My favourite typewriter. It has a very light action, and if it wasn't for the French key layout I would use it all the time. It is heavy (40.6lbs), and as you might expect from a company with Rheinmetall's history it is built like the proverbial tank.

I originally bought one typewriter for personal use, but within weeks was buying more as the collecting bug crept up on me. I am mainly interested in European makes from the 50s and 60s.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Rheinmetall Gs on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Rheinmetall Serial Number page and the Rheinmetall Gs By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
