The Nazi's thought they were smarter then everyone else. Since it was made in the 1940's, the 4 stands for 1944. Barrel is not tapered(that would be a commercial rifle) it is stepped, standard military. Seeing a 4 digit # on one piece ending in 22 and another part that is stamped 22, the bolt matchs itself. The serial # is on the left side of the reciever. It is still better then 90% of what is made today from a structure standpoint. Nice rifle. Simple, efficient, accurate.
Without seeing it. $200.00..$250.00. Now if someone wanted a great action to build on, $300.00. You can build any centerfire cartridge from a .220 swift to a 9.3x62 and beyond on it. Outstanding as is. Just shoot it and enjoy.
Freedom is not free. The best of us always leave too soon.
