To old to fight and to old to run, a Jar head will just shoot and be done with you.

Ive managed to pick up a 1916 Danzig recently, matching numbers from what I can see and unmolested.
They are nice looking rifles. My butt stock has an imprint of what it looks like a heal print from a boot

Please post your rifle here so all can see another intact specimen. I would love to see it. Lots of photos of the details, do the screw numbers even match? What about all the bolt parts??? Cleaning rod too??
