    Brian, Is your rear band the same,i.e. smooth? Could you post a picture of the same side as mine?

    All of the original ones known have a serial in this range, I think it starts at 269.xxx and lasts to 272.xxx somewhere (please do let me know if you have or know a Gustloff rifle with ZF41 rail that is a bit higher or lower of this range). A friend of mine got an original ZF41 mount serialized to one of these rifles in the 270.xxx serial range which I'm since then trying to buy from him, but since he only wants to trade and we couldn't find anything to trade with him it still is with him.

    To my knowledge all of the .22 ZF41 mounts had the same scope manufacturer on all of them, but would need to look up which one it was.

    Super sweet KKW ZF41. Where do you all find these things?

    Virginia is the black abyss of anything good. There is never anything decent locally.

    Could you post a picture of the left side of the rear band? Want to see how the stamped the part the sling goes through. A few months ago I saw a BSW KKW at an auction and it had a similar smooth rear band. I though it was from something else because it was basically sheet metal. How thick is the metal on yours?

    BTW that BSW Went for ~3k and it was nothing

    IMO, I suspect the smooth bSw band was not orig to the rifle... those only show on the late Gustloffs, and are Buchenwald related. I believe the OP's rifle came from a well-known dealer...

    Thanks for the reply. I think the band is the standard thickness. Looks same as earlier Gustloff KKW bands. Always searching for sniper stuff in various different sources.
