    That's a post-war, communist Yugoslavian stock, not original to the rifle and not related to Slovakian production.

    Outstanding! :thumbsup:

    You're correct, there's next to no info on these, or the Type II's for that matter. That one is in nice shape, certainly better than alot of the standard configuration...

    Good question, I wish I could answer that definitively for you. It seems like things became less 'standard' and more variable in terms of support kit like slings the later in the war it was. Given...

    Very cool, and in the Great White North, no less! :thumbsup:

    Definitely an odd-ball (the late Model 91/28) as the Carcanos go, made even more interesting by the depot stamp, which are only rarely...

    No worries! It didn't come off that way at all.

    Mike,
    Have you had it out of the stock yet? Just wondering what the receiver/barrel markings are like.

    Even though some non-essential things (full stamping, for example) were omitted later, the overall build quality for these remained very high all the way to the end. ...

    Very cool rifle, Mike! I agree, I really like that sling swivel modification. It reminds me of some of the ones done on Vz.24 rifles. Congrats on a cool pick-up!

    I asked about the bolt closing as modified magazine followers are frequently overlooked or not recognized as German alterations in rifles like that.

    Repeating myself, but nice snag! It looks good. Love the nice Petar II stamp on the stock, it's in great shape. Does the bolt close on an empty magazine?
