I am selling a matching duv 41 k98. All of the metal parts including the bolt in 4 places (striker, root, extracter, safety), barrel, both bands, trigger guard, floorplate, bayonet lug, sights and band spring are stamped matching and correctly eagle-214 proofed. The cupped buttplate is also stamped matching.
The stock is a byf armourer's stock and as expected has no external proofs or markings other than the byf and hand stamped matching sn on the bottom spine. The handguard is stamped with the serial number in the barrel channel.
We Marines believe that God gave America the greatest gift he could bestow to man while he lived on this earth-freedom. We also believe he gave us another gift nearly as precious-our soldiers, sailors, airmen, Coast Guardsmen, and Marines-to safeguard that gift and
guarantee no force on this earth can every steal it away. It has been my distinct honor to have been with you here today. Rest assured our America, this experiment in democracy started over two centuries ago, will forever remain the "land of the free and home of the brave" so long as we never run out of tough young Americans who are willing to look beyond their own self-interest and comfortable lives, and go into the darkest and most dangerous places on earth to hunt down, and kill, those who would do us harm.
