Seller's Description

bcd G43 RIFLE 8MM

This is a German, bcd Gustloff-Werke G-43 rifle in 8mm. These rifles are the rarest versions of the G-43. They were made in the Buchenwald Concentration Camp under the supervision of the SS by slave labor in 1944, prior to the British bombing and destroying the camp. This gun has the typical early finish with rough machine lines on mating surfaces. Most of these rifles had a high failure rate due to sabotage by inmate, slave labor. This Rifle also retains the scope rail on the right side of the rifle. These were removed on most bcd guns before entering service due to improper machining of the rail by the inmates. This was done so when the scope was installed, it would not line up properly and would fail the sniper test. Approximately 40,000 of these rifles were made by Gustloff-Werke in WWII.

The left side of the receiver is marked with the Waffenampt proof WaA749 over bcd with the serial number, and large deep G43, and an eagle holding a swastika, to the right and a starburst stamp over the bcd. Gustloff-werke was the only small arms factory directly under Nazi control, so the receiver is marked with a small unique starburst to signify this control. All serial numbered parts match, inside and out. The bolt carrier has the cocking knob on the left and bolt hold open latch on the right side, and also has the dust cover in place.

The stock and hand guard are laminated with two WaA749 Waffens on the right side and the serial number and another WaA749 waffen on the bottom of the stock behind the pistol grip and one the inside of the pistol grip. There is a separation of the laminations on the top right side of the handguard but it is only on the right side and does not continue to the left side. It appears that the stock was put together from two pieces, since there is an angled cut and black line 6 to 7 inches back from the end of the forearm. This appears to have been done at the factory since the laminations and finish is not altered. The stock also retains most of the original glossy finish.

The magazine is painted black and is marked, aye, K43 and has a WaAB43 Waffen on the left side. The muzzle is threaded and has the thread protector in place. The buttplate is metal with a hinged cover.In the buttstock is a spare firing pin (Both front and back) And THE ORIGINAL OWNERS MANUAL dated 11. 5. 44. The sling may be original to the gun but not sure. The buckle is missing and the end is tied in a knot thru the buttstock. The bore is in excellent condition. The cleaning rod and front sight hood are missing. The overall condition of this rifle would be 90% to 95%.

This is the rarest version of all G43 rifles and is a huge part of history during the Nazi regime, since it was made in one of the infamous Nazi Death Camps, by Jewish slave labor. If you are a collector of WWII items, Nazi militaria or Holocaust items, this is the gun for you. You can just imagine the secretive plans to sabotage the rifles by the inmates of Buchenwald under threat of death by the Nazi SS. This may be your only chance to own an infamous piece of history, so don’t miss out. This is one of the best conditioned and most complete G43's we have ever seen!
