    Default Bnz. 42 Ws1 Rework

    Everything matches except the floorplate which has consistent wear with the rest of the rifle. Rifle was re-barreled with what appears to be an early Czech barrel.

    Very cool Beswick! I'm a big fan of repairs and reworks. Looks like a new barrel, floorplate, stock? Pic stickied.

    It's possible the stock was replaced, there are no other markings on it besides the exterior serial number and the Ws1 stamp. The handguard is definitely a replacement, as you can see they stamped over another serial number.

    Is it just the angle or is that sight hood extra large?

    I like the very early marked butt plate screw.:cool:

    I think your rear band is upside down?

    Ya....that "sight hood" .....that was bubba. It's a piece of really cheap (but thick) steel welded to the front sight. Rear band in that picture is upside down, bubba put it that way when he installed his awesome sight hood.

    Can you tell if the front sight base was grooved?

    ANy WaA or numberes on the base?
