    Default Floor plate Variations:

    Have spotted 7 different "types" ... with most variability being stamped ones. Here are some observations with pics.

    My type designations might be easy to remember... type 2 has 2 spot crimps forward on the floor plate; While the type 3 has three forward crimps. Those "crimps" are either straight like the sides of an "A" or rounded like a "B"





    Mfd How ............. Designation........ Trait ........ Inspected Where?
    • Milled............Type 1 A w/ rounded front ..... --

    • Milled............Type 1 B w/ beveled front ..... Unmarked , l

    • Stamped........Type 2 A 2 straight “spots” ....... LU, E/214, unmarked

    • Stamped........Type 2 B 2 rounded “spots” ...... E/ 135

    • Stamped........ Type 3 A 3 straight “spots” ...... qnw

    • Stamped........ Type 3 B 3 rounded “spots” ...... [byf & E/ 135]

    • Stamped........Type 4 Punch marks ................. LU, qnw

    Very interesting to see the variations. Just looking at the byf 44's I have out right now and my b block has the type 2B while the h block has the 3B type. It would be interesting to see when the transition from one type to the other occurs and how much overlap there is.
    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

    What about the rough surface Steyr/bnz trigger guards and the late war phosphate BCD trigger guards? I have only photos of a Steyr trigger guard.

    • Apparently, the Type 2 was earlier than Type 3.
    • Mauser Ob. (apparently) used 'byf' on Type 3 floor plates not T-2.
    • Did 'dot' make stamped plates? I suspect their floor plates are unmarked as with this dot 1943 (??).
    • Which assemblers/ makers of K98s actually stamped out floor plates in-house?? Seems like few did.

    Very interesting thread! I had thought dot and dou got all their stamped FP's and TG's from outside sources.
