Thanks, yes, trends work shows DWM/1916 to be a big production run, - actually across the board for all makers. Danzig the highest by far, but both Spandau & DWM made it to the "kk" block. DWM may have passed it, as the highest known is in the 9000 kk block.
PM is right regarding surviving numbers, DWM/1916 is one of the most common observed, but any quality Gew.98 (Imperial) is desirable.
More pictures would be helpful, the right receiver, stock markings if the stocks matches.
All matching with the firing pin missing? Could this be a bringback or one of the war trophy rifles?I will add the photos requested tomorrow. All of the numbers do match with the exception of the firing pin which was missing when I acquired the rifle 25 years ago. Incidentally the bore in the gun is very good. Thank you for the information and your interest.
