Thought I'd add my newest addition . BCD 4 Phosphate finish in a semi krieg model stock. The bolt is not matching but the price was right. I always wanted to add a phosphate to my collection.

Where do you find these beautiful rifles in such great shape?

( My BCD 41 looks like it was used as a club in hand-to-hand combat!)

Explain the kreigs stock? german navy? It looks laminated? DId you treat the stock?

thanks for the post

Kriegsmodell (war model) stocks were those made during the later years of WWII. Due to the position Germany was in during those years, they simplified their stocks to speed up production. Thus eliminating some of the features earlier stocks had.

Some of the Kriegsmodell stock characteristics could be no bayo lug, no disassembly disk, screw retained bands etc.

I picked this one up at a veterans estate sale. His son who was there said that his father had brought it back from the war and sold me a couple other German WWII items with it. Kriegsmodel translates to War Model. The Germans were pretty hard pressed by late ‘44 to say the least and implemented time and material saving short cuts. As stated above, one of the major changes was the relocation of the bolt take down hole. Moved to the buttplate from the center of the buttstock. By the end of the war all the manufactures had begun installing the stock bands with screws in place of a steel band spring, however BCD never used this process. This is where the term semi-Kriegsmodel comes from.
