The box is made by the Amish.

It is not supposed to be an exact repoduction just like the gun isn't exact. And would the Germans actually ship the gun disassembled like we get ours? Probably not. I would again speculate the box is the size it it for cheaper shipping rates. The gun has allen head machine screws holding it together. I don't think they were original either.

Of course, you could always remove the grabber screws in the box and replace them with real slotted wood screws.

I like eveything, except for the rear site problem, just like it is. I love the gun and I can over look the non original way it is built. It is not an exact copy but it is as close as I will ever come to one. But you get the idea!
