The barrel band and floorplate are serial number matched along with the safety and bolt sleeve which are matched to one another, but the rest appears to be a compilation of parts from various rifles....Stock has also been varnished or shellaced....Displays well and should make a nice shooter....Put some rounds through it and not be worried about hurting things....Bodes
thank you for the information, it’s appreciated!

A bit neglected / patinated, dusty & semi-matching, but so far, we see mostly 1944-correct parts upon this l block example from Mauser Oberndorf.
MO made over a million of them in that year & this specimen appears to sport a few phosphated bits plus a WGL (white glue laminated) stock.
Thanks for posting, & of course we'd like to see more of it.
thank you for the information, i will definitely try and post some more pictures 👍🏻

I'm not sure it's all neglect....My first K98k was one such 'byf44' in the l block range....The receiver and barrel were blued, while the butt plate, entire bolt, trigger guard and bayonet lug all had a phosphate finish....Was missing the takedown disk and had the hole in the BP....

After having the rifle for a while, I noticed the phosphate parts were taking on a brownish appearance, to which I figured I had left those parts unoiled....I continued using a petroleum-based oil and the condition worsened...I eventually sold it back to the guy I bought it from, and he figured I shouldn't have used ordinary gun oil on it....Since then, I resist using any such oil on any German phosphate finishes on my rifles/pistols and haven't yet reexperienced such problems....Bodes
ok thank you, i will definitely keep this in mind
