    I was asked why I'm not looking for data of the other manufacturers/assemblers and that's a good question, I should actually expand my search a bit. From Sauer & Sohn and Gustloff Werke I have already a lot data, therefore I haven't asked for it.

    Berlin-Lübecker Maschinenfabrik, Erma/Feima, in addition Brünn I and Brünn II are also important. It would be great when you share your data with us.

    Duly noted! I’ll try to get pics of my ‘39 Erma when I get a chance!

    We should rename the thread to "K98k Laminate Stock Date and Supplier Codes" and make this a sticky.

    Stephan your thoughts?

    As a sticky it would be free running and always on top.

    What about G24(t), G29/40 and G33/40 data?

    Default Laminate codes

    Wolfgang, we could include those as well in the same topic - list them under the K98k section.

    Bruce, that's a good idea and maybe Craig could rename this thread and make it a sticky.

    Wolfsburg and Wolfgang, thank you very much for your support.

    I like this thread! My favorite aspect of k98ks are the stocks for some reason.
    I tried to get a photo of what's under the buttplate of my byf43 but the buttplate wouldn't budge and I didn't want to harm the rifle getting it off.

    So here's my dot 1944 serial 20597, bolt m/m but I believe the (sanded) stock matches (impossible to be sure, there are virtually no markings but it is a Czech 1944 stock at the very least based on the lack of cleaning rod provision and the magazine well shape).

    Being a late war collector, I can't help much. The only dated laminate I have is from a byf44 a block. Serial 10643a. Matching except the upper band. No P on the keel of course.

    Jeremy, every rifle is a big help, thank you very much. By the way, in Volume II is another early "a" block and the stock has the same stock date.

    This evening I went through all my byf44's that I have never had the bp off of and did not find any other examples with the date and supplier stamped under the bp. It would be very interesting to see if there are any examples before or after the a block that are stamped, hopefully more people will dig into their collections.

    I did remember my byf42 k block is stamped and will also add my byf43, even though it isn't a laminate.

    byf42 2340k matching, red glue laminate, Bo 5 19 42, no P on keel.
