    Very nice. First one I've seen with a modified bayonet lug (more common on the 89). A K98k bayo should fit it.

    Being it is modified is it worth buying a non modified? Secondly will Belgian Bayonet fit on modified?

    I don't see the need to have a non-modded one if you have this one. Lug will still mount a Belgian bayo, Germans just added a second notch.

    Glad I asked. Guy bid me up by bidding $125 then retracted his bid making me high bidder at $95 so I did the same. Was going to bid again, but since there is no reason to I won't.

    Hey Capt14k- I bought the second Belgian that came from the same seller about a week after yours sold. The numbers are scrubbed on my bolt, but I think the crest is nicer on mine... want to trade???

    Congrats. I saw the second one as well. You still got it at a good price.

    The stock is marked "CMB" Company Maritime Belge, a shipping company.

    Peter, I think that CMB is the inspector's initials?

    I learn something every day.
    Thanks!


    In the past I saw this type of rifle which were used in the Belgian merchant navy, that is why I thought this was one too.
