    Default BYF 44, Duffle Cut, Ser No. 11682

    Gents. My pal at work just was going through his deceased fathers gun safe and found an "old beat up rifle" (his words) for me to ID. He brought this to work today, and what a find it is.

    Numbers matching, no import mark, duffle cut. Pretty cool to find this after many years not even knowing what it was or when his dad picked it up. This is proof that they are still out there waiting to be discovered.

    The upper hand guard is cracked in half, and I had to hold it together to take a pic of the serial number inside.

    Enjoy.

    No letter blocks in 1944 should have full SN on FP & Tg? Looks like a nice rifle tho.

    If it had milled tg/fp it would have probably had full serial, however if they have the stamped parts like this there is less surface to put the numbers on. this one is fine, textbook example. Nice byf44. !!

    A few more pics.

    I also found another acceptance stamp under the stock about five inches away from the stamp by the trigger guard. Very hard to see but it's there.

    Thanks for the clarification. Everything else looked good. That is a nice find.

    Very nice rifle! I really love the looks of white blue stocks, just wish they had the durability.

    Yep, nice example. A really nice no letter.

    I would be interested in the barrel code and bolt acceptance pics if you have them.

    A very nice example. I also may have a spare sight hood for your friend I'll have to check.
