First off Thanks for any input/help......don't have much insight on these....[picked it up at an estate sale....seller was like "you like that sniper"..........but looks to me like a parts gun (haven't attempted to take apart yet) as the number don't match...looks like it was proofed/accepted by Germany during WWII.....it has the rails in the back I assume that's for a scope mount....and not sure if sling is correct for it....nice bore..

more pics Thanks..
last pics to finish the story....left side of barrel shows what looks like a 34....92 in a circle and above that 77.....right side shows letters in diamonds along with a K same font as on receiver....finally on the left side of the receiver to me the sn has been ground and numbers reapplied...? not sure what that is about

Herr B. Ubba with Romanian AK sling, refinished stock.
Possibly a Finnish capture before Herr B. Ubba.
Just my first impression......actual mileage may vary.
Looks strange at the top rear of receiver where the "notch" would be located.
I really hope I'm wrong as it looks like a nice example.
Thanks...i also was wondering about why it doesn't not have a notch...and the saga continues
I think the waffenampts are fake. WaA103 is FN Herstal in Belgium.
81 Thanks.....so a early...non "sniper "....
I took a chance on lt as i didnt have anything like it...
So i will just shoot the hell out of it..
.....i also picked up some ammo they had for it...
SVT's take some dialing in with the gas settings and ammo selection.
Theres good info in this thread:
Forgot to ask....is Russian ammo corrosive?
81....Thanks great link....alot of info there to get me going......also in that link they mention HB or LPs bullets not sure what that means ...heavy ball and ?
Will have to dig it out of the ammo bunker....if i remember right its surplus...
got this last aug...with a bunch of other guns....have been going through m1 carbines and lugers and finally got around to this gun....
The old 'soldered together cube' cans from the 50's and before usually have a different designation (if you can read them).
In later years, the silver stripe disappeared from the outside of the can (and from the bullet points), so you need to know these letter designations to positively know that cans so marked contain light ball.
Thanks for the info on the ammo.....I posted afew more picks of barrel markings and sn....which looks as if it were ground and re stamped...?
PLAN ON RECEIVING a 60Db loss of all high frequency in your left ear if you don't use the highest quality hearing protection yodar
Interesting rifle. Thanks for posting.

My BETTER ear has a full 60 dB loss in the higher frequencies, and the other ear is missing about 80.
I don't blame it on shooting noise, though. I worked for 40 years in a coal-fired steam power plant, and you can believe me when I say there are VERY FEW things in one of those plants that aren't loud. Most of the hearing loss came in the first ten years.

Every problem can be solved through the proper application of explosives, duct tape, teflon, WD-40, or any combo of the aforementioned items.
A gun is like a parachute. If you need one and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again!
Why is it that 46% of the population which pay NO taxes, complain that those who do pay taxes, are not paying their fair share?
Youse guys don't no nuthing...........
what we have here is part of the WaA10 top secret german program that took captured weapons refurbed them and sent them back to the front so the troops could use them against the Russians......
THANKS for all the input.....look forward to shooting it....
