    Default Dual manufacture "f" block.

    It has been pretty quite on this part of the forum lately. I thought this example would be a nice addition to the "Highest 45 QVE" thread started by Jack944.

    This example utilizes an ac45 marked receiver that was sent to Berlin Lubecker from Walther in the last days of the war, prior to their capture by US forces. Berlin Lubecker basically placed the receivers (and probably other parts too) into the existing production line.

    It appears that the Walther receivers were in a semi-finished "raw" state and any final machining work/finishing was complete at Berlin Lubecker. This receiver was originally a dual guide lug example and it has had the right lug machined off, since Berlin Lubecker did not have (maybe not received any from Walther?) correct bolts to complete this type of receiver. The stock, while it does have the "WaA214" proofs on the right side of the stock, is a typical forward recoil lug type used exclusively by Walter....obviously came over with the receivers.

    Very interesting example of a late war weapon.

    Incredible piece! Neat to see the BLM sn font on an AC45 receiver. Is there any 359 proofs on the receiver or barrel? Is the receiver the only AC part on this rifle?

    Default Ultra -Rare

    Good observation on the stock lug and bolt guide. Way to kick this forum up a notch. Rare with condition... a grand slam. I see yours is a couple hundred rifles before mine(last SN QVE) and it still has the two side stock proofs.

    Also note the rear sight slide is uncheckered.

    this receiver either had a defect or E359 but BLM welded up the RHS of the rec and re-machined it, you can see a thick weld bead the length of the receiver!!! what a fantastic late war example a little bit of everything!!!

    Vaughn,

    Good observation. When I get a chance, I will have to take it apart on see. Never noticed that, it does look like something "odd" happened there.
