Same deal. Post your serial numbers here or e-mail me privately. I am starting this out using serial numbers from a study published in the August, 1997 KCN (KCN Database). In addition to the KCN study, I have included serial numbers from my collection as well as serial numbers I have observed. If you know details like import marked or not, type of metal finish, Kriegsmodell or not, French features or not, or anything unusual, please include this information and I will post it also. Concerning the numbers listed, unless a rifle is noted as "French" it is thought to have no French features (i.e. thought to be a German WWII production rifle). Obviously, studies like this are limited by the knowledge and experience of the individuals collecting and submitting the information. Still, I believe it is worthwhile and believe that it will help explain more about late Mauser Oberndorf production.

**(2/14/06) I am expanding this study to include Mauser Oberndorf assembled rifles from 1944. As with the 1945 dated rifles, I'm starting this using the serial numbers from the August, 1997 KCN. Notice that many more serial numbers are listed in the no letter block category. I am suspicious that this is due to individuals submitting their serial numbers who did not have an appreciation for the use of letter blocks. For similar reasons I am suspicious of the "i" and "l" block rifles listed. I have included the "o" block and "r" block rifles from that study;however, understand that their existence is controversial. It is possible that these rifles had letter suffixes which were poorly struck and mistaken to be "o" and "r". **

I appreciate BAF saving this thread along with the other two. I haven't been able to re-register yet. It seems that my e-mail service is rejecting messages from gunboards.com. I have attempted to retrieve my password a number of times but don't receive anything when I do it. Anyway, I found the old stickies on the old GunBoards yesterday and saved them on the GK43 forum as I didn't want the information lost and wasn't having trouble posting there. When I get my user name and password sorted out here I will continue to maintain this sticky along with the stickies on dot 1944/swp 45 and bcd 4/bcd 45 (at both sites).

Look for a letter suffix after that number. As is, it would be 10k past the latest known no block byf 44. More than likely it has a poorly struck suffix letter. Post a photo of the serial number if possible. Thanks.

Same deal. Post your serial numbers here or e-mail me privately. I am starting this out using serial numbers from a study published in the August, 1997 KCN (KCN Database). In addition to the KCN study, I have included serial numbers from my collection as well as serial numbers I have observed. If you know details like import marked or not, type of metal finish, Kriegsmodell or not, French features or not, or anything unusual, please include this information and I will post it also. Concerning the numbers listed, unless a rifle is noted as "French" it is thought to have no French features (i.e. thought to be a German WWII production rifle). Obviously, studies like this are limited by the knowledge and experience of the individuals collecting and submitting the information. Still, I believe it is worthwhile and believe that it will help explain more about late Mauser Oberndorf production.

**(2/14/06) I am expanding this study to include Mauser Oberndorf assembled rifles from 1944. As with the 1945 dated rifles, I'm starting this using the serial numbers from the August, 1997 KCN. Notice that many more serial numbers are listed in the no letter block category. I am suspicious that this is due to individuals submitting their serial numbers who did not have an appreciation for the use of letter blocks. For similar reasons I am suspicious of the "i" and "l" block rifles listed. I have included the "o" block and "r" block rifles from that study;however, understand that their existence is controversial. It is possible that these rifles had letter suffixes which were poorly struck and mistaken to be "o" and "r". **

ar 44 #9552. Vet bringback, but semi-sporterized by discarding stock and barrel bands and put in a Bishop stock. Otherwise, receiver and all bolt parts match. Not drilled/tapped. Bolt handle original.
Put back into cupped butt laminated stock in original configuration.
There is number 44D893 on the barrel just ahead of the receiver.

Hey Spanner is the SN on the barrel or rec. Also, how are the bolt parts numbered.

The serial # is on the left side of the receiver, top of bolt handle root, top of the small flat on the bolt shroud, L 52 is on the firing pin, and there is a D on the bottom of the cocking piece. The safety and cocking piece are not numbered.
The 44D893 goes from L to R across the top of the barrel about .5 in. in front of the receiver.
