From the top barrel view u can see where the sight was. It's almost like it had a sight base like a mauser 98 that wrapped around barrel from the in letting on side of barrel in stock.

That is a DSM34, it would originally had a 98 style sight. The earlier ones were mounted on a barrel sleeve and the later ones were soldered atop the barrel.

The stock has been modified or replaced as it would have had a military style stock with a hand guard.

So basically it was a dsm34 mauser trainer that was spoterized. I as well as an antique dealer friend feel the carvings are German black forest in style. So it is possible that the stock was modified in germany. Possibly a usgi acquisition while in country post war.

In my opinion, that sporterizing was done on this continent, not in Germany.


There are two ways to go with this rifle: try to get it back to original configuration, which will be time-consuming and expensive, if you can even find the parts. Or, you can keep it the way it is and get it drilled and tapped for scope bases, a receiver sight or open barrel sights, and enjoy shooting it.

I am further confused by this rifle. My thought was that is was a DSM34 in a aftermarket or made stock as there is not sign of the sling cutout or round bolt tool in the buttstock. No sign of patches or filling in. So I pulled the action out of the stock today and the stock has a serial number in it and it matches the gun. So did they make a DSM34 without the round piece and sling cutout in the buttstock.
