    I'm not sure I have a 'nice matching' rifle but I do have my first. Also a byf43 but an RC in laminate furniture. It's been my primary deer rifle and I love it.

    Wow, that is a dream rifle right there. I still have mine but I'm not sure if its nice lol... non matching stock and bands, obviously sanded stock, some weird grinding around the front lip that holds the handguard down, stripped buttplate screw. Still fun to shoot though. Its a byf45.

    Yep I do. Acquired it by removing it from my dad's bedroom closet. In fact I also purchased a BYF 44 mix-matcher for $200 from a gun shop in R.I. back in the early 90s. They ran an ad in a newspaper showing some pics of the 98ks in varying condition. Needed one I could actually shoot. Ran a box of Remington 8mm ammo through it. Expensive even back then compared to a box of PPU. By the way sure like that stock on your BYF. Stamps look great.

    Yep, I do . Its a matching BNZ 45. I had made the mistake of selling it but was able to buy it back.

    Yes, still have my first one, it's a bolt mismatch 1940 660 that I bought around 1968 for around $60 with a bayonet and no import makings.

    I have my first one. Purchased it at a gun show that was at the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly, Virginia back around 2014. Mine is a mismatched bnz 43.

    I don't know if it's nice but I still have my first, an all matching byf41 u block. Bought it at a pawn shop. Rough but honest gun.
