K43 Semi-Automatic Rifle Dustcover

Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgThis small bit of sheet metal is the action dust cover for a German K43 main battle rifle. I am rebuilding one of these from Bubba to not Bubba and mine was missing this part. They were poorly constructed and often bent or damaged so most soldiers ended up discarding them. These were an un-numbered part so I am not concerned that this is a reproduction although the finish is correct so it shouldn’t look too obvious once it’s on the rifle. Update: I am an idiot, my K43 has a machined bolt and a different dust cover already on it.
