JP, there are several Polte drawings c. 1937-38 showing these dimensions and differing in case capacity and/or groove diameter. Known specimens are headstamped according to their drawing numbers: 4907e, 5265, 5330 and 5300. Which one you have found?

JP,

yes, but that is a Mauser-Factory number from Abt. E, mostly from the 30thies…most of this drawings where token by french military after occupying the factory. I got some from the former SFM-factory, as I bought Rifles from Maison Drouot…
Fede, do you have this Polte drawings? May you can share them…or by email??

Yes, it is a Mauser drawing, you are right.
Mauser drawings (including Polte ones) were taken by Frenchs at the end of the war.

It corresponds to drawing PF 4249 from Polte[/color]
