    Default Looking for advice on BCD 41 Receiver markings

    Yesterday I purchased a BCD 41 marked K98. The rifle appears to be a Yugo rebuild, as the stock has triangle stamps, and the BBL has a triangle n stamp (bbl appears to be new), and when checking headspace with extractor removed, the bolt will only half index on a go gauge. The bolt is not serial numbered. The lack of Waffenampts drew me to this rifle, as the receiver is an astrawerke mfg receiver, BCD41 marked, and it has no firing proof. The serial number stamping also appears odd. Anyone have any input as to the possible history of the receiver? Depot build, armor spare, etc? Thanks for any input

    Need to see the barrel markings. Receiver looks re-blued in photo's. The X means Ivan had it at one time. The stock is a Yugo that's being sanded

    Could just be a wartime spare receiver assembled into a rifle by whoever installed the barrel. Any wartime depot build would have firing proofs.

    Thanks mrfarb, I wasn't sure if a receiver that was a depot build would have a firing proof or not. With the the mix of yugo parts, and lack of importer stamp, I have no idea if this was a yugo build, or someone built it with surplus yugo parts.

    The stock was not in that bad of shape, considering what had been done with it. a run down with steel wool, BLO, and a dry day in the 90s provided a result I can live with for a rifle that cost $300 (+ reamer rental).
