The most common mech. combination lock in european Safes?

Dear all,
After a very enjoyable experience with my first LaGard3330 (Not least due to the fantastic input from this forum), I'd like to continue the hobby and am looking for a new challenge.
In Particular, I was interested those locks that are most in use in Germany and the rest of Europe. In your opinion, wich are the usual suspects here?

Thanks a lot in advance and happy Manipulating!

The 3330 is here probably the most common. Catching up is the 3390, which is much more difficult to manipulate. In the past very common, but declining, are the big Kromer locks 3011 and 3012. And in older safes there are also locks from Sargent & Greenleaf, the 6730 and derivatives.
