K98 guru's care to take a "shot"
I have a DOU44 and want to know if stock is authentic. the bolt and barrel #s match, no obliterated markings or import marks, no evidence of it being a capture rifle. The trigger/floor plate are marked only BYF so I think that's replaced. as for the stock it is almost too good condition wise for wartime gun,it doesn't look like its laminated, has the cup buttplate, sling swivel on the bottom of rear barrel band, front band is milled H type, wood not drilled for a cleaning rod and it doesn't have the large metal grommet. no markings on wood.the sling looks authentic and is very old....anyone care to venture an answer without pics?
