    Default bsw 1938 late 'b' block

    They don't come any nicer that this considering the code rarity.
    What is interesting is that this rifle has the later type 'squared profile' safety, and is cut for the longer 320mm cleaning rod.
    Been awhile since I posted any gun of consequence so here you go.

    Gorgeous rifle. I'm super jealous.

    Geez that's nice, incredible detail on the rifle. Floor plate release is even stamped.

    Thank you for posting these pictures. I would love to see this in person. You don’t get to see examples like this very often anymore. Very nice!

    The stock is in great condition and the bolt cutout look so crisp. I agree, they don't come any nicer and this is a truly beautiful rifle, congrats to it!

    It's nice to have an example with "squared profile" safety, BSW was the first manufacturer who used it.

    Good grief that's nice....and rare. Nicest BSW I've ever seen. Pic sticky ref.

    Great rifle with beautiful woodwork. Very interesting to me from several angles. I'm amazed at the amount of 'in house' produced components and how quickly that model would change.

    Any consideration to the C in the first position possibly being Astrawerke when they first supplied unfinished receiver blanks? Just spit-balling here. Acceptance changed quickly here '37-'40.

    It sure beats the condition of my 38 bSw and I shelled out $3k for mine.
