    German market import M937A rifles

    Fred there were a large number of the first series contract imported into Germany.
    I would assume that the bayonets would have also been bundled with the rifles as Portugal had no use for them.

    Go to your autoparts store and get some Aircraft Peeler.

    Farb clued me in on its merits and I recommend it.

    Also good for cleaning dirty stocks.

    In this case being 1933, the "Ch." is a prefix for the steel lot code, denoting Bohler & Co.

    zf41 late war

    I would bet that the scopes could be any example manufactured in 1944 and into 1945.
    Check Ken's site out as that one resource.

    This rifle was likely assembled in early 1943 even though the date code states 2nd to last week of 1942.
    In my estimation the final assembly of the rifle could be days or weeks after the stock was...

    Black sling

    I am going against the grain here.
    IMO, these are late war variant slings with the phosphated sling lock.

    Have purchased several rifles over the last 30 years with these slings mounted.

    Standard Modell conversion

    Your example is not a Mauser factory conversion but instead is a depot conversion to K98k configuration.

    S/42G for discussion

    There are examples in 1935 Mauser production where the trigger housing screws are devoid of Waffenamnts.
