Default Small or Large Toggles Openings

Small or Large Toggles?

I am still confused on the topic of HK toggle openings; did Krieghoff make standard toggles for some of their guns?

In other words, is this a defining trait or just something that is nice to have on your HK.


Thanks

Vern

Tom & Vern,

The photo on the left appears to have poor lighting but magnification appears to show that this hole is also chamfered... ("beveled edge" for the non-engineering types)

I am actually more concerned with the one on the right.

This looks to me like a DWM toggle ( on the right).

The reason I brought this up is that a couple of years ago I made a mistake between a DWM & HK toggle, I got my money back, but it was not pleasant.

So, generally speaking, you would accept both as HK produced?

( I know this isn't fair, not seeing the rest of the gun, Its the Holidays and I am trying to be good)

Rest of the guns...

I think the 1937 HK had a price tag of $ 9995 before the "hold" tag went up...

Page 169 of Gibsonâ??s book, SN 9088 (1937) has the same type of toggle as the gun on the right. I think we are seeing a toggle variation here.

I am not completely happy with this gun; note the frosting in the safety area and the lack of machine marks. Also I am concerned about the broken â??8sâ?.

I also have a question about the E/2 on the lower frame right side, is this consistently applied enough to use as a criteria?

I am glad I found the example of a similar toggle; I am a little less suspicious.

Vern,

Here are some photo scans of my S-Code HK Luger SN 2122...

Not a 1937...so not sure if my photos will help with your questions or not.

(Full photos of my HK are in a photo album in the Members Gallery section...)
