This is why, an all Quality Hardware as issued with the exception of the flip safety and maybe the buttplate. The sling is an original Stolla Wien made in 1962. I don't have to worry that someone put bogus parts in it because I doubt that the German or Austrian Gov. was into humping parts. Where else could I find a early feature carbine, reasonably priced, and have it delivered to my door? Plus it has a history that can be followed. This Carbine was made and issued in 1944. In 1946 it was transferred from the U.S. Army to the Bavarian Rural Police where it saw service during the Post War occupation. It was sold to Austria in 1956 where it saw service with the Austrian Gendarmerie in Oberosterreich. In 2008 Austria returned this Carbine to the U.S. Army which then turned it over to the CMP. On 11-13-2009 the CMP turned it over to me.

Very nice, I just got my IBM Bavarian today! Lots of original parts as far as I can tell. Is there a source for the German sling you have??

Very, VERY nice, Trickster!

And I agree whole-heartedly! My 1.434 Underwood is 95% original, except for the flip safety. It really is a beauty, and I NEVER would have been able to afford one just like it for the $750 I paid. Hell: the "MARLIN"-marked stock on it sells for that much alone!
