    Default How did I do with g41w?

    Hey all, so I was at a gunshow yesterday and came across a guy I usually see at shows. I was telling him how I had been looking for a g41, and he said he knew someone at the show selling one. I ended up doing a partial trade for it, a refurbed svt40 and a very reasonable amount of cash. I have not stripped it down yet, but every external number is matching and the stock appears to be unsanded. The finish is rough, but for what I paid it does not bother me at all.
    Let me know what you think.

    It's not no piece with 98% bluing left but it looks 100% original to me. You can tell this rifle has had service history and it was used in the field. And better yet it's still all matching being a combat warhorse. Who ever used it in the field probably kept the action and barrel cleaned the best he could. And the outside wear was due to the conditions of war and the climate.

    Only thing you need now is a sight hood which are scarce for these rifles. I do know a gentleman that sets up at the OGCA shows who does have accessories for these rifles as well as replacement parts if you ever need them.

    But the main thing to remember is if your happy with your purchase and it sounds like you!

    I like it! Probably a victim of poor storage post-war but still a complete appears all matching example. I had ac42 1179a that was in very similar condition. Still one of my favs in my collection, plus I didn't mind shooting it.

    Thanks guys, I am happy with it. Warrior if you can find me a correct sight hood I would be very grateful!
    The seller told me he shot it last week, but I am pretty sure he never changed the springs or anything, which I will do if I put a couple rounds through it. Does anyone have a good handload for these? I would guess you would want it to be very mild...

    Thanks,
    Sam
