But when we compare this proved, longest 3,7-cm L/30 Version with the 3,7-cm `Lukigura´
version, the question raised, if this would be maybe on of the shorter L/23 or L/21 versions
which Ludwig Boell mentioned in his letter to Sabath?

To be honest, the breech block looks also completely different, between both Versions.

If I had to guess:
upper picture - Krupp with Gruson DNA (post 1893)
lower picture - purebred Krupp (pre 1893)

I would agree with the assumption. So we stay open for further investigations with the 3,7-cm Gun versions.
(
Again; - thanks for the other info; - I will come back later to the 6-cm Gebirgskanone L/15 in Kolonial-Lafette)
