    HM, post the link to that other 33/40 discussion if you would.

    Not too much commentary but I appreciate that these get found and discussed. http://ww2weaponsforum.com/showthrea...s-In-The-Stock

    Someone out there focuses on bolt mismatch G33/40 rifles and renumbers bolts, they do a damn good job of it. It's really hard to spot some of them, it's easy whey they leave off the suffix as I don't think they have all of the right ones. The odd finish mismatch in that area is a big clue as well, along with the font. The font is very close though, some even have the correct looking curvature. It's a jungle out there.

    If someone would follow sellers moving them you may find some correlation, like a certain state or seller. Never felt the need to do that, but these 33/40 hump jobs are really common it seems.

    The 33/40 humpjobs use common fonts and techniques. Someone has worked on how to buff out the old serial around the bolt handle contour and add the new numbers and touch up heat blue over that. Once you've seen this work you can spot it almost immediately. For someone not familiar with original numbering and/or not familiar with this humping they could get burned in a poorly lit funshow or with less than ideal pics. The pics provided in the OP show it. A scumbag peddling a fake would not show good pics of this.

    If the OP rifle is at auction or for sale the link should be posted.

    I didn't want to say it first since possibly that guy is a lurker here. I thought that might have been the first thing that tipped you off. They are very tough to spot when you're not exactly sure what right looks like.

    Added to Turd Alert section.
    http://www.k98kforum.com/showthread....40-Turd-Alerts

    These turds are immortalized by their serial numbers, so we'll be able to track this turd if it washes up on the beach somewhere else.

    Great work Ham! Now here's the rub as I see it. It ran up pretty fast by the time it first made it to Dave's site. Then the chatter started there and then here and pretty quickly the bids froze. I wonder how the 'buyer' made out? $1834. + whatever.

    HM, you can post the auction link. Live auctions are fine if it is exposing humping and wanking.
