Composite type Gem...

November 17 2011, 4:44 PM 

Hi Keld,

Nice find. I think you're right, it's a Composite type Gem made by Fritz Langenham between the wars circa 1920-39. Have seen these stamped "Made Abroad" on one of the barrel flats, which could be interpreted as being made at a time when sentiment towards German products wasn't at a high point...

I have a scrap action/barrel...infact most bits apart apart from the sights and mainspring!...if you have a look at the link below, hopefully you can see it was an anglular type of frontsight with a bead...I'll see if I have a better pic somewhere...

Hi Keld,

Blimey!...that's a beauty and no mistake! :D ...no promises, but I think I may have a serviceable Diana 3L type stock, I'll have a look in the shed later on and let you know.

Still trying to find a good pic of the compo gem frontsight...(I sold the 3 I had a while back)
