    I like the stock but it's not the correct one for this rifle. It also has Jeem stamps showing Iraqi use post-war.

    Honestly I hope he chokes on the both of them. It would serve him right. Sounds like the Uncommonwealth playbook. I'd like to have seen the ads just for the comedy value.

    That is correct. Being in Suhl they shared the e/4 inspection group code. They also made bolt releases.

    Yeah I agree. This one is really out there.. but in a good way. I can't help but think about pre and early war rifles and how much different this had gotten.

    Yes!! I missed the first offering of the BGS rifles but grabbed a few beauty G1s when Apex first had them. Beautiful rifles IMO and that sling is pretty darn mint!

    That is a really nice rifle. As stated not easy to find this clean and unmolested. These have been climbing in price pretty steadily over the last 5-10 years so you might not have overpaid. I...

    Dang. That would have been about as good as you could get really. Maybe the person you sold it to wants to make a deal?

    That really is a handsome rifle and I see why you wouldn't pass it up. It's amazing how rich the blue on the barreled action still is and it contrasts beautifully with that walnut. Your photography...

    That just blows my mind. I think it's more outrageous than some of the Elite and Uncommonwealth 'sales' over the last few years where guys bid up 1500ish guns to over 3 and even 4k. Insane. ...

    Snug is definitely better than loose. The fact that you 'think' you could get it on by hand is good. A dowel or block of wood and tapping won't hurt anything.

    100% beyond a doubt. Reminded me a bit of Drago. He got a hold of those jumbo TK and Das Reich stamps and couldn't contain himself.

    Interesting piece indeed. Based on your very low production estimate have many others been seen? Has Unutt ever posted his? Thanks for sharing.

    And now I also see just what's 'missing'. And by i block it's the block CE. I wonder if the broken die is actually what pushed the change? Maybe that was just too much for someone at Sauer to look...

    Yes I agree Stephan. I thought maybe he was talking about the C on top but I don't notice anything too obvious. Not a big Sauer guy though. Very nice unmolested rifle!

    Great time capsule! I do hope you'll show us some after photos as well. I think this is a perfect candidate for some light handed cleaning and oil. As was mentioned I'd have the original firing...

    I looked at it and man it has a lot of things going on... none of them good for a 'collector' gun. Brass screws in the butt plate was and interesting twist. Not sure I'd seen that one before. ...
