    Default S/147 1936, No "Mod. 98" Matching

    A recent addition. This one does not the the "Mod. 98" on the receiver. Matching except the stacking/cleaning rod, band spring. It appears the stock may have been lightly cleaned and some light sanding to remove possible dried cosmolene. Comments always welcome.

    You hardly ever see a Sauer rifle with markings this crips what gets nearly impossible with these early rifles. Great piece, thank you for sharing it!

    Looks very nice raven! Markings on stock stand out quite well. Sure like those pre-war rifles. Thanks for sharing a nice find.

    Very nice rifle. You could make that stock look a lot better, it's in good shape even cleaned. What I would do, heat it up with a hair dryer to kinda warm the oil/cosmoline still in the stock and bring it to the top, then polish it with a cotton rag. Don't add anything to it, but just buff it up basically. You could probably do that without the hair dryer, I just thought it might make it go faster. Don't get it blistering hot or anything.

    It seems to be a rifle sold in 2012, - these are far better pictures, but between 2012 and 2019 it had some work done on the stock to bring out the markings.

    Here are a few for comparison. About 30 in all.

    Something odd in the comparisons of the stock, later I will add more pictures and see if this is the same stock or rifle. By maker-date-serial it seems the same, but the stock has different groups of dings and appearance, which can't be accounted for by staining. Chips around the takedown, the dark streak on the buttstock...

    Yeah that mineral streak would be evident for sure, interesting. I think it has something to do with the picture in the last post on it:
