Hi all,
I've got a russian captured S/42G in a laminate stock that is undrilled for the cleaning rod, any particular reason why?
I know it should be a walnut stock for that period (1935), but the laminate stock is what it came with. it has a few cartouche outlines, but nothing that can be recognised.

I'm happy with it, it shoots well and I didn't want a Lee Enfield that everyone else has on this side of the pond.

Just curious.

get pics. toward the end (others have the date pretty much down, not me) some makers stopped drilling for the rod, id guess late '44.

As part of the transition to the Kriegsmodell K98k, Brunn I and II (dot and dou) stopped drilling the holes for the cleaning rod in late 1944 even on guns issued with the bayonet lug.

If it has a cupped buttplate, then given that, and the laminated stock, it would appear that this is a late war stock applied by the Russians. As stated above, pics would disspell a lot of the suppositions.

not likely a post war czech stock if it has cartouches.

Yes, its a cupped laminate stock with cartouches. Will get the wife to do pics, she's better at that than I am.
We never see all matching mausers over here, there all mis-matched, its a challenge just to get it of the period look.
I'm sourcing some surplus ammo over here, getting ready for next years visits to the military ETR(fall when hit) ranges.:)
