    Default A few more!

    1933 Mauser Banner DRP #62082 All matching, including the muzzle cover. OK, so it's not a true 98-k; sue me!

    S/42 1937 #1953s All matching but bolt is missing. Came from vet with a matching Erma .22 conversion kit in it.

    42 1940 #9161r All matching.

    byf 43 #27554e All matching in nearly new condition.

    byf 44 #37075k High turret sniper, gun itself is all matching, but came from the vet with a commercial scope #42038 and scope rings #46047. Since owning it, the gun has changed hands a few times and now has a wartime coded scope (cad if I remember correctly). When bought from the veteran, it also had a turret scope carrying cannister coded jvb - WaA542 - Wassel & Müller Beschlagfabrik.

    byf 45 #41015 All matching w/mixed blue & phosphate.

    Default 29696 c

    I have the 29696 C mentioned in the list. Here are the details:

    Receiver Top: Mod. 98 SVW MB
    Receiver Left: 29696 C with French Star
    Bolt Handle: 696
    Bolt Top: 696
    Safety: 696
    Sight: 696
    Floor Plate: SVW 9696
    Magazine Cover: 86
    Upper Band: 9696
    Importer: None

    I have been wondering for a long time about the conventional theory that the French made less than 30,000 Mausers. A serial number of 29696 C would seem to indicate that they produced 30,000 in march of 1946 alone. Has anyone heard a theory about this?
