    I own G Date SN 4223 a. Does your mag match the gun? If not, would need to be B 90 acceptance.

    A small presentation of a recent G-Date addition.

    Serial number 5500e, with the DE63/DE63/ETP proof variations.

    Jan, it is interesting that some of the early production "a" suffix G Date right receivers have an indention like many of the K Date Mausers. Your G Dates B-90 S-91 4249a ; B-90 S-92 4947a, and this example B-90 S-91 4674a have the mark. In "The Mauser Parabellum" pgs. 100 & 101, the authors state that "this is only found on K Dates". Apparently the process which caused the mark continued into the early G Date production until it was corrected.

    Adrian Excellent observation. I did not notice it. Fellow collectors, please check your G dates and report the presence or absence of these indents. Thanks Jan

    Hi Adrian and Jan, Here is the area in question on G date #9324a. I've always assumed that these so called "indents" are actually scoring caused by the tips of the chuck like clamp, used to hold the barrel when it was screwed on to the receiver, protruding slightly beyond the face of the barrel flange. It seems that this problem was corrected sometime during the G date production run.
    Regards, Norm

    Roberto's thread started on 08-25-12 has some excellent examples of this mark on G Dates.
