    What is the Final Acceptance above the BCD Code ????? Is it also WaA37 and if so it is very likely that someone replaced the Barrel with a Gustloff Barrel not knowing that it was a Sauer Finished LSR . IMHO it was a Sporter Restoration . Best Regards

    The entire weapon is matching, the receiver is the only thing that is sauer stamped. If someone faked it, or built it, I have trouble believing that anyone would take an all matching rifle and swap out the receiver (when a gustloff BCD 4 receiver is already correct) I have never seen an all matching k98 for sale without the receiver. I've seen plenty of barreled actions missing parts, but never an all matching rifle without a receiver. Or am I mistaken in this assumption?

    Well since its been completely refinished, it could be a lot of things, it could be a restored sporter with fake numbers stamped to make everything match. Maybe the barrel was shit, and the faker decided to replace the barrel, because how are you going to maximise your price on a sniper with a crap barrel?

    Look, I am not a sniper guy, but there are guys on this board who probably know more about actual German sniper rifles than anyone out there. If this rifle has been around, seen, and not grabbed up, there is a reason.

    Now, it may be a great looking gun, and a great shooter, but the fact remains, no matter how it got in its current configuration, its not a genuine German factory built sniper....

    It is also possible that someone added fake Sauer proofs to the receiver to make it look like a Sauer rifle. Sauer LSRs bring more money then Gustloff.

    Post clear pictures of the receiver markings

    Ive heard people on here compare fake rifles to road kill.

    Letís say you find a dead possum on the road smashed flat by a car tire. Did it have missing teeth? Did it have rabies? How old was it?

    The answer: it doesnít matter anymore. Itís flat. Donít try to apply logic to a fake. ďBut no one would do that, why bother, I would never, I havenít seen...Ē

    Itís a fake or seriously altered rifle. Thatís all that matters. No amount of brainstorming or rationalizing will make it anything other than what it is: roadkill.

    You might be shocked by what someone will do to make a Fake specially when big $$$$ can be had !!!!!! Regardless of that the Rifles not correct and it has been restored , that we know . Do you know for certain that its a Thick Wall Receiver ??.
    How about pulling the Stock and post a Pic . I would also check the Receiver Wall Thickness .

    It would not surprise me if someone found a sportered LSR rifle and would restore it by killing an all matching bcd 4 rifle with 5-digit serial number. Also being fully refinished it might even have a welded receiver, to resemble a LSR rifle but not visible any more. If you buy it, you will however have a rifle with documented issues.

    Replying to another thread here. Also wanted to run this by everyone, as I got very clear photos today. I am honestly thankful that everyone is commenting in, and I am not trying to beat a dead horse, but the amount of information that's out there is often contradicted from one forum to another because of the archives being constantly accessible and never updated to reflect new findings. I would like to make it clear that I am not trying to argue with anyone, it seems that it is perceived that I am trying to argue or justify this rifle, I am trying to get answers to previous questions on other threads that are considered "answered".

    This post:

    http://www.k98kforum.com/showthread....-gustoff-werke

    Is referencing machining marks done by Gustloff Werke and Sauer underneath the thick wall receiver.

    On this rifle in question, here is the receiver, compared to what was said to be a gustloff werke receiver in the forum post from 2018.

    Also, here are updated photos of the rifle:

    Not worth your effort. No one is going to pay big money for a parts gun.

    Nothing to do with money... once again, it has to do with the information available to others.
