    Great rifle and history. The pics will show condition of rifle as you found it.The tractor grease has probably done about all it could do over the years to protect the metal. It looks like it has hardened and maybe falling off when handled. I would remove it. The rifle is in no danger of the elements ( as much) and in the hands of care. No more screws removed now. Thanks for posting.

    Very cool and interesting. I have 3463 q that was referenced before. Crazy to think the rifles being 200 apart and how they ended up around the world. Great find.

    Gently clean and oil the metal. I wouldn’t touch the wood or the sling. What are people’s thoughts on the sling? Was it born a sling or was it taken from another piece of equipment and pressed into service as a sling? I think it is cool either way.

    My large font bnz44 q block KM has top final on receiver.

    2596q (Mine) has TF
    2599q no TF
    3463q no TF
    3807q has TF
    You kinda missed my point- the highest seen without the final would be the point it returned. Earlier rifles with the top final arenít a starting point, but represent earlier rifles that were in process or early rejects that were in repair. The latest serial without the top final would indicate ďaboutĒ where it started in production.

    I really like this rifle and since it hasn't been cleaned I would just leave it as is, unless your going to shoot it.
