    Default Need help with this bnz

    Always wondered about why the left side of the reciever had a flat ground on it.
    It was obviously done prior to rolling the Mod.98 on it.

    Looks like the receiver as a whole lacks finish machining, which likely explains it.

    I'm wondering if it was a rejected reciever that was pressed into service in 44.

    Probably just poor manufacturing, should be a Gusen shop made part from the looks of the rear bridge machine marks. You could post some images from under the wood that may help decide if its reclaimed but I have seen similar flat spots in others. The Gusen shop was really terrible at making them.

    Is that another flat directly below the serial on the barrel, or just the glare? Also, the bolt handle doesn't appear to have the correct bend?

    No glare just the camera angle. Bolt bend is correct. When I get
    home I'll dessamble it and take more photos with better lighting.

    Look at how crudely the bolt handle was ground or not ground.🤔
