    Default Dual Code bcd / bnz 4 from the attic

    Luck has striked again since just recently in Styria/Austria a K98k was found on an attic. I was fortunate to had been put aware of it quite soon, helped the owner find out some more of its history (what dual codes are, etc.). When being asked on the value I gave him my estimate and told him if he was looking to sell it, I'd be interested. And he was looking to sell it - so I took the chance and bought it! Took it some time to arrive (being shipped), but I'm very pleased.

    While it may not be as nice as my other bcd / bnz 4 dual code (which is NOS condition, see http://www.k98kforum.com/showthread....ng-factory-new ), it still is a very nice and absolutely untouched piece which had seen good storage over the last decades. It still carries the original Steyr sight hood too, plus it is in the correct serial range for the dual code rifles too. And the serial of this rifle is quite easy to remember!

    A very interesting detail is the cocking piece - it is marked with a circled Z on bottom which reminds me of a Czech (or Serbian?) connection, but maybe the local experts can help me.

    And yes, I know it has some rust and dirt on it I could had cleaned off prior to taking these pictures. But I decided to show it the way I have received it and how it had spent the last 70 years.

    The cocking piece is definitely from a VZ24 - is it numbered to match? You have to love all matching dual codes no matter what!

    Really nice rifle. I've got to ask, how do you take such sharp pictures without any background?
