    Nice! I like them used! Is your stock e/M proofed? Im asking because I had a Norwegian cupped walnut stockset that was e/M proofed ser 985 g. Looks like Steyr had a few blocks (f & g, I personally havent seen a h) of rifles ment for the Kriegsmarine.

    It seems like in 41 Steyr had trouble with stocks.

    Just wondering if all/majority of the cupped walnuts were e/M proofed in 41 and when the order for KM rifles was completed they switched back to cupped lams that were e/H proofed. Im positive theres exceptions and a gray area of transition.

    You see flat lams, cupped lams, cupped walnuts in 41. The cupped lams and cupped walnuts ive seen with e/Ms. I personally havent seen a flat lam that was e/M proofed or a cupped walnut that was e/H proofed in 41.


    It would be interesting to have a database on the bnz41s with attention to of type of stock and whether theyre e/H or e/M to illustrate a trend.

    Reply to THunter.Yes i get the feeling that this is a marine K98 because of the N on the take down disc. Unfortunately the stock has been sanded and the proofs are gone.

    With all the recent show and tell on well used BNZ 41s i took this one out in to the mid summer sun [New Zealand] and had a good look at her.Well i see an M [marine] on the side of the sanded stock,as Thunter thought by the serial number. Alister
