If the gun was a gift from a relative, I would take that as a sign that he or she meant for you to shoot it and enjoy it. Original, correct "tombstone" follower magazines are pricey but since the gun...

I ground one of the bits from my Brownell's Magna-Tip screwdriver set specifically to fit the rounded bottom slot of the takedown screw. The bits are very inexpensive.
The one I used was the # 300-6.

Stingers will not chamber in my Walther KKJ rifle. I assume that it has a match chamber, or at least something close to it. And I didn't want to try and force the bolt closed. No problems in my 1974...

I have just listed a nice Bushnell Banner .22 Rimfire Scope and set of Warne QD mounts for an 11mm or 3/8" dovetail in the classifieds. This rig was on my Walther KKJ and with the straight tube...

The Walther QD mount reminds me of the Redfield Jr. mounting system. The front ring is attached simply by a screw coming up from the bottom rather than a dovetail as Redfield does. The rear ring has...

The Walther factory QD mount is cool because it is factory and "retro". It does sit higher than two piece ring mounts like Warne, by about a half inch. That may be desirable if you have a scope with...

Interesting and a good score. There seems to be some variation in those mounts. This example has rounded ends to the levers and the rings are split horizontally and not at the 4 and 8 o'clock...

Browning Factory Letters Question

In the thread about the Browning Medalist SER # 35421U3S there is mention of a service offered by Browning to receive a "factory letter" for $40.

I too love vintage leather for my guns. I am a fan of the Eubanks holsters which I feel are every bit as good of quality as a Lawrence from the same era. Here are a couple.

That Walther factory mount is nice, but also looks like typical German over-engineering. That's quite a bit of steel to hang on top of a very slim & trim and lightweight rifle.

That's a beautiful rifle Andy and the look that I was going for with the installation of the Warne QD rings and an older gloss finish straight tube scope.

I love those double set triggers. Does anyone know when Walther went from a crossbolt safety in the stock to a wing safety on the bolt sleeve ?

That is some beautiful wood on your KKJ iron85. I may go with the QD rings if I can find them. The Warne website says out of stock. Probably due to the shutdown and no production at the moment.
