Hi,

Haven't posted here in quite awhile. Thought I'd show pics of my new Series 26 I got about two months back.

Best,

Gunnar

nice! do you have indentions of screw heads in you upper hand guard? A lot of 26th series Kokuras have them. I suspect they were used in some sort of training device...

Hi Trey,

No, I can find no screw head impressions in the area you specified. The numbers on mine place my piece anywhere from 25,000 - 30,000 guns above the range of 26's with screw-head impressions as referenced in the Allen book but then you've likely seen examples with evidence of sub-caliber use outside that range too.

Next to post will be my series 30.

Best,

Gunnar
