    K98K BCD 43 Barrel Search

    You can try Kroil and also Bore Bright from Brownell's. Myself and my buddy have gotten excellent results from barrels that looked totally trashed.

    1939 code 243 transition K98 with band spring Duffle cut

    Thanks for the heads up Alden. I jumped over quick (hoping it wasn't already sold out) before I read the rest of your post about available tomorrow morning. I submitted for 1 order of A2 (tungsten) and it said 'Your order was accepted". Which is correct?

    Unusual S/237 1937 dated some questions on this one for the experts

    That changeover from e/26 to e/214 happened later in '38 and after the S was dropped and it's code changed to just 237 IIRC, however e/26 would be correct for all the parts on your rifle.

    0,2 would indicate that it was originally produced to be an ordinance spare and sent to a depot as a replacement piece. The 0,2 is the amount the barrel is short chambered in mm. HZa is for Heereszeugamt. Here's a thread discussing them...

    Potential SS Depot Rifle?

    Yeah unfortunately they keep trying to up their game. I'm certain some/many of them use this site to try and educate themselves to produce better fakes.

    1943 Hi Power Gun Show Purchase

    Agreed. Also probably my favorite handgun ever. I currently have a BDAO that was 'alledgedlly' used by the Border Service. Very accurate and very reliable. Great ergonomics too IMHO.
