I have a ce43 for your review. The metal is all matched aside from a replacement safety. Firing pin not shown but matched. The stock is 359 proofed twice as is the receiver once on the side. I see no other numbered proof on the receiver above the "ce" just the eagle. The handguard is marked with the gun serial and has some waff on the outside. The stock and handguard seem to be a perfect match in color and at the front where the stain/non stain areas match. The stock seems to be unnumbered inside but I will try some more magnification later tonight. No army "H" or other markings that I can see other than the two 359 buttplate markings. The bayonet lug looks well attached and fit very well but looks somewhat odd to have so much blue (in contrast to the typical faded Sauer bluing elsewhere). It has a proof at the front which is either 77 or 37 but I am leaning toward 77 but not totally clear. What did I buy? I know 359 stocks are known to be replacements so I thought it may be period. Let me know your thoughts at thanks in advance.
