    Are you thinking it was added wartime or post war?

    Were there a bunch of these armorer stocks somewhere?

    Ill check for a date stamp under the buttplate and snap pics of the red pencil writing.

    I really feel like this one is period correct - later war imo.

    I agree an armouers bolt would be perfect for this one.

    Would be interested to see if there and how late.
    I popped the buttplate off tonight and found that the buttplate was inkstamped 'jvd'

    The stock was marked 'Br' deep and crisp. With a date of '3 28 44'

    Without being numbered I'm not sure you could ever know for sure if it's period, no? There were a number of unused armorers stocks available after the war, I've owned this exact stock in unfinished state one an s/147 1936 that was completely matched metal.

    It fits the rifle well, who knows when it was put on like others have said. Could have been last week or 75 years ago. In any case, that stock is worth some coin!

    Well, original to the re-work stock or not, its a really cool piece, and a great addition to a collection, I love the 98k modified Gew's you just don't see that many.

    The only RC I ever kick myself for not buying was a 98k converted Gew...

    I'd be happy to own it!

    Just getting into k98's and all the different markings, proofs and fonts...was going to ask why your great conversion has the same font on the barrel has the receiver..then dumb me I just realized...its the same barrel, just cut down. So would it be safe to assume that new k98 barrels fitted to the Gew receiver would have a different font to Gew receiver, and that font would be dependent on where the refit took place.
