Smooth laminated stock with Waffenamt proofs on the left and on the bottom with the serial number, a late war laminated handguard, standard stamped cupped metal buttplate, cross-hatched leather sling and cleaning rod.

Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 70% plus of the original blue finish with the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth grey patina and the barrel showing a slight plum hue. The wood is very good with some scattered minor dings and scratches. Mechanically excellent. The optics are clear with the scope and repainted scope mount retaining 75% of their blue and black finishes.
