I recently acquired a G98/40 rifle that is a little different than any I have seen before. This one looks as though it has been through an arsenal rework of some sort. I'm hoping someone can shed a little light on where this might have been done?

The bulk of the rifle serial numbers match except the magazine floorplate and the bolt. The bolt doesn't have any two numbers that match itself. The serial number on the bolt does not look like the typical G98/40 serial number as the letter is a capital letter. Is this a bolt from a Hungarian M43?

The stock has a typical arsenal repair, and is coated with what appears to be the Russian shellac that you normally see on M91/30 Mosin-Nagants.

There are no import markings. All of the original markings are intact, and there have not been any markings added. Thoughts?

TIA!

robcox1,
What is the suffix on your serial number (on the reciever)? I just posted on on the 98 forum that is close to your in numbering but I can not make out your suffix?
Thanks
David

It's 1162 n. (I think, it could possibly be a u, but I'm fairly sure it is a n.)
