Hyperion, your rifle "might" need a much narrower front sight than the pushbutton release model uses. I just measured one of my Walthers that uses the curved spring type lock and the narrow part of the dovetail measures 0.143" and a different Walther with the pushbutton measures 0.164" . The front sights are not interchangable on my examples. I don't know if other Walthers have this difference.

dbuffington, a difference in my Meisterbüchse and yours is the receiver on mine has the receiver grooves continuing on the front of the receiver and mine is marked on the barrel rather than the receiver. interesting, mine is serial number is 33548W

williwm,

Mine has a downward curved (pushbutton) spring. I will see if I have anything to measure the ID (inside diameter). dbuffington has got me looking at my lens macro ability; if I can get a few shots, I will post them.

My rifle has continuous receiver grooves on the front and rear of the receiver. The top of the barrel is marked Sportmodell Walther Meisterbuchse. My serial number is 73171.

Hyperion, you may not need a macro lens if you have a Canon SX600HS series camera. They take outstanding close-ups with no attachments. Attached, hopefully, are three random samples that I took with my 600 and I am not a camera geek.

I'll give it a try. Thanks!

I have a Canon EOS Rebel T3i. I am checking depth of field and it looks like I will need to use a tripod to get what I want.
