I recently learned that this bolt was made for either an SS or Single Rune contract k98. I just want to share this with others as part of the k98-borg knowledge-base, before my thimble of knowledge evaporates... Thanks to Turbo Archie, Bruice98k, Pisgah, Dave Roberts and gunboards threads for sharing their knowledge to help me understand this neat piece of k98 history and lineage.

This bolt is just one of several variations in its class. The hallmarks are serial number limited to bolt root and safety. The bolt is fire proofed. The bolt and some of the other parts have punch marks from hardness testing. The bolt body is rough in appearance. The absence of serial numbers, makers marks and inspection marks are important to these contract bolts.

This self-matching bolt came with an otherwise all matching non-import marked dot 1943. The serial (2254) is stamped only on the bolt stem and safety. The overall finish is dark blued. No other serials present. Some parts have hardness test marks. The bolt also has the usual firing proof and a mark that I can not decipher (either a makers mark or a scratch). The bolt handle is rough and the bolt stem is not smooth. It has a not-quite finished look to it... While the other parts look smooth...

These bolts were made between 1943-44 for the SS or single rune rifles made by "bnz".

Enjoy the pics and comments to expound on this bolt and subject are welcome... I have soooo much more to learn...

rcmauser,

Thanks for an excellent and informative post! I will add a similar photo study when I get back in town for comparison/contrast. Perhaps others will also. This thread will make a great addition to the SS Sticky.
