    Default G29o 660 1939 Luftwaffe matching but...

    Cut in half! Itís one of those terrible d/cís and an even worse repair, but what are you gonna do. Popped up on broker a few days ago. Everything matches except the missing bayonet lug! Iím going to call the shop Monday to see if I can get any background info on this rifle, in the meantime does anyone have a bayonet lug by chance?? First of these Iíve had, and I didnít know they had a different follower than a regular 98. Pretty interesting rifle and Iím really liking it even with the issues.

    Also, is that an original sling loop end that came with it? It was on a 1903 sling when it came in.

    For $379 I can't blame you! If anyone can save this rare rifle its you Clay.

    I wish you luck in your project. I'll be on the lookout for parts for you at the next OGCA show if you need any.

    You stole the thing. Too bad about the horrific duffle cut/fix. Yes it is an original sling loop and nearly impossible to find if missing.

    Yes steal it you did! Peter calling that a 'fix' is a pretty liberal interpretation of the word. It will be interesting to see if it can be made better looking and how much. Good luck with it!

    The real question is why some yo-yo would think that's a good place for a duffle cut!
