    Default byf43 'f' block

    I haven't posted any K98k in a while, so here is a very boring byf43 I picked up from Bruce ages ago. Some sloppy wood work in the sling and bolt cutouts but otherwise your typical f block.

    I think it's wonderful! I love the sling cutout. Makes it a bit unique.

    I have a byf 43 f block that I'll post up eventually. Mine is a little earlier by serial and in walnut.
    WTB: Rough milled, blued, unnumbered floor plate as found on late MO rifles. Unnumbered MO bands, both KM and standard type, MO KM stocks including an unaccepted one, MO bands and stock 5897, upper band 0643

    That's a beauty Ryan. I could look at byf 43s all day ;) I like the sling and bolt cutouts. Pic stickied, we needed an f block.

    Ryan... Nice rifle. The bolt cut out appears typical and expected for MO. The slight arch inside the cut out is signature MO, if that is what you are referrring to as sloppy?

    Here's another f-block for comparison. Also, note how the inside channel is not stained (though some German stain seeped in when applied to the stock's outside).

    Your picture taking ability rivals Bruce & Mikes, very nice, I like the white background...

    I agree with your comments that Mauser Oberndorf production is rather boring, they are all the same essentially, but Therein lies their charm, and there is something to be said for consistency and steadfast quality. Only MO and Brno (dot) achieved this throughout the war, or most of it, and it almost reminds you of American production methods of the time, - highly efficient, consistent and reliable.

    I am sure the German craftsman was ever present at Mauser, but with their production during the war it just looks so consistent and high quality compared to the others. Storz speaks of the craftsmen at MO and DWM in the FWW and the challenges dealing with modern production methods. I guess MO found solutions to maintaining the highest skills of the craftsman and the reality of mass production.
