The first photo (Waffenfabrik Bern) has arrived!1. How long is the barrel?2. Is there a cover over the loading gate and is there a magazine cut-off?
Ask Your Own Blue Book of Guns, Firearms Appraisals Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Barrel is 31.1 inches. No cover over loading gate. Perhaps further investigation of all 3 pics can answer the magazine cut-off question.
Firearms Expert: Philip Van Cleave, Associate Degree replied 3 years ago
Other photos haven't arrived yet. I can probably narrow it down with a few more questions: 1. Look at the rear sight. Is it graduated to 1,000 or 1,200 or 1,600?2. Is there one barrel band or two?
