    Default Class Act: byf43 d-block

    Put a top notch Mauser back in my collection. I held out for a nice mid war example; so I've now 4 K98s from a high of 20. Oh well, life goes on.

    This is from the collection consigned to HWLRN Ohio Ordnance.

    I noticed there is no "d" block in the pic stickies....there is "c", "e", "f", "k", and "l". I think this might be a suitable example.

    Undated laminate stock, stamped matching in channel and hand guard. Brightest inside stock I've ever seen. Did the outside originally look like this? Original sling "emr42" (I think). Small of and the keel of the stock e/135 proofs

    Should I put leather conditioner on the sling to preserve it? It's dry, but not brittle.

    Full bolt serial numbers, bands (front is speed milled with dull finish), rear sight, ejector box, TG (milled), FP (milled), sear

    One e/135 proof on top of and right receiver. Front sight base is double: e/ and e/140

    Unnumbered cleaning rod, screws, bayonet lug, cross bolt, take down disc, butt plate, front sight blade, trigger

    Barrel code 43D28. My late byf43 21K no-letter-block was only marked as "R", and the stock dated 12/27/42.

    Very little wear on muzzle, crown, and bolt face.

    Not uncommon for stock channels to be very bright like that. No the outside wouldn’t have been raw and bright like the channel, but I don’t like that stock finish. That one has been re-stained.

    Also, I’d just leave the sling be, or maybe try to even the color out some. Looks like a nice sling

    Wow is that a nice rifle!! Love the gray sear and blued trigger, I’m intrigued by those. I like the “bounce” in the serial numbers in the sear too. Fantastic rifle!!

    Haha now I see that yes! Perhaps a Monday or a Friday rifle, like people joke about with cars! Still, these honest and original things lend a human touch to a sometimes cold subject.

    It looks like you got a nice example there. He was selling some really high end rifles. Congrats

    For those who track such things, how rare are these slings made in WW2? I've seen WW1 slings by them before and they were big on holsters. I have not seen K98k slings by them. Some nice info about the firm here. http://luger.gunboards.com/showthrea...nd-Mauser-HSC)

    3 weeks after my heart attack, and I’m strong enough to bring out my new, mint, and matched byf43 Mauser

    52F, but ice still on the range. Crummy ‘53 Yugo, but it’s all I had. Definitely need new glasses; very hard to see the target. A real sweet rifle.

    Nice looking rifle, and very glad to hear you are doing well! I hear you on not seeing so well. I have a hard time sighting with anything other than peep sights or a scope these days.
