Just dug out my Mauser and thought I would share. The disc has been replaced with wood and checkering that could be better was carved into the stock at some point early in its life. I was told that it was done by the veteran who brought it home.
Wooden plug, replacement sling
1942, BYF manufacture
Interesting choice for checkering…
Overall a sweet shooter and one that I’ll never get rid of.
oh my god it is a picture of a gun
are the other items repro or real?
The other items are real. Grandpa brought them home. They are what they are in a historical context.
could not agree more
some useless trivia - what defeated country retained and still flys their battle ensign?
I’m not going to cheat and use Google… so I have no idea!
you had a one in three chance
the Sunburst ensign is still used by JNS
I should break out my WW2 stuff.
Another thread on the horizon…
Do it @Grenz45! I love me some WWII surplus and history- always cool to see what others are curators of!
