    Ausgezeichnet! The Walther plant made the best guns of the three, although Mauser was a close second. Looks like an ‘ac 43’? Can’t make out the letter on the serial, which provides a fairly accurate month code for Walther produced pistols.

    1943 production went to 9999n. Walther produced a minimum of 10,000 units a month. So figure early December.

    Thanks ! I actually thought with a serial number of 4xx n it would have been earlier.

    Note to self - when there is a craze and company is out of stock, don't forget you put an order in for fulfillment when back in stock ( back in October in this case ). Don't know if I'm happy or bummed, really didn't want them, but the price is right, and who knows, maybe the craze will come back. Any who, two on the way to me - lol.

    Finally finished the build and zero'ed it today. My first "new" personal rifle in literally 20 years, the last one was 1997 (Remington 700 chambered in 308 with Leupold scope):

    SBR Primary Weapons Systems MK2 chambered in 308
    Trijicon ACOG 3.5x35 optic model TA11C
    TBAC Ultra 9 suppressor direct-thread
    Surefire M600 Ultra Scout Light
    Troy Industries 45-degree Offset Sights







    Fired about 40 rounds out of it today... thankfully my buddy was there to help with the gas settings to work perfectly with the suppressor and Malaysian .308 ammo I'm using with it. This will be my primary SHTF rifle plus my home defense firearm. My current home defense rifle was a suppressed 9mm MP5 and I wanted the knockdown power of 308, plus this will make a great coyote gun.

    Very happy with the build. Few minor things to add, but this is basically finished.

    It's still viewable via the wayback machine, but a lot of the pictures are gone.

    Thanks for the tip on Geco. I'm going to pickup a few boxes and see how it runs in the P32.
