Description:

Hooded blade front and tangent rear sights, with "duv/42" and "eagle/214" on the receiver ring, "WaA/140" on the barrel, and matching numbers on the bolt, floorplate, trigger guard and the scope base. The scope base is marked "duv" and "214", and the scope itself is marked "ZF41/1" and "fgz(triangle)" on the body. The stock is numbered "2356" on the left side, with a brown leather sling and a cupped steel buttplate.

Rating Definition:

Very good, with 40% of the arsenal refurbished blue finish, showing a bright gray patina on the barrel bands, a few hints of brown patina, small areas of pinpoint pitting on the receiver, and mild spotting and handling marks overall. The serial number is absent from the front barrel band, mixed on the mid band, and some polishing can be seen in some of the other numbered areas. The stock is a good replacement, with some opening of the wood grain, a small crack on the wrist behind the receiver, and mild handling marks. The optics are a bit hazy with some minor spotting, but generally in good order. Mechanically excellent.
