I just picked up a mauser sniper rifle and do not know much about them. It is a byf 44 with a zf 41 scope. the stock does not have the round metal disc and it does not have a bayonet lug. The forward barrel band has a welded seam and where the bayonet band is there is a piece of metal on the end with a screw. All numbers match. It appears to me to be a late war bring back, however I am finding it hard to get information on these rifles. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
