    ;) I thought those were just scratches or dings. Going back and looking at it, I see it now, which is better depicted in WaA's post. Sorry for missing it. That is a difficult variant subcontracted part to find!

    Yeah, I didn't have a better pic. These show up in this range which is why I asked if your rifle had it.

    Default DUV markings

    Hello,
    I have recently aquired a DUV, cannot find any markings on it except for the Waffenampts on receiver top/side, barrel and all numbers matching. Is there a lack of markings on DUV? Also, the sporterized stock has matching numbers in channel. Lack of pictures, but all numbers match on it, without waffenampts.

    duv/42 (actually all BLM's) are some of the most consistent 98k made, characteristics are remarkably progressive and consistent, with few deviations within ranges. As changes occur, these characteristic are pretty much set.

    What your rifle should have depends on the suffix of your rifle, but your barrel appears to be an FN barrel, which is usually not a characteristic before the f-block of 1942. By far most are known in the f-block also, but a few linger on after. Assuming your rifle is an f-block, or after, it should have very few markings.
