    Default BNZ 45 question

    I have a BNZ 45 in the 7xxx Q block
    stock looks like walnut (not laminated) but no take down ring and no Eagle H on the stock
    it has the hole in the butplate for takedown also has the D7 mark which i'm told camp guns have
    is it possible this could be correct? without an eagle H
    no serial number on receiver but on barrel
    has bayonet lug

    thanks - B

    No, this could not be a correct stock for a bnz45. Walnut stocks are very rare until about the S block - there are a scant few in the "r" block, but usually guns that looks later. The configuration sounds like postwar type to me. And no, "D7" is not any camp marking I have ever heard of, not sure where that came from.

    Sorry, I'm a little confused.

    is there a BNZ Q block in post war guns then?

    Gun is not post war, the stock on your rifle sounds like it is. V7 marks are on metal, not wood.

    Default V7

    yes, the V7 is in the metal.
    is that a camp mark?

    Well, itís a marking seen on receivers made by Steyr at Gusen. Nearly all bnz parts were made at Gusen after September 1944, so it doesnít add to the value or rarity.

    Default thanks

    The V7 is on most of the later 1944 and later
    BNZs then. Sorry, i was told it was typical to the
    large BNZ44s and such.
    we are always learning.\

    You mostly see them on bnz44 marked receivers, but you also can find them on some bnz45 marked ones. I had one with a rune marked barrel once.

    Default V7 marks

    You mostly see them on bnz44 marked receivers,

    You mean V7 in an oval on the large size BNZ 44 type receivers?

    but you also can find them on some bnz45 marked ones. I had one with a rune marked barrel once.

    I didn't know there were BNZ45 SS camp guns.
    could this be one?Some collectors look of the v7 marks and
    defining a camp gun but they also
    seems to think it didn't;t exist on 45 dated guns.

    it might explain the out of sequence stock configuration.

    thanks so much for all your help on this.
    Sorry if Im being ignorant but you don't see that many
    45 german dated guns.
