HSc and the Triangular big chuck of steel in front of trigger...

OK, i compare an early HSc serial 703857 early (1941) up against an older serial 904050 KM 4. variation (1944) - easy to see the difference, early one is hollow, and late one is solid...

The backpack (Tornist) is a German heer model made by Franz Brehme Walsrode 1942.
The pipe is a typical soldier pipe used by German soldiers in wwII made by Bruyere. Both items is leftower and found in German store located in Norway in 1945.

I havent tryed yet to shoot with both guns, to compare balance and recoil - that would be my next goal with the exelent pistol; the HSc...

Thank you!

Nice guns and knapsack. That calf skin covering is reminiscent of the ones carried by Berdan's Sharp Shooters.

The late one would require less machining and also would be stronger and provide better support for the takedown latch. Looks like "product improvement" to me. In a pistol of that size the weight difference would probably not be significant.

Where I hunt, carrying that knapsack in the woods during hunting season is like begging to be shot....
