    Thank you very much for your support Jeremy and all the effort with your other rifles.

    I was looking at your byf43 "f" block with walnut stock and I have to say, it's a beautiful rifle.

    I have problems to recognize the walnut supplier code. Usually I would say it's "Ha", however the shape of the first letter looks more like a "R".

    Regards,
    Stephan

    Glad to help.

    I have always assumed it was an "R" myself. It definitely doesn't look like an "H" but could maybe be a poorly struck "B"?

    Default Laminate glue letter stamp 'K'

    'K' stamp as found on S/42 1937, sn. 6040w. No date code or laminate supplier stamped either in barrel channel
    or rear of buttplate. We know from Mauser records that the use of laminated beech stocks began in Oct. 1937
    with 1,180 K98ks fitted with laminate stocks in that month.

    Stephan, here is one for you. I don't have a lot of MO rifles that are not either restorations or reworks, etc. I do have 2 byf44 with matched stocks, but they are devoid of any markings under the buttplate or on the keel.


    byf43, 5 digit serial (26111)

    Ha 1 2 43 Physically stamped, no marking on keel



    Not MO, but...ar42 (SN 1532 d, zf.41 rifle, flat buttplate laminate)

    12.2. (and nothing else is intelligible) ink stamped

    I hope this helps even a little.

    Default Original invoice from Hermann Menzel

    This document was purchased after Volume II went to print so it did not make it in.
    I will likely put it in the addendum.

    Neat letterhead document from Menzel.

    Very cool Bruce! 23 Mai but I don't get a year? 50 pfennig must be tax, no? Can someone translate? Was that 32 marks for a table perhaps?

    The invoice is from May 23, 1911 and the object is a parlor-table. The 50 Pfennig are for packaging.
