I just noticed this today concerning the “DDR rifle Chronology” sticky. It states: 1971 Slant break accepted and standardized. Can this infor be verified? Now I’m confused as to what I should use on my 71 build.
Pretty sure a muzzle nut is still correct for a 71, my 72 all-matching has a muzzle nut. All those 71 and 72 crutch folders sent to Egypt had muzzle nuts. NVA probably started swapping them out at the unit level for slant brakes anyways.
