svw45 b block

This is an svw45 Mod.98 mauser. About February 1945, Mauser changed to the svw code on it's mauser production. The svw code is fairly hard to locate, as only about 12,000 were serial numbered. Not all that were assigned a serial number were finished by wars end. This particular gun is matching. It has a phosphate finish on all the parts, has a single screw type svw triggergaurd. The serial number puts production in March of 45, and not long after this serial number the code switched yet again to svwMB. The Kriegsmodell stock has a Wa135 proof mark.
