    We are in agreement, I certainly do not know, it just seemed implausible to me, not that I have any special insight regarding the arming of bakers or other auxiliary troops in the late 19th - early...

    That is a good price imo, though valuations are dependent upon many factors, - this rifle is rare in this condition, the sling is a couple hundred dollars, the muzzle cover could be $100 or more. The...

    Clay, I am not overly suspicious of the bolt, it is probably legit, the early style of the HZa/Su acceptance lends credibility I think, if it were more "nazi" I would be more suspicious.

    It's an Simson 98b bolt for sure, d-f blocks possible, would lean early e-block by the acceptance, but possibly f-block in ranges. Hard to be sure of much regarding this sort of analysis, so few...

    Take a picture of the wrist, at a minimum it should have an acceptance stamp here. This was a ordnance spare stock or a leftover; hopefully the German ordnance depot marked it at the wrist, but...

    Sure I do, Amberg is a significant interest of mine, though they can be a little tedious as they rarely change patterns. They are like a state run Mauser Oberndorf, high quality and consistency.
