I have recorded 67759, 68936 and 69077. This was Walther's own design of a DSM 34, thought they made them too. This model and others are discussed in John Speed's book on Mauser .22 rifles. Yours is Crown/N?

Joe, yes it is crown N proofed. Here are some pics, sorry for the poor quality the lighting in my room is not the best. The case came with it and is marked on the inside.

Here is the writting on the inside of the case. A note, the stock has been duffle cut and the cleaning rod is missing.

What is holding that front band on? The stacking rod is integral to holding the rifle together by tightening down that front cupped band on the the end of the stock. Is the bolt numbered to match on the underside?
