    Stephan, here is one for you. I don't have a lot of MO rifles that are not either restorations or reworks, etc. I do have 2 byf44 with matched stocks, but they are devoid of any markings under the...

    The plate may have by some obscure chance been part of the Third Reich from something, but how it got on that 98/40 has nothing to do with the rifle.

    One of these is on my bucket list, as my Dad and I have a correct scope and mount for it sitting here.

    Someday...:thumbsup:

    Another question I have, as I do not own a Sauer HT or scope set to compare to MO examples, is either one of these mount sets interchangeable with MO bases/rings? If so, which set?

    Is there any reliable listing of subcontractors which may have, pre-war, manufactured sporting bases, and may have then begun providing mounts and bases according to the wartime design we now see?...

    That was, indeed, a great find, Dad! It pays to trawl eBay for obscure stuff. But it takes a lot of time.

    Excellent scope, Brian. Here is your scope's brother, check the serial number - 81364, three off of yours!

    Not nearly as good in condition, though. This one is from Romania, and Robert Spielauer...

    I assume the mounts will fit either ring set? Meaning they are interchangeable?

    Well, look at that. Two different setups.

    You sure do have an eye for minor variances, I would not have noticed that right off.

    Thanks for posting!

    I agree, Brian. In this particular case, there are a multitude of other verifying factors and I for one would overlook the proof's absence and be proud to have it.

    But yes, I am also very curious...

    Awesome rifle, Bruce, I love it.

    Years back I had a similar HT barreled action missing the mount bases, it was a recycled ar43 reciever as well.

    I always wanted a 2 cm Flak 38, even non firing. Oh, well, I'll just live vicariously through you.

    I missed this post, great rifle. Thanks for posting it.

    I have a soft spot for sporter restorations, that one was done really well. I love the scope.

    Agreed. X2 on the reading and study requirement for this stuff.

    I would start off with a LSR, they are easier to authenticate, and not too terribly hard to find.
