I have a Nazi Marked Mauser 98 marked BYF 43 the rifle is in good condition for its age but the stock is cracked in half and the front sight hood and cleaning rod are missing. Under the wood, the barrel looks super clean. Everything is matching numbers EXCEPT for the Floor Plate is totally different number and the bolt assembly is yet numbered all components the same but with a different number than the rifle and the floor plate. It is a shame, but the broken stock is numbered to the rifle. It would have been great if the only different components were the floor plate and the bolt assembly! Maybe there is someone out there that can do miracles with the stock and somehow epoxy or glue it back together to make it all matched up to that point. I have seen spectacular work done on wood furniture, where you could not tell there was ever any damage done... I was going to try to find someone locally to work on the wood, but I have too many projects going on as it is. So I will leave the restoration to the next owner and if it does not sell the way it is then I will purchase any old stock from 1943 BYF and sell it as a complete miss-matched rifle. From what I understand, the late dated rifles are not that great of a collectors rarity, and are not worth as much as the earlier ones. All BATF rules apply, I can do a FTF in northern IL. Suburbs,  with valid FOID card, or Your FFL must accept shipment from private party, and send me a copy of his/her FFL.  I will add pictures and more info tonite. Asking $500 + Shipping You can contact me at Seven Seven Three - 447 - Eight Thousand. Darek
