    Sorry, to clarify - mine's not a Portuguese contract.

    If you (or Beavis) wouldn't mind, I'm experiencing a slight problem with the magazine floorplate retention on mine. Perhaps you can help? Recently during a shoot, the whole assembly shot out the bottom. Seems I've all the parts but for some reason the retaining pin won't remain captive in the well. If you compared mine to yours does it appear as if I'm missing something?

    The last pic suggests that it is held captive but it isn't, loading the magazine or the motion of a round being picked up from it, moves the plate and the pin just pops out.

    The exploded diagram of this particular area doesn't suggest I am? Unless I'm looking against my eyelids, which has been known to occur.

    So 655 is the Wa? Reason I ask is according to the chart I use, 655 is associated with the factory code "42" which is Mauser - Oberndorf. My '38 manufactured gun is S/243. I'm OCD about such things.

    Roger that. The German guns with that Wa code probably have 42 stamp. I forgot the Portugese ones had the coat of arms. Nice piece anyway.

    More of a sword than a bayonet IMO.

    The floor plate should be held firmly on by a captured latch. You should need a pin or the tip of a bullet to make it pop off. Unless the stamped German ones are different somehow. My German one has milled bottom metal and my Czech one has a post war stamped one but the floor plate is captive.

    My one pushes in with a bullet tip but the plate wasn't keen to pop off.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
