    Wow, that's a cool rifle. Actually finished by Mauser Oberndorf. Can you post photos of barrel code? From that we can tell what year it was made.

    That is pretty neat! Not a common rifle by any means.

    Looking forward to more pics!

    Was ERMA making receivers for J.P. Sauer & Sohn starting in '43 or earlier? Nice rifle, indeed.

    See how rough that receiver is? And deep the ce43 markings are? Now compare to a typical ce43 assembled by Sauer and you see why the markings are sometimes so weak. Sauer polished the roughness out of the receivers during production. This one is about as rough as any I've seen on other Mauser "dual codes".

    That's a cool rifle! The receiver is really neat, too bad there aren't more unpolished sauers.
    Looking for 10" cleaning rod, early style e/214 #91, nazi style e/26 #04

    How about a shot of the right receiver side, the WaA's there may tell some of the story...
