    Default JP Sauer ce43 - Battlefied casualty

    This came out of my local shop today. All matched as picked up. Evident blood staining
    on the stock with numerous dried tracks. With this much spattering, metal is in exc. shape.
    I have seen some of these rifles with bad metal pitting. Most of the affected area is on the handguard and left side with nearly the complete right side of the stock untouched.

    Also, the rear sling band was mounted with the sling loop on the right side. Not the first
    instance of this method of mounting of the rear band that I have seen.

    Ed: Changed title in deference to this gun, its past and its previous owner

    Very interesting rifle, kind of a grim reminder of the actual use of the things we collect.

    WOW!! I missed this one until a new thread brought it back. No question that rifle was in some serious stuff. Bruce what is in the take down disk?

    I just picked up a rifle that has a few similarities to this but no running, I'll bring it to the SOS and let you have a look.

    All 1943-assembled Kar.98k's have internally numbered stocks and handguards. I hate to use strong words like all or none, but I can't think of any exception.
    WTB/WTT: (1)late E/H marked bcd stock either standard or semi-Kriegs; (2)unnumbered late MO Zf-41 stock, Kriegs or standard stock; (3)transitional late unnumbered type dot stock which uses bandspring and has bayo mount but no cleaning rod hole; (4)unnumbered byf standard stock as typically found on some byf 44 K and L block rifles; (5)unnumbered E/H bnz standard stock as typically found on bnz.4 and bnz 44 N, O, and P block rifles; (6)any bnz Kriegsmodell stock either with E/H or without
