    Default Another 660-1940, m block

    Good combat used rifle. Worn but not tired. Evident brush or cleaning marks around disks and radius around routes for recoil lug.
    I have seen this before and an leaning toward field done as in the cleaning around the takedown disk evident in over 50% of
    my early rifles.

    Floorplate assembly replaced in field with armorers parts.

    Otherwise a good example of Steyr 1940 production. Also note the large 'E/H' Army acceptance stamp as opposed to the
    typical smaller 'E/H' usually found on Steyr produced rifles.

    Damn nice rifle considering the selling price of the last one.....and I'd rather have this one than the other.

    The 3s on my 660/1940 also bounce around from rounded tops to straight tops. The barrel, receiver, trigger guard, and floor plate are all rounded 3s and the rest of the rifle has the straight top 3s.

    Can you post the barrel code?
    Any interest in a 1939?

    Very nice one! These early Steyrs are cool....I have a 1939 "a" block, well used, it has almost no finish left...it is a non-import marked bolt m/m...4 E/623's on the RR side too...

    Great rifle Bruce, Thanks for sharing. This is just the way I like them.

    Where is the pics of the floorplate?
