    Default bcd 4 sporter

    Hey, so I am being offered a bcd 4 k98 that had been sporterized. Just want some opinions on what I should offer. My plans are to bring it back to military configuration and shoot it as it has a very nice bore. I have a very nice 42 1940 safe queen and just want a nice range gun.

    -All metal left matches including firing pin.

    -Milled floor plate on a late war gun?

    -What is that letter block?

    Thanks for all the help guys!

    A very good rifle for a restoration and a milled floorplate is perfectly normal. To tell you the truth this is not a Gustloff assembled rifle. The inspection stamp on the top of the receiver looks like a 37 marking and the firing proof eagles look like Sauer style. So I believe this is a duel manufacturered K98k rifle. Which means Gustloff supplied Sauer the receiver and they assembled the rest of the rifle. Barrel is also a Sauer made barrel too.

    Like Jordan said milled floor plates show up late on certain manufacturers in certain blocks. It would be interesting to see more of this rifle.

    That’s a sweet Sauer and very worth putting back together, and looks pretty standard for a late Sauer.

    Agreed and check out the 'finish' on the back of the rear sight ladder. Looks like the metal was ripped off. Can anyone make out the WaA? Looks like 37 on the slider but hard for me to make out.

    That’s one beautiful rifle! That stock is gorgeous too. Best of all the metal parts look unaltered. It’s a great choice for a restoration, it will produce a Sauer assembled stock m/m that will be very nice. Thanks for sharing it!
