Didn't want to hijack the thread started by mauserG71 with my questions.

Post war Czech K98 ...semi-Kriegs stock...blank receiver (other than S#, suffix- maybe scrubbed), unmarked barrel.

1. Were these ever found with milled bands...H style upper and milled lower?

2. Was the Bolt finish on some similar to an RC, nearly flat black ?

3. Were some noticed with a less than good buttplate fit ?

4. could one expect to see differences in the bluing between barrel, receiver, and bolt ?

Looked at the Kriegs book on these, but wasn't sure of the details questioned above.
(trying to determine if my suspicions of one I recently saw were correct.)

Thanks for any thoughts.

These rifles are commonly robbed for parts to restore wartime rifles, and it sounds like you may have found one that was.
Stamped bands, consistent bluing, and nice butt plate fit are typical for post war czechs....when you see otherwise beware.

I will add that some of these were water damaged in storage. The stocks are bad in the recoil and buttplate areas..

I have seen stamped but not KM bands on them.

Thank you Bill and TA.

I learned something today, it's a good day.
My suspicions were well founded.
