    Default S/42 laminated

    Hey pzjgr - post the pics - more is better! Also I will be keeping track of laminated serials in 1937 for the
    book, so bring it on. Also sorry for the crappy pics - will update with better images as time permits.

    Well, Mike has the full data sheet on the rifle, I can tell you it is 818 y. Lam stock and handguard, both are well marked, and numbered in the channel, and the keel of the butt, so I know it is a righteous early lam stock, and not a replacement...I will get pics when I can and post them...

    Well, I finally dug the "y" block 1937 S/42 out of the closet, and got some pics...its an all matching but the bolt (bummer) gun with a red glue lam stock. Not in as nice of shape as Bruce's but I like it because it's a very late 37 with the laminated stock. The stock is numbered both on the keel and in the channel. The lam handguard is also numbered in the channel....

    Default S/42 1937 Laminated

    Mauser started working on plywood stocks as early as 1935. It took them 2 years to get all the wrinkles
    out. More data would help pin down when these laminated stocks started to appear in 1937.
    Regardless of bolt MM, a tough example to find.

    Do you guys think using the lams was more or less sporadic, or was there a fairly hard switch?

    Bruce:
    I have a JP Sauer 1937 with a "p" suffix that has
    a early mathcing laminate stock.
