Common German barrel lengths for "kipplaufs" include 60, 62.5, 65 cm, and others. Some are even shorter, to save weight. Mike

Maybe it started in the 50s. Different versions were pretty successful, most every soldier, sailor, and airman born since WW2 has used one. Millions of civilian versions are in use, all over the US. I would say that defines what "in common use

Correct. I measured a couple of sets & they are integer cm like say 65cm and of course it could well vary with calibre but should be integer cm. So, in my mind what this does is again point to say a gesteck or parts kit that was in English unit

Raimey - No, that image was, in fact, attempting to depict the tube length. The odd part is that it is a length that isn't a whole integer of cm, right? Ian

Ian: If that ruler is in Inches, that is an odd tube length for German rifled tubes @ 24 1/2" which would be 62+ cm? Or is the image just showing the drop? Cheers, Raimey rse

I've been using Lucas Extreme Duty Gun Oil, but hated the smell. So, I recently switched to M1 15w50. For grease, I've been using Super Lube synthetic with teflon, which is white and won't stain clothes when you rub a double against them.
