    Default Diamond in the ruff found at allentown "byf45" full kriegs

    I finally finished this one..It was on a table at the show. Looked horrible. It was stained a red color..Metal looked crappy.. I was able to see through the exterior to see a 95% rifle and an un sanded stock with clear proofs.. So now we have a super nice no letter block byf45 full kriegs modell.. Enjoy. I noticed where the sling keeper area was routed out you can see the rounded out spots where they went to deep. The waa135 was clear in the rough area on the heel of the stock..

    Very nice save. I'm also curious how you removed the stain so effectively.

    Looks great! I haven't seen anything worth a second look at a gun show in years. Very nice find. Very nice example.

    Default Byf45

    I was lucky the stain was a modern minwax type I assume. I whiped right off with laqure thinner. Actually 4 treatments at four different times. Then I let the stock bake out in the sun to bleach it a bit. I was going to steam it to raise the grain but felt it wasnt nessisary. I added a little age to the wood. "secret process".. I'm happy with the way it came out..

    Default Nope

    Sorry, I dont. I was going to but, got to worked up about getting it apart and finished..Titan saw it and asked me if it was the same rifle. As I replied yes!! It really didnt look near this nice..I was able to work a trade and some $$ for this one..Got rid of a real stinker too He knew what he was getting he was no newbie.. For those who would question my morals..

    Default safety

    This is the bolt I posted earlier. I forgot to picture the saftey. E/37 saure supplied blued.
    The rest of the bolt appears to be mauser oberndorf produced. No waffens just the entwined "RW" on all the parts. All phosphate less the Plumb extractor.. A reaction to either phosphate or blue.
