    Default Late K43 matching sniper rig

    In honor of the birth of our illustrious moderator's son... I post one of my favorite rifles that I own. All matching including the mount...untouched and all original.

    Wow, that's a beauty. I've been looking for a matched-mount K43 sniper for a few years now, and they are very difficult to find in this condition. You're fortunate to have one in your collection. I'm glad to see that you've left it untouched. So many of these rifles have been hurt by improper cleaning.

    I guess no serial # on the bolt indicates an armorer's replacement?... doesn't bother me a bit on this rifle.

    Thanks for sharing it!

    Sincerely,
    Mike

    Nice......
    It does not get much better than that.

    Good to see some activity in this section. Seems like it has been a slow summer for some.

    The bolt was installed at the factory. It is not a replacement. In the d block there have been several other rifles noted as such. Just using up parts laying around.

    note, the carrier is also a earlier war type. probably rejected earlier on for some minor reason then used in the last months of production...or they just reached the bottom of the bin and it was there.
