I think unless it was something like the CMP auction carbine sets that had one of each of the Bavarian service agencies, the rifles were just sold as being a particular manufacturer with no notation as being Austrian, Bavarian, or other source.

The CMP letter will probably increase value a little, but not by a huge amount.

The blued, Austrian carbines were sold as regular service grades. I paid $495 for mine.

I'd have bought it for that price based on condition alone (and CMP certificate which validates it as not some hack job carbine). As to increased value generated by other nation use ...Austrian, German etc etc, that would depend if
the future buyer thought that made a difference.

The % out there that care? Few...very few in 2019, so finding the right customer is the resale problem to get more money from "provenance".

Nevertheless, it sounds like you bought it for other reasons than foreign use and the added history is a bonus.

Righteous carbine: congrats on owning it.

Just an interesting bit of info for you. It has a B-L-C (Brown-Lipe-Chapin) barrel. It should have BI stamped on the bottom flat of the barrel, behind the gas cylinder.

Were the Austrians required to cut off the Bayo lugs ?

It is my understanding that for both the Austrian carbines and the Bavarian carbines, the bayonet lugs were often cut off if present because these were supposed to be used for civilian police use and not for warfare in Post-War Germany / Austria. The presence of a bayonet or even a bayonet lug probably made it look more like a implement of war than a civilian law enforcement weapon.

I have seen lots of folks get excited when they first what looks like an original type 2 band on their carbine and then discover it is a cut off type 3 band.

It does have it. Is that good? I have one remaining carbine except the Austrian. It’s a really early original Winchester.

Just cleaned and inspected it. It’s in amazing condition. I’ll be shooting it this weekend.

warrantw5,
Did you wonder how Newscotlander was able to tell that barrel was a BLC from just the few pictures you posted ?
