Default BNZ 42 "C-block"

Just acquired a 44XXC-block Steyr BNZ42, bolt mismatch (bolt is JP Sauer). Sadly, the stock has been sanded and a clear-coat applied. Most of the parts have E/77 waffenamts and the stock has a dot marking.




Interestingly, neither the floor plate nor magazine have any inspection marks. This seems typical as the Data Sheet on pg 642 of Volume 2b (BNZ42 9516c) has neither, only the serials. It was mentioned that inspections were skipped in order to increase Steyr's output, as it seems that they produced the least K98ks of the contractors.

Floorplate is also unnumbered and uninspected (similar to 9516c)

Lucky Charms?



Upside down numbering on the rear band

Similar to 9516c, the bands are numbered but weren't inspected.

Front site doesn't have any serials or waffens. Are these more lucky charms?

DOT marking on the stock.

A "2" in the sling cutout slot. Any idea what this means?

Where the stock inspections could have potentially been. Take down disk has no inspection marks. Recoil lug has a small E/77. Steyr bolt cutout is present.

BRG buttplate.

Bayo lug inspection

More lucky charms

Nice honest K98. Definitely a keeper.

Looks like a custom design was scratched into the buttstock by the original owner before it was mostly sanded away. It almost looks like the diamond pattern embossed on the K98 sling, I wonder if that's where the 'artist' got their inspiration?

I agree with you about the carvings. I doubt the soldier whom the rifle was originally issued to did it as the Germans were very particular about their soldiers marking rifles. I don't know the history of this rifle so if it is indeed a bringback, maybe the soldier who brought it back?
