My flavor changes over time. At one time byf45 was my favorite, then svw45, then dou45, then swp45. It all depends on what I am chasing?

I guess right now my favorite is bcd4, only because you find guns from all of the makers with that code ;)

I also bounce around based on current interest. I have always liked the late dou and dot/swp45 guns, my current interest is byf45. In fact, byf in general. Funny how that works. A bcd45 has been on my list forever. I have never had one, I've had most other post-44 code/dates, to include a few tough ones. Of course, the bcd45 would have to be a LSR sniper. Any late snipers are of particular interest.

Favorite 98k

Hi Guys:
I like the early ones with the walnut stocks, particularly "K"
dates. I have a non-RC S/42K but it's mismatched. I also need
a 1938 and 1939, they I'll have one for every year they were
made. It would also be nice if the 38 or 39 were Kreigsmarine

I like how he asks what your "favorite" is and many, to include himself ... lists several. Does not "what is your favorite" indicate .. a single answer?? Just an observation
