View Full Version : Bavarian Reciever Drilled and Plugged
I just got a 4,935,xxx Inland. I assume that it spent time in Obero÷sterreich (Upper Austria) as it has LGK O÷ stamped on the bottom of the trigger housing. The strange thing is that the left side of the reciever has been drilled out and then plugged. Anyone know why this was done?
Thanks, Greg V
cant answer your question, but OberŲsterreich is correct.
Thanks guys. I thought it might be for a scope mount.
Something else That I just noticed is that the oiler slot is not long enough for a USGI oiler. I figured that the stock was not USGI, just by looking at it. It looks like it might be birch. It is a high wood, but very thick and differently shaped. No U.S. markings and it has a smooth, blued buttplate.
The Germans made replacement stocks. That may be what you have. there is some info here...
The Austrians used leather slings and instead of using an oiler, often used a small plastic dowel. Your stock may be designed to use this.
Thanks, I'm sure you are right. I do have an Austrian leather sling, but I'll probably have to make the dowel for it.
