    5,671 may be a good source.

    All I know is Deutsches Sportmodell rifles are aka DSM. My cousin has a German bolt action .22 and it is a great shooter; his looks like a military trainer for marksmanship practice. Shot great at targets at 65 yards; I would expect it to be a good small game rifle as-is.

    Saw a excellant condition DSM listing at $800 a while back. I have heard the German makers have no records from the 1930s and have read stories of all the firearms records not burned by the Germans were destroyed by the Allies trashing the conquered factories. Detailed info is hard to come by.

    Deutsches is the German world for German. The "f" and "r" in Deutfcher are an "s" and "s" in the classic German "Fraktur" script (look at all the "f" for "s" in the facsimiles of the U.S. Declaration of Indepence ).
    Cogito me cogitare; ergo, cogito me esse.
