    Default G.98/40 jhv 43 "i" block

    Nice rifle 100% matched and has it's site hood. Notice double or over stamped eagle at receiver serial number. First one was crooked and low, second one over top was perfect. Interesting letter on top of stock. Not sure what it represents. Comments welcome. Thanks

    As it's a 3 pc stock, here are the internal numbers. Also, I missed phtographing the matching bayonet lug and that little section at the end of the bolt that has the serial number correctly electropenciled.

    It is likely an "i" block. N block may not be a possibility for any G98/40 as the highest serial numbers noted are currently in the M block. The G98/40 serial numbering did not start over with the year changes. It started in the no block with jhv 41 production and simply kept on going from year to year with the end result likely being somewhere in the M block during jhv 44. I'd be excited to see an N block rifle, but if it is ever found it will be a jhv 44 and not a jhv 43 like this example.
    WTB/WTT: (1)late E/H marked bcd stock either standard or semi-Kriegs; (2)unnumbered late MO Zf-41 stock, Kriegs or standard stock; (3)transitional late unnumbered type dot stock which uses bandspring and has bayo mount but no cleaning rod hole; (4)unnumbered byf standard stock as typically found on some byf 44 K and L block rifles; (5)unnumbered E/H bnz standard stock as typically found on bnz.4 and bnz 44 N, O, and P block rifles; (6)any bnz Kriegsmodell stock either with E/H or without

    Thanks, my mistake, it was the script letter style that threw me off.

    Default Nice,

    Photo's do this one no justice either. The stock on this rifle has great color and a really nice grain running through it.. Another good score !

    Might be an i with no period on top ???

    Pisgah is the G.98/40 script guy. I regularly get it wrong.

    The serial numbering scheme for the G.98/40's went something like this:

    jhv 41 no letter block into the d or e block

    jhv 42 somewhere in the d or e block into somewhere in the g block

    jhv 43 somewhere in the g block into somewhere in the L block

    jhv 44 somewhere in the L block into somewhere in the M block

    I'm not much of an expert on the suffix script. I just know about the overall scheme and this makes it easier to decipher the letters. I still occasionally have to look at my serial number list to make sure the suffix letters are what I think they are. At some point I'm hoping to assemble photos of all the letters but there are still a few suffix letters which I have not seen.
