    Default My new AC45

    I just picked up my rifle and it is in excellent condition. It was one of a group of three rifles that was taken from the Walther factory and sent home by a vet. I am looking for the other 2 owners if anybody knows who they are. There is a capture paper with the C block rifle from the group.



    My rifle is AC45 K43 1206B single guide lug with no bolt hold open. It has stamped numbers on the receiver, bolt carrier, and bolt. It has electro penciled numbers locking lugs and firing pin carrier. It came with a aye magazine. The stock is marked with a e/waac10 and e/359.The handguard has a e/waac10 proof as well.

    The Rifle has to go with it

    1 Aye Mag original paint
    2 GCB Mags One original paint and one phosphate
    ROS 1944 pouch and SKL45 sling

    That one really turned out well . Very, very nice!

    What was the c block rifle's serial number? I know it was a guess on another thread.

    I have a gcb phosphate mag too. They are rare. Does that one have the reinforcing rib on the base plate? I think my aye phosphate does, but not my gcb.

    What's the significance of the heart on the back end?

    That's one of those little inspection stamps that the meaning is lost to time.

    I'm guessing it is 9302C but I'm not 100% certain. It was reported on the G/K43 forum the same month on Claus' list as the 2 other rifles and has the correct features.

    do you still have the capture papers ? Id love to see a close up of them.. How it was filled out and what unit the guy was with. 2 units were known to be the first to take over the walther factory.. Could have been in the train load that was leaving the factory as well..

    I don't have the capture paper the owner of the C block rifle has them. I am looking for him so I can hopefully get a photocopy. They are taped to the paper wrap in the picture of the 3 rifles.

    Would be neat to hear the history behind the capture of these three rifles if that information comes available. By the way I have seen this rifle too up close checked it out at the SOS show back March. Almost bought this piece off the collector that had it but the K98k bug has bitten me right now. Like I said very nice piece glad you got it too. I did feel bad for the guy that was selling it though. I have known him for a long time and have done business with him. He was selling most of his collection off to buy property on a lake and didn't want to take out a second mortgage can't say I blame him. But at least we know that our items we collect hold more value then stock.
