Default Basic HK Toggle Question

I thought I knew the answer to this but maybe not: So help please.

Are HK toggles back bored all the way or part of the way or does this vary through the years?

Attached is a picture from the toggle of a 1942 HK and clearly shows a partial back bore, but I know I have seen toggles bored all the way through on some guns-- is there a right and wrong way?

thanks

Vern

LugerVern--I tried a search for the significance of a flat topped 4 and had no luck. Could you please explain?? Thank You--Al

Vern, Not sure exactly what you are asking or what you mean by backbored, but the exterior edge of HK toggle knobs holes are "generally" chamfered or beveled... other manufacturers are not.

My Krieghoff Parabellum reference book is packed away somewhere, and so are my Luger Photo Archive CD's so I don't have any photos I can post at present to compare.

Hopefully John D. will see your post and chime in on your questions. I am no HK expert, but I do not like the year stamping in your slightly out of focus photo of the chamber area. The year digits don't seem to line up as well as I would expect an HK to appear. Do you have any better photos of this gun?

Vern -

I think I see what you are pointing out in reference to the chamber date. On page 109 of Gibson's book there is a photograph of a 1942 chamber date. In the photograph you posted, I think that in addition to the "4" looking strange as you have pointed out, the number "2" is also very suspicious looking when compared to the photograph in Gibson's book. And maybe it is just the way the lighting affects the picture; however, it appears the base of the "9" extends too far below the base-line of the date. In Gibson's book it appears that the base-line of the 1942 date is perfectly straight.

Thank you for sharing.
