Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgThis is my second G/K43 Rifle. The other one I have, I rebuilt from a converted sporter. This one came to me, 100% correct from a fellow collector raising funds for his next absurd purchase. The receiver is stamped AC 44, for Carl Walther Waffenfabrik in Zella-Mehlis, Goethestr. 4.

Note the stamped dot in the butt plate, the staked screws on the underside of the action and the WaaB43 stamp on the magazine (indicating manufacture by Olympia Buromaschinenwerke AG).
