    Wow, impressive rifle. It's a difficult year (1942) to find in matching original condition. Good find.

    Congrats on the find! Any markings on the stock?

    Agreed. I see the machine work and finish is already going down at Steyr. Some pictures of the wood stamps when you get a chance perhaps?

    The first photo has what looks like a post war VOPO mark.

    That's a typical marking in wartime Steyr barrels, some kind of inspection mark, it isn't VOPO.

    Very nice rifle. 1942 dated rifles are tough to find (especially for Russian stuff). Thanks for sharing.

    Very nice! I have 4484 C! Interesting that you have speed milled bands and mine has H-bands considering they are only ~2200 rifles apart. What type of stock does yours have?
