    Those bolts looks odd with all parts five digits..

    They do look funny with the fifth digit. Actually not Mauser's first experience as they used up to five with the Portuguese contract rifles.

    I also have no letter Byf 44 block. The rifle is in absolutely original condition, barrel factory condition. Leaving the German army in our territory. Since the war in storage and well conserved, registered on the weapons amnesty. Excuse for google translator, my English is bad.

This one seems to have all the same things as yours Bob though not near as nice. This one saw some serious action toward the end of the war it seems. Oddly enough it came with an FN bolt with the e/140 and MI on the rear lug. Fitting enough to be mated with this byf 44. Schrapnel is very deep into the handguard, upon removal you can see the metal. One photo of the exterior near the upper band you can see a fleck of steel glinting there. Great bore and condition otherwise... just poor finish. On the wrist of mine there is a "tiny" e/135 above and to the left of the larger e/135. Never had noticed but mine has the tiny little C10 mark on the handguard as well. ohh.. and I admit.. it was me... I put that nasty "enhancement" white crayon stuff on it all those years ago but wish I had not.

    mow.
    Appears that Mow's example has an unnumbered TG and floor plate, which I would expect to be numbered from the factory for a byf 44 no letter.....
