    Default Bcd4 Phosphate

    This is the last German rifle I picked up from Amoskeag. The bolt parts are matching, stock properly marked with a “C” and several parts are marked with a “1”. Floorplate, follower and extractor are all blued but most of the other parts are phosphate. I believe this one was actually made in 1945 despite the receiver date, is this the case?

    Stunning.. I saw that in the catalog/ Much better in your photos. Love the factory stain on this one and even dark phosphate.. Most are very thin. CXM barrel also.. Id say you did well..

    Yes, this was probably early 45 production. Nice rifle for sure.

    Yeah that's a nice one. Really glad to see unmolested rifles show up.

    That guy had a good eye for original guns and didn’t make the mistake of the 80’s which is to clean stocks and such. Many older collections are full of cleaned guns. They aren’t bad, just not the flavor of today. I hope the ones that sold will stay that way, but alas you know they won’t. Some people just can’t leave well enough alone.

    That is a beautiful example. It’s nice to see that original unmolested examples are still out there. Great rifle.
