About two years ago I picked up a Russian capture Kar98k Mauser from a local gun shop. There were a pile of these rifles available so I went through the stack and examined all of them. I picked out a bfy 43 (made at the Mauser Works in 1943) that was in excellent condition and had a mint bore. The bolt is a forced match, but looks like new. I spent some time today cleaning the bore and making a military sling to go on the rifle. I have an original cleaning rod and bayonet to complete the ensemble. The Russian "x" is on the receiver indicating it is a captured weapon, but Ivan left most of the German markings intact. The barrel bands and floorplate have mixed numbers which is fine.

This will go well with my byf 43 9mm P-38 that is also in mint condition. I bought the P-38 a few years ago from another gun shop. Sadly the availability of these military arms in this condition is getting hard find and prices are getting to be quite high. All the best...

Suz,
The Mauser has a caramel colored laminate military stock. The metal is perfect. I did spend some time yesterday going over the cocking piece with emery paper to remove some tool marks. Then I cold blued the cocking piece and it turned out just fine. I will try to get some pictures posted. All the best...

dhc4ever,
The link below shows various German Ordnance Codes used in WWII. The code byf indicates the Mauser Works where my rifle was made. Hope this helps. All the best...
