I'm first time on...A previous post of 8-17-10 discussed this type of German rifle.I have just purchased one that seems to be the same gun.Haven't tried to post pictures yet but I'm looking for any more information.163xxx with markings as the one rifle posted back in 2010.B.U.G. with crowns on barrel and B.U. on receiver.It has the Mauser stamp on right side of the stock.There are no sights except a hood around what might have been a front sight. No rear sights at all.The barrel is marked at different spaces for distances.Question ...What kind of sight would be found on this gun?Where might I find one.etc.Any info would help.Thanks

Hmmmm?

Could you either link to the 8-17-10 thread?

Or post some pics of your gun??

My crystal ball is in the shop getting a deep clean buffing.

Just in general, a Mauser with BUG proofs was made before 1939.
Original parts are going to be scarce at best.

A track down the top of the barrel with numbered locations is for adjusting sight eye relief.
There were open sight only matches in those days and you wanted everything just right.

Thanks again

I wonder if there could be multiple sights that may have fit.Fjestad's 32nd blue book(page1255)vaguely describes a Military Sporting Rifle,type c with the Mauser imprint in side of buttstock.Would this be what I'm looking at or one of the others that you mentioned before.420 or 350.I don't know the difference anyway but it may help me to find out more.I'd really like to shoot the rifle but without a sight;well I might do better.
