    Default another walnut bnz45

    Picked this one up recently from Bruce, nice late bnz45 with walnut stock. I've seen a lot of these now with the top acceptance and no Eagle H and/or no top acceptance and Eagle H stock. It's hard to believe that this is all due to soldiers switching stocks, but it makes one batty trying to decide if these were picked up in the factory like that... which is why I am posting this fairly common gun. It looks pretty much out of the closet, I didn't even take it apart. Typical walnut stock/laminate handguard, all phosphate rifle. I really like the knots this walnut stock has in it. You just gotta love late bnz45's.

    perhaps it just represents the absolute panic / confusion, and the rush to complete weapons, that marked the last weeks of the war. The pressure on the workers must have been immense.

    I hate you......lol. I really want one of those. I doubt there is a single one of those in Canada, all brought home by US soldiers, now all at your house in Texas. HAHA

    Nice rifle for sure.

    There were a half dozen nice bnz45 rifles for sale at the last Show of Shows, some were really nice minty guns. I agree, I think all of these came back to the US from GI's!

    Man do I love those bnz 45's! Definitely near the top of my want list.

    Very nice mrfarb! That knot in the wrist area is just awesome!

    In general, what was the pricing?

    The prices on the tables were in the 2k range for walnut guns, 16-1800 for good condition guns. I'm not sure what the selling prices were but they didn't move really fast- most lasted until Saturday afternoon from what I saw. I think a minty walnut T block for $2500 was the most expensive. One guy bought a mint laminate for 1k from a walk in.
