    This may look nice from the two very bad pictures and I can't read the description, but you would need many more clear close up pics of the markings prior to placing serious money down on this.
    There are several G41's that were produced. The Mauser or G41(M) which less than 12,000 were made and were abject failures and the Walther. The G41(W) marked guns are the earliest and so,e of these under serial number 7500 are of the "push button" variant. The "duv 43" are more abundant than the other two, but still rare and desirable.
    There are enough G41's in this country that you can get detailed pictures of that you shouldn't rush that amount of money unless you inspect that rifle in hand.
    Jmo. do to the rarity of these rifles, they are often faked along with K98 LSR's and SS contract rifles.

      I'm not bidding. I just thought it was Purdy.
      And obviously if I were to get serious on something like this, I would do my homework and seek out some expert knowledge, which it looks like you have.
      I appreciate the education. Really.

        Notes: Ordonnanzwaffen bis 1945
        "Except the Lord build they labor in vain that build it." I firmly believe this; and I also believe that without his concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better than the Builders of Babel: We shall be divided by our little partial local interests; our projects will be confounded, and we ourselves shall God governs in the affairs of men. I have lived, Sir, a long time..."
        Ben Franklin, arguably our least faith driven founding father

          Thanks for the translation!!!!

          Still would need better pictures. Just having a sanded stock alone would shave about $2000.00 off the cost.
          Could be a good one, but can't tell.

            For those of you who like this historical stuff check out this K98 LSR.
            This rifle has problems and hasn't been verified as original, but if it was 100% correct, $15k or more is not out of line.
