Found this site while researching a little BSW Suhl that i bought a few weeks ago. Posted some pics on the Rimfire Central forum and got some good info
there. Just checking here for the possibility of any more information.
I know (think?) it it is a pre-war model, made by Simpson & Co prior to the Nazi's taking control. It appears that Simpson started mfg in 1934, then around ser#220000 (1939?) the proof mark was changed to eagle over N. So....with my ser# being 136652 that probably would put it in the 1934 -1939. Seems to be a smoothe little 22, and came with what appears to be the original sling, sights, etc.
My main question being...is there any way of determing a more accurate mfg date??
