Not as gloat worthy as the M91 stock I picked up a few weeks ago. I just won a 1932 dated M27 from an auction. The rifle was labeled as an M39, and it didn't show up in search results, so I was hoping to get this really cheap. Ended up close to my max bid at $450 plus 26% auction fees. I'll find out the shipping costs after I contact the auction. The rifle looks like it was refurbed prior to import and sits in what looks to be a 28/30 stock. I don't know if anyone keeps track of these serial numbers, this one is 0716.

Very nice. I've had two VKT M27's in the past (both 1932). Serials 1308 and 2109. Both in what looked like original stocks.

Rifle just arrived today. So far, looks to be in excellent shape. Cleaning the bore right now. At first I though the previous owner shot corrosive through it without cleaning it. After some wipes, I think the brown stuff is just preservative grease--which is a little odd as the rear sight did have white paint as if the previous owner was trying to make the rear sight more visible for shooting purposes.

Stock is a NOS wartime M28/30. Yes, the receiver is cut for the bolt wings. No, the original winged bolt is not present. And, yes, I did check the tang. It is not an antique.
