    Default Dot 44 (243) Salvage

    I know this is one of Ham's favorite type of rifles. So here goes. Earlier Borsigwald receiver salvaged by dot.

    Wow, I had to go back and look at Kriegsmodell to read about this interesting variation! Very strange, yet very interesting and intriguing. I guess these rework dot44 variants don't show up often?

    That is one of my favorites. Thanks for posting it Jack! Pic stickied.
    I think that simply a regular dot build on a salvaged receiver.

    Dave, salvaged receiver run through production at Brno. I've seen them in other codes/dates, flavors, such as Vz.24 used receivers. They may occur alot in this block. Jack has a Vz.24 salvage like this too I believe.
