    Default X block Sauer 44, the last of them.

    Just got this in the mail this week. It came in surprisingly fast. Beautiful condition throughout. Made up of mostly armourer parts. Pretty crude. The shank of the barrel was obliterated by a machine. You can see the poor machining, looks like it slipped during installation as well. I can see the ghost of a straight script e after the script ce, wonder if this is part of a previous barrel code, or the lot info which is missing......only data ce e/37 e/37 Also the receiver has a e/1 in an odd location. This is an oddity I was happy to add to my collection as even though it is December 44 or early 45 assembled, and utilizes a kriegsmodell trigger guard, it is fully numbered like a mid or early 44 rifle. Also has a couple salvaged imperial parts.

    The imperial recoil lug is interesting. I wonder how that got into the system.

    There is a pattern of salvaged parts showing up at some makers. My bnz45 T block has a banner rifle sight ramp. Haha

    Quite a few late MO rifles have Imperial sears on them. It is interesting how a lot of Imperial parts ended up on these late builds.
