This piece is from the late Craig Brown collection. The description said "depot rework," with an estimate of $600-800, but I think it is all-but depot matching. Excellent condition, and wide variety of Imperial, Nazi, armorer's parts and different manufacturers. I come up with 17 different parts makers/time periods.

Stock has shrapnel damage to the bolt recess, comb, and trigger guard.

Serial 500a
Stock: 4.3.42 Mu (4th Day, 3rd Week of 1942 - or Wednesday January 14), 500 on keel and in channel
Hand Guard: 500 in channel
Barrel: DO 222/38 ERMA e/77 x3
Receiver: bcd41 (Gustloffwerke), 2x 1 Astrawerke, 1x e/1
Rear band: e/77 (Radom), 00
Front band: speed milled, unmarked
Bayonet lug: unmarked
Butt plate: e/26 (Borsigwalde), 500
Recoil Lug: Imperial Fractur
Bolt body: e/140 (FN, Fabrik-National for Mauser), firing proof, 2 symbols "E" and "U"
Extractor: e/1 (Gustloffwerke), no serial
Cocking piece: S/42 (Mauser), e/63, 00
Bolt Shroud: Imperial Fractur, 00
Safety: 00
Extractor collar: e/18
Firing pin: e/655 (Mauser), 00, 7, ? symbol
Rear sight base: e/623 (Steyr)
Rear sight leaf: Serif G, e/359 (Walther), 00
Rear sight slide: Serif G, e/359
Rear sight spring: e/623, 500
Cleaning Rod: unmarked
Band Spring: unmarked
Trigger Guard: e/37 (Sauer), 500
Floor plate: e/1, 1132 mismatch
Follower: e/1
Trigger: e/18 ax (for Gustloffwerke) Nähmatag, Dresden
Sear: Imperial Fractur, Crown/D, 00
Ejector box: e/623
Take down disc: unmarked
Sling Buckle: D&C
Frosch: unmarked

What a fun example.

Nice...
I have a on line bid on a small auction for Siezed rifles.
1917 that looks good and will only need the proper sights. Currently has Lyman target sights.
Buyer's premiums are steep on this one But I'm current high bid and sell below my limit with the fee

Range report: 45F, overcast, windy, drizzle. 100 yards benched with 30 rounds '53 Yugo and 15 rounds '78 Yugo. The '53 Yugo has been especially good lately. Second Mauser that shoots low, and this one a little left. At the end I was aiming a little up from the bottom and on the right edge of the paper to hit center. I moved the front sight a little when I got home as I had left my sight hood remover at home. 15 practice on the left target. 1st 5 hit black on the right. Then just shot for fun. The '78 Yugo shot even lower. Nice, comfortable rifle.
