    I love it- just the right amount of wear and honest use. Beautiful example for sure. I really like that sling marking too.

    I agree, and I would go further to say that in original-matching condition it is the hardest "1942" dated 98k to find. Even tougher if you exclude the so-called dual codes (bcd/ar) finished by MB in 1942, which actually represent half of MB 1942 production in trends work.

    The ar/42 also has a very large rc rate in trends work.

    Next time you take the rifle apart, jot down the barrel code, as MB ar/41 & ar/42 are two of the least reported year/code.
