    That is a wonderful rifle. Gotta love that duffle repair and leaving it as is was very wise IMO. My first G43 had a cut put back together with 4 holes and 2 lengths of USGI brown boot lace to hold it together. I regret "fixing" it.

    Very nice Hambone, you haven't shown this one in the last 15 years? I haven't recorded this one before, not even a "report" of it... I thought I had all your rifles, and I almost didn't check this one when you said you had it so long.

    What does the bottom flat of the bolt have? e/77 x1, x2 or? If you have it handy of course.

    Thanks, just picked it up recently from another old collection.

    Loewe, the underside of the bolt has one e/77. I took the barrel code pics for you.

    Very nice pickup! There seems to be a few nice rifles still out there to be found.

    Life is full of fake people. Before you decide to judge them make sure you are not one of them.

    C, I know you did and I appreciate it, - you covered it all but the bolt flat acceptance, really a good pick-up for my work, I really need highly detailed rifles like this to fill in gaps in my research created by lousy reports.

    The Ruhrstahl barrel is not common on these, but are known in some of the surrounding ranges, it was a good report for the trends work done.
