Default WOOA folks, be careful with what you put out!

Please re-read Tom Heller's and some of the other comments unde his. I rarely talk in absolute terms when addressing what HAS to be one way or another, But believe me when I say that Erfurt did in FACT stop proofing grip screws around 1917. The regulations cited were published much earlier and apparently the later amendment regs have never been found or published. Forget about proofed grip screws on MOST post 1916 Erfurts and focus on the finish of these screws matching the rest of the pistol. A 1917 or 1918 Erfurt with un-proofed screws is correct.
