GERMAN VOLKSTURM GEWEHR (VG1 LAST DITCH RIFLE). SN 113. Cal. 8MM. This rifle was made in the last days of WWII and is crudely made. It uses a semi-auto K43 mag and is considered unsafe to shoot because it was so cheaply and crudely made. Everything with the exception of the bbl, receiver and bolt on this gun are made of crude stampings as Germany's war production was pretty well nonexistent at this time. PROVENANCE: Stern Collection. CONDITION: Metal retains some 98% orig finish with what appears to be a small machining hole (flaw) toward the rear of the receiver just at the wood line. Bbl appears to have some spotting on the front half of it which I cannot identify. The K43 mag is in excellent condition and the wood, as crude as it is, is free of any marring. Sling is a very crude, thin cloth sling, that is riveted together where it passes through the stock. Buttplate is also a sheet metal stamping and remains in fine condition. Mechanics are crisp, bore is bright and shiny and shows little to no use. But gun is still considered a hazard to shoot. 4-33942 BK64 (3,500-4,500)
