ID:	354024Could not fit all into one post so had to do another.

    For anybody who has not read my previous thread, this is a rifle given to me for opinion by the son of a WW2 vet who found it in his dad's garage. Its taken me hours and hours to gently clean off 60 years of dust and grime. Can anybody tell me what the K167 stamp is?

    K167 is early waffenamt for Mauser Oberndorf. Used until LATE 1935, when they changed to stick eagle 63.

    WOW!!!!!! you are a lucky man..That is one nice rifle..Sitting where it did for all those years you are lucky the climate
    is dry..S/42g's have a number of different proofs. They change all the way through production. The stock proofs on the side of the stock are of much interest. PLease post those..Bruce K. will probably want to see more of it for his book project..

    The plot thickens here. I took both the rifles to a local K98 guru. The S/42G and the bubbaed DOT 1943. The guru examined both bolts and showed me the DOT bolt was the actual bolt for the 42G and it matched the 42G in every aspect. Unfortunately the DOT bolt was a mismatch for the DOT but matched to itself. I am charging my camera battery and will post pics of my restored DOT and all matching S/42G as soon as possible

    As you may remember these are both vet bringbacks that have languished in a cellar for years. The vet sporterised the DOT but left the 42/G untouched.

    yes. The bolt pictured above is the bolt for the DOT. In abt an hour or so I will post pics of the real matching S/42G bolt.

    Here is a pic of the bolt of the S/42G As you notice if you compare the SNs in the first post , it matches completely.

    here are pics of the two rifles, the bubbaed DOT stock has been replaced with an unknown and unmarked later cupped stock. Bands and butt plate dont match, but its better than the sporterised stock the vet had done for hunting . Thank the Lord he left the 42G as it was.

    That S/42G is very nice! I think your friend should be able to get $3,000-$3,500 out of it without too much trouble, perhaps more if run in a competent on-line auction. It is tough to find these early rifles with bluing that nice. The stock is very nice as well. Thanks for posting the pictures.

    Very nice rifle! Thank goodness the S/42G wasn't sporterized.
    Thanks for posting and the pics.
