Petrov's comments makes me put a grain of salt with the artikel.

>>From "Guns" magazine March 1958,

"The Gunsmith too Tough to Die" by John Fisher Kerr, has lot of the Heym history as told by August Heym.<<

If anyone cannot find it I can add some screen-shots to view it. Maybe I should do that anyway.

Raimey,
Thanks for the article about August Heym. By the time I got there, he had died and somehow Mauser had taken control of the company and were making Mauser Mod.2000, 3000, 4000 rifles and sub caliber(14.4mm) training devices for training of 105mm Artillery forward observers, and some automobile parts as well as Heym guns. When I went back for my second tour, the courts had returned ownership to the family and August's widow was the owner. As far as I know, she and August had no children.
Mike
