    Im not a sniper expert by any stretch of the imagination, but I can say the stock is certainly snaded and we definitely need more pictures of the gun than just 3. I know you are restricted as of now but they will need close ups of things like stamps, numbered parts, machining marks and etc.

    Not trying to be sarcastic at all but that would be like trying to tell if a car is ok by only 3 shots of the exterior. What is the milage? How is the frame? Is there any body work done?

    Post the additional pics as responces to the original post

    Too early a gun to have those mounts and looks like a Russian capture X hiding under the mount. Or an original sniper and looks to be reworked.
    Looking for 10" cleaning rod, early style e/214 #91, nazi style e/26 #04

    I appreciate the replies here guys many thanks! I think I’ll pass as I don’t want a Russian capture. It’s much more of a mine field than I’d anticipated.

    Not an original sniper. Too early a rifle, fake base and scope is not German military either. Not worth your money. Pass

    Wise choice, this rifle is a Frankensteinís monster for sure. Youíll find a good one, donít worry. Keep an eye on the trader section of the forum right here! That is THE BEST place to get an honest legit rifle at a fair price.

    Agreed with everyone, the Germans would never shim a 25.4mm scope into a 26.5mm ring
