Interesting CB...

German Engineering is marvelous.

On the flip side of the coin, there is no such thing as German Simplicity!

You folks have obviously never owned an air-cooled VW. One hose, has gas in it. One belt, no idler pully. A gas guage was an option on mine... that the original owner didn't elect to pay for.

I think I have power tools with more moving parts.

I wonder if the extending of the bottom of the magazine wasn't for semi (less spring tension) and fully secure position for full auto (more spring tension) ?

IIRC mine held 15 up 20 down ?? (been a while since I played with them).

Ah yes , but from the way they were packed , I'd say they stored them collapsed. Plus the Germans would never allow such a waste of space !

Space.......perhaps that's it. They wanted a smaller storage package so they made them collapse??One that would fit in normal AK pouches etc.

I'll be post - post ban gawking at Niles as well...
