    Default BCD4 Phosphate 5 Digit SN

    Picked up here on the trader. There are pics in an older thread but here are some more detailed shots of this beauty.

    I like the contrast between the phosphate and those blued parts. Nice unsanded stock with what looks like battle damage? Probably never be able to confirm that but it's appearance certainly suggests that. No marks on the bolt root either? Congrats!

    Agree! Stock dings look like some repeated wear points from being jounced around in a vehicle perhaps, but as you said, no way to know anything for certain.

    Cool

    This is one of those cases where the dings give the rifle alot of character. Probably a combination of combat use and wear, battle damage and/or surrender pile damage.
    I love it! Thanks for sharing.

    Very nice indeed. Crisp photography. It appears that either a filter or "color correction" has stripped the first 21 photos of the of the beautiful golden hues I love to see in phosphate finished Gustloffs.
