Not know wat ''OSW'' means but, the ''bwp'' on the right means it is built at BAMAG (Berlin-Anhaltische Maschinenbau AG) in Dessau.



barrel serial R3238. Looks the same (a R and 4 digits) as the numbers on modern German tank barrels which are built by Rheinmetal

The breech marking is very different from the one located at Overloon

Also the markings are on different locations of the breech

Hello Michel,
I expected Germans to be very precise Wink and put the stamps/markings on the right place with every gun

are there any 3-letter codes on the one in Overloon? Maybe it is built at a different location were they had different rules were to put the markings?

BTW I have the intention to visit Overloon also this holiday.

Regards,
Lesley
