800$ gewehr 43 dated 1945 all matching numbers, should I buy it? The one thing is I had blanks and it would not shoot.
:shock: Plus the bolt carrier felt very loose, is that common with this type of rifle?
Thanks
Mark

I'll buy it if you don't! Who has this rifle? Any story behind it? Does it have a BFA? Or you may have to check to see if the gas piston is blocked. The shooter's kits that Rob Applegate makes have different aperture screws for the gas piston. One of them allows you to close the piston off to make it single shot only. That might be the issue. The bolt carrier should wiggle a bit. Pictures would be nice too.

I've got an AC45 K43. It's a fantastic shooter.

This guy I meet at a small event in Canada. The only story of the gun is, he bought it in 1989 off a friend.
Sorry I do not have any pics of the gun. No it does not have a BFA.
Thanks for the help :D
Mark.

Heck even if it doesn't work it's a steal, even if it's a good repro it's a steal! My god man, what are you waiting for?

:D looking forward to seeing the pictures...if you're not happy with it after a few days, I bet you'll sell it fast again!

Are you located in Canada then? Or were you just visiting?

For $800 you got one hell of a bargain. Congratulations. First thing you should do is get a shooter's kit from Apfeltor. This will keep your rifle from beating itself to death.

Examine the bolt and carrier CAREFULLY for cracks.....slam slam slam...cracks....
Mine had some along the rear edges, and off it went to Apfeltor. Good as new.
...now to get a new sear/trigger bar.....
