Nice rifle, but the stock is not a 1945 DOU. The '45 was a semi kriegs. This is a 1945 DOU semi kriegs. Not a Soviet capture, but a post war Czech.
I like the idea that you found a sight hood and are taking the stock slowly. If you are looking for the correct stock let my know. It will look like mine with the hole in the butt plate to take down the bolt.
