For the unwashed here what is it about the “42” that says armorer replacement?

The Mauser factory used the "42" and "S/42" codes on parts meant for armorers kits until the byf code was introduced. Its difficult if you haven't seen one before, you could easily take the 42 as a serial, but serial numbering is a different font than the maker mark. Its one reason they switched to the 3 letter code system.

Interesting. Was the 42 a WaA? Where the "42" marked parts used on S/42 and 42 marked receivers?
