    Default G.29/40 660 1940 (pics)

    It's taken quite awhile, but I finally found a nice, matching, unmessed with G.29/40 siderail marked. This one turned up in a pawnshop in Texas for $375. It is completely untouched, matched to the screws, never in collector hands. The bayonet lug had been removed, had the front band stuck halfway on it. When I got it I was pleasantly surprised to find that the lug pin had been placed back in the lug but the lug itself never reinstalled. It is my understanding that the lug removed reduces the length of the stock sufficience for mailing, like a dufflecut but without the permanent damage. More pics after I've cleaned off the cobwebs and air rust.

    Very nice, Craig. Lucky the lug managed to stay with the rifle.

    There is almost no difference, the ebox is a little different, the siderail designation, the recoil shoulder is different but not much else. These are just Polish receivers sent to Steyr and built as Kar98k. The really neat ones are the ones still with Polish crests, but as everyone says, these are not common rifles in original-matching condition. Worse, most that are "original" saw a lot of action, and have significant wear, so really nice original-matching is really hard to find. Expensive too.
