    I need to go out and get a real camera, had one long ago before smart phones but its obsolete and missing...

    When I do get hooked up with better tech, I'd like to dig into these as well.

    Its a complete rifle, mismatched bolt and force matched wood, the rest actually does match. Sight, bands (front has stacking hook, rear is 98M variety but both matching), buttplate, receiver screws and triggerguard/floorplate.

    Thank you for the barrel pictures and sweet Kar98b Simson rifles!

    What is the rear sight sleeve acceptance? Too blurry to read, Mauser/DWM made them very early as did Simson.

    I don't suppose the forced matched stock comes with an ordnance depot marking?

    The 1924 with a serial that high is unexpected, very deep into 1925 serial ranges... worthy of its own thread when you get a camera that can do it justice. Looks like a re-barrel, I don't suppose you know the barrel code? The FP looks early, surprisingly early for a 1924 (a 1924 wouldn't have a FP next to the serial, not that style either), but I wonder how late... the BC would help date the barrel if you ever take it apart (RS of course is relevant, I am sure its been upgraded later)
