I have seen a Mauser Oberndorf 1940 K98k with a ZF 41.
This rifle is in the same condition as it was in 1944 when collected by a farmer in Normandy. That means it is very nice, either the bluing or the stock.

I have noticed that many parts were changed (stock in particular, modified to fit the ZF 41, WaA 214 so from BLM?) and renumbered to match the barrel, action and bolt so I suppose it has started its life as a regular K98k and was latter modified to have a ZF 41.
The rail to fix the ZF has a groove rail.
It is coded 42 as expected and belongs to the y batch.

Any thoughts?

Next time is see it, I will try to have a closer look to the ZF 41 itself.

You can also note it is lightly chequered also.
