    Default Amoskeag Win: T-Block bnz45

    Full Kriegsmodell and phosphate finish. Parts are unnumbered save barrel and bolt components less safety. Butt plate is not drilled for the take-down hole that is present in the stock. The stock is dated, I think, 16.2.45, which translates to April 9, 1945. Get 'em out the door - sloppy welds, and rough parts - see the bolt shroud and the bolt knob. Band screws had a loose fit, so I shimmed them with slices of a wooden match stick. This rifle has the firing proof, final acceptance, and no "H" on the stock. Bore is pristine. I added an original muzzle cap and sling. No oil anywhere inside, so a little bit of Kroil on the screws and bolt, a wipe of the bore with a snake, and a wipe of the stock. Beautiful late war piece.

    Hey Buddy, is that an E/4 in your pocket?

    That is a nice, late, crusty build. I am thinking it wore a grenade launcher at one time in the war. The fore end between the bands has that odd "shadow" marking. My son liked how rough it was compared to earlier rifles.

    Not much time for a grenade launcher; about three weeks or less to go by the stock date.

    I told my son that too. Awful late to have one on it, but that marking is unique.

    That's one accessory I don't have. Maybe it's time to look for one.

    Maybe that's why the band screws didn't have much 'bite' in the wood; the shock stripped the wood.

    Oh, no I LIKE matched rifles. Trouble is affording them. I have four no excuses pieces, a couple with one or two mismatched parts, eight bolt MMs, two RCs...

    I don't see what you are referring to for grenade launder use, it certainly never left the plant.

    Odd band size stain on the fire end though.

    Nice rifle overall. I always enjoy a bnz45. I have T block 3296, so not too far off.

    Glad you got something.. I was going to go but, decided not to... I went to the last three I think ?

    Anyway that stock looks mighty nice for a super late steyr.. I guess anything is possible... I did one phone bid and got skunked.
