Question 1937 Hk

Looking at a 1937 Krieghoff. Everything I have seen in pictures looks ok. The serial number is in the 7900range. The inspection stamp under the right grip is a 7 , According to Gibson this should be a star after 6400 or so. Has anybody else seen a 1937 HK with a 7 inspection stamp ? The serial number on the frame looks fine. Could this be a frame made in 1936 when the 7 inspection stamp was used, and not utilized until 1937? Help. Bill

Bill, I would send an e-mail to John Dunkle, see if he has time. I would listen to him on a krieghoff over anyone else I know.

Hi Bill.!!

I tried to e-mail you after our Private Messages - I'm guessing you didn't get it?? Anyway - I'd be pleased to take a look at any pictures you send may way, but I may not have a chance to take a close look until late tonight when I get home..? You can send them to:

johnd@rennlist.com

Also - Ed..!!! With the weather finally turning to "summer" rather than "duck season" - you and I should get to the range!! Maybe we'll shoot my 1938 HK

Best to you!

JD

Sure beats BINGO You have to wear those funny hats when you play BINGO? If so - I'm gonna pretend I don't know you...

Also - Bill..!!!
