    Default bnz44 n block

    I finally cataloged my bnz44 n block from the SOS. Matching and correct except for the handguard. Steyr stopped numbering the wood, so I only need an unnumbered one to replace it. I can find no Radom (WaA77) parts on the rifle with the possible exception of the bayonet lug which has some Radom-esque glyphs. Bolt is proofed WaA623 as is the stock and all rear sight components, and the triggerguard compoents and follower are all Mauser. The rest appear to be unmarked. This is very late '44 production so I guess they were packing up Radom at the time.

    Barrel code is 'EC (bnz/1) WaA623'

    Kudos to mrfarb for pointing out to me that this was indeed correct (minus the handguard).

    Look at that gap under the ejector box.

    Yeah, he came down quite a bit. Not a steal, but a fair deal.

    I personally think this is one of the harder bnz letter blocks to find. It's the first letter block that introduced the abbreviated serial numbering style. Most would probably pass it up thinking it's restored with unnumbered parts, but it's not- it's equivalent to the late byf44 k/L block rifles. I've only had the chance to buy 1 matching n block bnz rifle in all the time I've been looking. Nice rifle, and he did whip the guy down on the price substantially. I'm going to pic sticky this one.
