    Default Stomperud front sight

    I wonder where one might find a front sight to fit a Nc series stomperud? Someone gave me a barreled action that's in very good shape. Made from a Steyr receiver, after cleaning a bit of rust out of the barrel, I can see it has been fired very little. Serial # is 1034. The rear sight is missing too.

    Hmm, no immediate help forthcoming. I see the design is similar to the that of a Ljungman M42. I'll see if that hooded sight and it's adjustment screw will work, if not, they go off to ebay.

    It should take an ordinary M/94 frontsight. Just with a cut for the sight hood. I do have both front and rear sights, so send me a PM.

    That's a pretty high serial number for a 'Nc' Stomperud. Mine is in the 500 range.

    I'm looking for pre-war Yugoslav Mauser bolt number 36455. If you have it, let me know! I'll pay a finder's fee on top of the selling price.

    I can see the remnants of a 7, from the 1897 stamping on the Steyr receiver. The old serial # is completely gone. The cutoff is made of a rod, it has a spring like a regular cut off though, not some homemade device. Unlike a 1916 made receiver I have, the root of the bolthandle is also bearing at lockup. Bolt # matches. I'll get some pics up later.

    Bore condition with minimal cleaning: I can't wait to slug it, made in the 40s, I'd think it would be a bit tighter than the .268+ one usually finds. Now if I can just remember where I put that #2 buck shot.

    The cut down and sanded stock I got as one option for the .243 project, fits the Stomperud's barrel taper better. Luckily, I didn't cut anything out of the barrel channel. Previous owner hogged out some wood around the receiver ring. The stock appears to be from a 1912. I'm going to need a lower band too, the type that has a cross pin/screw that goes through the stock, and goes over the barrel, not over part of a handguard. Numrich is out.

    The lowest known is NC601, while the highest known number is NC1095. This, from the Kongburg website. I saw 1021 sold as a 1912 for $500 back in 2014. It needed parts. It was a Kongsburg receiver.

    Looks like they need to update their site! Mine is definitely in the 500 range.

    Yes, it appears that way. Here's a few pics of what I have. I wonder if the bolt shroud might have come from the original receiver. Probably not, they were likely working out of parts bins. I can't quite figure out what the stock was originally for. Looks like some sort of carbine, based on the 1912. The cut for the band appears to be arsenal done. Maybe one of you guys more familiar with the various models will know.

    Others might have more success, but I'm getting 'Invalid Link' error messages when I try to open your photo attachments.

    Hopefully I got it fixed. I can see it, I can see the ones that I linked, but it appears others can't I had to drag and drop them after uploading in order to attach.

    Fellow that I got this from just wrote to let me know, his dad paid $10 +$4.50 shipping for the action in Jan of 61! AG42 sights won't work, dovetail too wide, adjustment screw too big.

    I've taken a closer look, you can see the condition of the bore above. There wasn't any sign of dissolved nitro powder on the patch, just brown from light rust. Looking at the bolt face with a magnifier, I can see no sign of brass at all. There may have been a round or two chambered, but I don't think there's been any fired through it!
