I don't know who ol' Karl was, he may have been a small maker, he may have been the final assembler of gunmaker's guild parts in his area, or he might have just been the dealer. Lots of guns are marked for who sold them, not who made them.

I am fairly sure he did not move to Colorado and continue putting German proofmarks on his guns. Largely because the maker does not apply proof marks in Europe, that is the job of the government proof house.
