Regarding 1912: nope, the date code marking did not become mandatory in 1912. The Suhl proof house started using this in September 1923, the Zella-Mehlis proof house did it earlier. But usage was not mandatory.
This is contrary to Wirnsberger's standard book on German proof marks, do you have any citation for that?
I used to love being able to hit hard at 1000 yards. As I get older I find hitting a mini ram at 200 yards with the 22 oddly more satisfying.
