mauser CE 42
Please your opinions on this CE 42. Can someone explain the marking(number) on the barrel?

I'm not sure about the markings but where did you get those gun holders? I like them

My server is soooo slow today.. I can't open half of the photos. It looks like a very nice rifle to me. It has the "slanted" version markings on it as opposed to the standard straight block looking numbers. Nice original finish and wood. Can only see the thumbnail photos so I cannot comment on the barrel markings.

I can't tell much from you're photo's but, It looks all correct...The numberes on the barrell I guess you are refering to is the barrell code..The numbers will tell you by who, and when the barrell was made..Other than that I can;t help anymore without better photos.. The stock marking is correct for a 42 dated saure..

very nice. i like the 42's, dont see to many. only thing i dont like a bout the jp's are the really small delicate markings. same as my ce 43, very small delicate eagles and swazies.

My only k98 is a ce42 much like this one.
It seems like the blueing on the ce coded JP Sauers receivers is kind of " thin".
Is that due to speeding up production during wartime ?

Hello Gelotti. From the pics it looks like an original rifle, stock cleaned a little. That happened when these rifles passed through successive hands and the postwar owners tried to make them prettier. The "barrel band" markings are steel lot, blank maker, lot, and it will have a date on there. This is to identify the barrel to a lot and maker in the event of problems.
JPS receivers had a final polish on them before assembly which lightened the markings. JPS blue was quality, but wore quickly, apparently. Nice rifle.http://k98kforum.com/

My CE 42 is very much like yours with the sn in the "b" block, it looks like yours is in the "f" block? The one thing that differs with mine and yours are the numbers you mention, on the barrel. Where yours has the manufacture codes on the upper surface I have the sn over b horizontally and 3 WaA37 in the direction that yours has the numbers. The manufacture code or barrel code on mine is underneath and not visible when the action is in the stock.
Otherwise the 2 are so close that we'd have to check the sn's to make sure we got the right one.
