    Farb, I'm seeing an additional pressure proof added? Second to last image in post #15.

    It could be a German-manufactured stock used post war by Yugoslavia, or as you say, a reused part.

    A decent stock, hand guard, and bands will cost you as much as the rifle itself. That is, if you can even find such a stock set.

    Very nice!

    Just to confirm, this has a counterbored muzzle? That's what the crown on the barrel shoulder should indicate.

    Very plausible, though I get hung up on the 'accountability' aspect of this. WaA's carry a number for a reason; in Imperial times, the same would be true of a crown/fraktur letter, with the letter...

    Superb rifle, thank you for sharing Peter.

    Anyone have thoughts on the 4th eagle on the barrel, the no-number WaA that covers part of the barrel code? It almost appears like a firing proof.

    I'd put it through a couple of heating and cooling cycles while using a penetrating oil in between.

    Boiling hot water is excellent for this; it will heat the area thoroughly, won't affect bluing...

    From my eye, that image looks like a walnut stock (post #10). Not sure what the 'E' would represent; the font size is a bit smaller than the usual 'B'.

    There are some instances of Imperial depot...

    Other contemporary miltarys were using beech as well, I believe Sweden and Austria made use of it during the Great War era.

    Let us know how it shoots. You're well within the positive side, money wise. Russian captures sell for way more $ and are a lot less interesting.

    Looks to be a rebarrel, with maybe Magdeburg firing proof? Stock is probably a cut down Gew98 stock.

    Yes, a 1924 dated Loewe Berlin M98.

    Posted here since it's an Imperial era name that ceased to exist by that name in 1896. By the receiver date, it may be considered Weimar era?

    If that receiver serial has been scrubbed and renumbered (to match the bolt), there could be some Federal felony action happening there.

    For me, I see no Czech connection. I have seen a few Czech marked Gew's, all had a 'S-lion-#' marking, with the # being a Czech depot designation. IIRC, they all retained their LV sights.
