    That’s a really nice one. Love the wood on it. First report on this one.

    So, K.43 #2885d is reported in Claus Espeholt’s listings, but not a whole lot of info on it.

    K.43 #2852d is the...

    Nice one! You can see that is absolutely a factory error.

    It really is. And, it’s the only thing out there on these and I’m grateful to have mine. However; Weaver is coming out with a new book on these......someday.

    Too late of a gun to be an "ac43". ac43's are the early ones and super rare. It's most likely an "ac44". Yes, that safety is weird and not anything probably any of us have seen before.

    On the stock, at the "keel", is there any other stamps? There should be at the wrist and another one maybe behind the serial number.

    Oh, okay. I see what was being referenced to now. Hmmmm, don't know if that's "American" specifically or if German cursive was the same....or what? Just odd that both rifles were pretty close to...

    I've seen that before, specifically on either a Gustloff G.43 or a BLM rifle where a pair of locking lugs had been "lined out" and the new number e penciled on them. Factory error or re-work? Don't...

    Yes, it's a "cursive g" on BLM rifles. BLM had the cursive letters. BLM's "7"s and "1"s SUCK!!! They are easy to get confused with. So, I have to be super careful when seeing a serial number with...

    Not necessarily. I haven't (that I know of) come across G.41 or G/K.43 "depot marked rifles" marked like rifles would be marked as the K.98k's that are depot marked. I'm sure some went through the...

    Right now I’m away from my things to see, but BLM production of G.41’s was into ‘44 for sure. Off hand just don’t know how far though.

    BLM was still producing the G.41 in ‘44, well after Walther stopped. And, they were still marked “duv43”. Last block on the BLM’s was h block, but there was one i block “receiver only” reported.

    Nice G.41! I think the e penciling is period done, but I have no idea why. In my listings of these, G.41 ac43 #6527a was just reported on 10-05-19. That rifle has oddly e penciled “G-12” areas...

    Me personally, I’d leave the front sight alone and not put any hood on it. Didn’t know the AK/MP44’s had a pressed in barrel.

    The modern Heckler and Koch and CETME rifles also use a pressed in barrel. (Not speaking of the really recent new ones produced). I’m trying to see the advantage of “pressed in” vs. threaded? ...

    Sorry to hear on the health issues. No problem on looking as it’s not important on our end of things to know.

    It’s possible that it never had one installed. It’s also reasonable that one was put on it and taken off (for who knows why) very carefully. My “vote” would be that it probably didn’t have one. I...

    Thanks for posting the rifle. Everything shown is absolutely correct. I always liked the “ZF K.43” stamp on the stock. That rifle is late c block and they only went to f block at the very end. ...

    From a collector’s stand point, they are just fine and should be desirable. My earlier G.43 ac44 d block doesn’t have a scope rail and I couldn’t be happier. And, like stated earlier, you will...

    It will be expensive until his new book comes out. I’ll still keep mine, but I suspect a lot will be on the market after that. Or, just wait it out for the new book. Unknown time frame, but it is...

    Hello,
    Yes, yours is in that transition from where they started labeling or calling these G.43’s to K.43’s and from the company code “duv” to “qve”. Yours is in the mix of all that. It wasn’t just...

    Yes, I have the entries where I noted them, but it would take a little bit of time to count them out at some point. I figured someday that little detail might be needed.

    We’ll need to know if it’s all matching or not if you need any more opinions. Bolt, firing pin housing, both locking lugs are what we are looking for.
