    Default bnz45 r block odd size laminate

    Picked this up from Dave Roberts, sort of. I basically made him sell it to me since he doesn't collect 45 dated stuff and I do. He found this at a Cabela's (same place as the K date that sold from there). I had someone email me about it a few weeks before Dave found it and he said it had sold, but Dave bought it a week after that guy emailed me last so not sure if they just pulled it from the shelves? I'm lucky to have gotten it!

    I've had a restoration as my example of odd size laminate, they are pretty hard to find in collectible condition (meaning not sanded or dicked with). This one fits the bill, basically a new condition gun. The stock has one place above the bolt where its missing some wood which really seems to exemplify they weakness of the thick section of wood in the laminate. This one still has the well finished gas shield (some r blocks have the rough one). No phosphate at all on this rifle which is another trait you often see on r block bnz45's. Here are a few photos for reference.

    Very nice! The bolt knob has a cool spiral machining to it. I had an odd size stock and I can see why they probably weren't used much, many spots of chipping and delamed wood, but it does make for a cool oddity.

    Another nice one Mike! I really like the odd size laminate wood. An interesting variation for sure.

    I know, right? Cabela's- the perfect place for your heirs to dump your collection.

    Nice to see some late war action! This is a really beautiful odd-odd size with a lot going for it. Really early - mike is it the earliest pinstripe you've seen? Mine are in the S block and that seems more typical I think this is the only R I've seen. And let's not forget there's not a lot of R blocks around to start with. agree the earlier all blue bnz 45's kinda stand out, plus you gotta love the earlier TG with the lock screw holes left unused. I'm sure they're untapped too. The wood just has that great, completely untouched look. Really nice!
