    Sure it does!

    Had it for awhile now, and 1939 S&S isn't a heavily reported mfg/date either!

    Hope this helps to add to the database …

    Welcome to the forum. Looks like it might be one of the so called "Romanian Capture" rifles that are typically mostly matching, save bolt, and pinged. Thanks for posting.

    I was wondering about that. My others are Rusian captures and they don't look like this one.

    I'm glad to have found the forum. I found it based on a note in my Kreigsmodell book. I really like it. I don't have any pristine or beautiful or valuable rifles but I have quite a few (about 20) rifles from Germany. Most are late 19th century or WWII period.

    After reading BOTW I noticed they have one that is only a few hundred earlier in the same steries. Although it is earlier it has a stamped (and therefore later style) trigger guard. Mine is milled. What does your have? Is it earlier or later in the series?
