    All are milled and solid, thanks. I'll then use one of those unserialized barrel bands that I still have somewhere in my boxes. Rather easy restoration then! Is the bayonet lug serialized?

    Would this rifle have had milled (solid, H band?) or stamped barrel bands? And would the bayonet lug had been serialized to match it?

    Looks like a re-engraved Swedish contract Ajack scope to look like a SS scope. And all of this is topped with a reproduction LSR mount.

    The contrast of below and outside the wood is astonishing. Basically it looks like the blueing covers the grooves in the barrel and it has a better surface below the wood line. I've never seen...

    These are only poor quality mobile phone pictures, but they show the markings that are present on the barrel below the wood line. Note how nice the finish is where it was covered by the wood.

    I agree that this mount might had lead myself to thinking it could be original too. This is one of the best reproduction mounts I've seen so far. Sorry to hear it was sold to you as an original.

    Paul, thank you. I hope I'll find time to get the stock off today and check for additional markings on the barrel. Re the crossbolt, not sure if I should change it. It was not touched since 1945, why...

    A detail I like very much is the fact that the stock got mis-serialized to the rifle one digit off (9443 instead of 9444) - they simply "corrected" this by a pencil written (and making it matching) 4...

    First of all, many thanks for the kind comments! I also really love this rifle, it is hard to upgrade such a piece. And I rather have those with some traces of their history, than a mint rifle...

    A very interesting detail is the cocking piece - it is marked with a circled Z on bottom which reminds me of a Czech (or Serbian?) connection, but maybe the local experts can help me.
