    Default bolt on rifle

    The bolt has a guide rib but is not from Astrawerke.
    No Mauser revisor marks so from who?

    Thanks. Another unmarked bolt. I only have them recorded in byf45's so far. It would be interesting to see if they show up earlier and later.

    Round gas ports I'm assuming?

    It's a really nice rifle and the wood knot is my favorite part. I am currently working on a summary of the laminate production and this stock shows an important detail which plays a crucial role in the selection and processing of the wood layers, it's a perfect example picture.

    Stephan, I will see if there is a laminate code and date behind the buttplate.

    You'll find "c" marked laminated stocks on late bcd Gustloff rifles as well, stained and unstained, rough and smooth.

    Default byf45 'c' stock code

    Stock date code is 2 39 44 Br.

    39th week of 1944, puts its completion in late September 1944.

    Bruce, thank you very much and I have expected the laminate code "Br".

    It's also great we have the stock completion date, which is September 26, 1944.
