Hi guys!

Just recieved a really nice looking rifle from SOG today in the mail. All numbers matching, bolt is electro penciled and also has the original stamping on the bolt handle. Dated 1918 and it is missing the big "S" at the top as shown in the picture ill tag along with it. Does anybody have some info on that? Every rifle ive seen had the big "S" stamp. Either way, the carbine is in really great shape, cant wait to clean it up and put a few rounds down range!

Thanks!

The lack of an S ususally signifies it is still in the original 8X50R chambering. If you have 8X56R drop one in the chamber and with your finger check to see if it goes all the way in. Some rifles escaped being marked. If it doesn't go all the way in then it is the original chambering.

Thanks Mc, Checked the chambering and 8x56r does go in all the way. Kinda got worried there, just bought up 240 rounds of the nazi marked M30 ammo and thought I was just going to have to go buy another rifle to use it in! Oh darn! :)

Thanks, the pictures really dont do the rifle justice, the stock looks way better than pictured!

Hey, all the parts have been marked with a "K", even the stock has a "K" with a square around it. Is that just a quality proofing mark or something?

The K stamped on all of the metal parts signifies Steyr manufacture vs. Budapest, which is an R.
