A Falke 80 (serial no. 81) with an odd groove across the loading port turned up in Germany recently (see Falkes advertised Nov '09 to Jun '10 post in gallery for more pics).
The groove looks properly done and the finish looks the same as the surrounding metalwork, suggesting it might be a contemporary feature rather than a subsequent mod.
What could this be for? Did the grooves help to locate some sort of quick-loading device being developed by Falke, that was placed across the port and a pellet dispensed with the press of a button?!
