Ms420 Monogrammed?



Log in to see fewer ads
Saw this the other day.....Love these old school Mauser's....I have a Ms 420 with the serial number being 2k higher than this one....all my numbers match to include stock.....but my trigger guard base isnt numbered as this one is....did they stop numbering them?....changed out?....not sure

also this has a monogram in stock with Dir over intertwined HB....a Mauser Director?....

enjoy al

What a treasure! The pre-“b” 420 series are confusing to me. The transitions overlap with actions, triggers, safeties and magazines. Can be Hard to identify from a single feature. Serial numbers overlap also with different features.

SFAL, does your rifle have a slide safety or the rotate safety? I have a late Ms420n with the rotate safety and push button magazine,


Edit, I’ll contact the seller and ask of which safety that rifle has,

Nice rifle, but it looks like it has been reblued (the rear sight scale should be in the white?)
As to the "Dir. HB", that could be any number of things, and any of them would be hard to prove without some written or photographic documentation.

I messaged the seller about the safety, his response was indeed it is a slide safety. (Jon speed lists an Ms420 with a rotate safety that has a considerably lower serial number)

SFAL, did you find a front sight for your rifle? If you still need one, I might have one. Might need some info from you if you’re interested
