G. Grafrath German Springer

Post by Tkreil66 » Fri Apr 12, 2019 1:56 am

Finally found my first Grafrath Springer after a long time of looking. Needs a little work spring replaced ( appears to be a 1 piece) and a good cleaning, scales look great.I have already emailed Bill D. to have it done and will post after pics.
Thanks for looking

Tkreil66,

As a fan and collector of old German leverlocks I was quite intrigued by the photo of your collection. If you have the time and interest, please post photos. I can assure you many of us would be most appreciative.

Thank you all for looking!

Jim D, thanks for the interest! I will be posting more soon, my family and I have been in the process of moving the last month and it’s been a pain with no extra time.
