Talking Bavarian Forestry Rackers - WOW!

After receiving my two Rural Police Service Grade Flippers last November I got excited about these Bavarians so I placed another order for the Forestry Police. Unfortunatly I missed out on the Service Grades so I took a chance and made my first Rack Grade carbine order. I added a sticky note asking for a carbine marked with an O+M since my wife is from Nuernberg. I don't know how these were graded as Rack...time to buy a lottery ticket before this luck is gone!
Enough blah blah, here are the goods.

INLAND 6-digit (684,xxx)
BAVARIA FORESTRY POLICE O+M
BARREL: INLAND 8-43 MW=2.5 (NOT counter-bore!)
BOLT: flat .U.
SLIDE: AOB
TRIG HSNG: BE-B LGKV 0503
STOCK: high-wood TRIMBLE TN, circle P on grip
RECOIL PLATE: PR
(bolt and stock are both marked with 0260 and are the only parts with last 4 stamped but don't match the receiver)

INLAND 6-digit
(SN 808,xxx SG marked Saginaw Receiver)
Left side of receiver drilled/tap for mystery scope mount.
BAVARIA FORESTRY POLICE
BARREL: INLAND 8-43 MW=1.8 (NOT counter-bore!)
BOLT: flat, W
SLIDE: W
TRIG HSNG: S'G' LGKST 0948
STOCK: high-wood IO, ordnance bomb in barrel channel
RECOIL PLATE: D.I.
(bolt, slide, trigger housing and trigger are the only parts with the last 4 of SN and all match the receiver)

These are before cleaning! Finish is an even black (the camera-flash makes them look shiney)

I bought an IBM/AO last summer at the NS and the trigger group is marked LGKV 0203. The sticker, marked 203, on the butt stock is exactly like yours right down to the style of the lettering. Could they have been in the same barricks or post at some time? Who knows, but its fun to think about. Mine is not marked for the forest service.

Default Austrian visitors

Hi,

Your "LG" marked Bavarians also saw time in Austria.

LGKST is mark of the Land Gendarmerie Command (LGK) in Steiermark in the post war British zone of South-East Austria.

LGKV is in Vorarlberg in the far Western mountainous region of Austria adjacent to Switzerland.

Nice carbines!

Sorry but I hadn't checked the forum for a while. Here are some pictures of my IBM/AO carbine showing the 232 rack number.
