    Default Resin stock S/243 code 1937 date

    Here are photos of an authentic resin stock...some or all of the rifle had been reblued long ago, it looks great though...

    Im hoping that Simson has more info on this thing...I thought that he had documented the details of this one when I posted it on GB and other info on the real ones...this one was numbered in the stock channel or under the buttplate with a lot number or something....I cant remember which.......I hope he has it recorded....

    it was also Id'd to a vet from Speers, PA...he scratched his name and address on the butt under the buttplate!

    I cant find the darn pics of it! UGH

    Sure, I do follow these.

    There are 7 known, 3 are stocks only, 4 are reported complete (3 are known complete- one is only a report) All known complete rifles are 1937 dated and all fall within the b and c block. They seem to intermingle with regular production.

    The 1945 US Army study done also references a S243/37 (serial is unknown) so it is almost a certainty that all are 1937 Borsigwalde production. (not 1940 dated as most humpers use- because of Backbone)

    There are a couple dubious examples that I doubt are original, but there is an argument to made for them (knowledgeable collectors mention them as authentic); they have a different appearance than the cheap frauds and are better made, but not the same as originals. I think they are earlier and better made fake stocks.

    We are still a long way from having a clear picture of this variation.
