Grandfather just died a few months ago and had this in his collection all I know is he got it from some guy in a bar years back. The only marks I could find are under the barrel. Does any one have any knowledge to share

Excellent group of German Proof Marks:

Crown/B = Proved in finished condition
Crown/U = Definitive proof
Crown/B = Proof for rifled barrels

Krupp Stahl = Krupp Steel (Krupp is a huge steel maker specializing is ordnance steel)

12/30 date stamp
7.8mm 64 might be interpreted as 8x64 (Brenneke)

Does any one have any idea where to find parts for this rifle. Such as a trigger assembly. Pretty sure the thing is just worn out and you can clearly see some one modified it at some point??

Here ya go. You can see the file marks. I do t know anything about these triggers but I don’t think that’s supposed to be there.

Try these guys: New England Custom Gun

If memory serves me, at one time one of the owners was a relative of Paul Jaeger, Jenkintown, Pa.
