Shooting Plaque

Post by pmh » Sun Nov 18, 2012 3:55 pm

I was checking "New Posts" on the ABBS, and I found a thread pointing to this item on eBay.

I put a bid in, about £6.50 I think, forgot about it, and won.

It was described as Eschwege Marksman Club, and a Google search shows some reference to such a club, but nothing conclusive.

I was drawn to this, as the pistol is quite cearly an Original Model 6 with the plastic grip.

The small shield says:-

Schützenver
Eschwenge

with E.V. 1433 underneath.

Schützenver translates to: protection insurance, and Eschwenge is the name of a town/city.

Standeinweihung translates to: as of inauguration.

Sieger translates to: winner.

As there are no initals I take it to be position, rather than a surname.

Interesting piece.

Kind regards,



Phil

Nice piece Phil

Yes, definitely a M6 you can quite clearly see the button half way along the main tube indicative of the GISS system
