    Default byf42 t block

    tsmgguy's new byf42 made me want to dig mine out of the safe, and while it was out I took a few pics. Standard byf42 from the t block in nice shape. Matching with the exception of the unnumbered handguard. All marked parts are FN (e/140) with the sole exception being extractor collar which is e/54.

    Barrel code is just one letter: "D E/135". Is this the blank maker, or is this an in-house Mauser barrel lot?

    Nice one. IMO, the D is mauser's barrel coding system.
    Here's the barrel on my '42 o-block

    Default Tips on photography

    Ryan your photos are excellent! Professional quality with perfect lighting and nicely blurred background. How do you achieve those results? I think quite a few of us could benefit from some advice, and any tips would be gratefully received.

    I agree BiO...early on in '42 ive seen some 41 R and 41 D dated barrels, after that it seems to be just D. Heres the bbl code on my S block.

    nice rifle ryan!

    Nothing more than a DSLR with a hot-shoe flash bounced off the ceiling. I have zero photography skills and I'm too cheap to buy the additional lighting equipment that I need, but even so they come out ok.

    Nice photos, Ryan!

    This is my rifle that you mentioned, an "l" block from 1942:

    Very nice rifle! You can tell based on the wear characteristics between the stock and handguard (in front of the rear band) that the pair has been together for a long time. If I were a betting man, I'd say it's original, or at the very least, swapped out during the war.
