Well, my recent thread about the Stery Zephyr got no responses; let's see if this one will get any.
I recently acquired a Mauser Mm410B sporter to go along with my other German pre-war 22 sporters. In looking through Speed's book, he notes that there were some of these with low serial numbers and he speculates that they were for export (to Great Britain?). Well, my 410B happens to be one of the low serial number rifles 49XXX; most are in the 200,000+ range.
Does anyone else have one of these, and is it export marked (mine is not)? Thanks.
P.S. Mine was not a closet queen and is showing its age. What's the consensus on trying to do anything to the metal or wood finish on this rifle. I probably already know the answer, since I would advise others against it. I just have this strong urge to see it as it was in its glory.
