    Bore is good, bolt is excellent but will need new extractor. Stock is rough. Good late war code. Has a few Waffenampts but stamped 7.62 with Star of David. $350

    It is for sure. There is some pitting under the wood and I recently restocked it. The wood was rotten in areas but kept the pieces of stock. Wherever it went it saw action but was poorly maintained. To keep it functional I had to get it out of the old stock and clean the pitting underneath.

    You are breaking my heart here. Want another one of these so badly, but just bought a house. The one I had was known around here as "the Hebrew Hammer."

    I haven't shot it. Bolt face looks good and bore is good though. I am restocking it now and have not had a chance to check headspace.

    I have to update the pics. The old stock pretty much rotted off. I still have it but it is in pieces. The new stock looks great on it.

    That's a shame. A lot of the desirability of these exists in the stocks. Head stamps are important too. Many have a Magen David or chrysanthemum. Maybe I'll run across one again some day when I'm a little more flush.

    The Israelis flew ME-109s in the first war with Merlin engines as well as a bunch of other WWII surplus junk

    This post has been up for a LONG time. Seems OP doesn`t really want to sell.
