    With kind regards
    The manufacturers of Single Claws, High Turrets and Long Side Rails all started using the checkered butt plates around the same time frame. This d block Single Claw does have a checkered butt plate and on the inside the same pattern is found.

    It was common for the 1944 Produced Single Claw Sniper Rifles to have Checkered Butt Plates . But the 1943 Produced Single Claw Rifles would likely all have regular/smooth type Cupped Butt Plates . I have added Pics showing both Reproduction and Original Checkered Butt Plates .

    You should be aware that there is at least 4 types or more of Reproduction Checkered Butt Plates made .

    Dave, I havenít found the smoking gun yet, but digging through the Steyr reports last year I found an undated shipping report from SDP listing a small quantity of 98ís being delivered to Mahrholdt. I tried to back date the document by studying the receiving units that are listed. One was rather helpful, the 11th Fallschirmjager Division is listed as a recipient at the same time, and they were not even formed until March of 1945. While other scenarios certainly exist, it is indeed thought provoking as to why Mahrholdt was receiving K98ís at this late date.
