Leubecker Machinenfabrik (BLM): K.43 qve45 WaA 214 no letter block.
Made in early 1945, BLM had the highest percentage of "paid" workers
and their weapons are the best made and most reliable.
weapon has a Durofol 1 handguard (thought to be Bakelite, but
actually wood impregnated resin, pressure formed in dies), the
early G.41 style milled bolt housing and internal automatic dust
cover, all exclusive to the no letter block.
consider this to be the jewel of my collection, as Claus would
say, (if you own one of these) "You are a lucky dog". The Veteran
who gave this up did so at his wife's nagging. There were too
many Grandkids in the house and he was forced to leave the rifle
at an Army Surplus store in California.
owner gave him $20.00 for this and a No. 4 Mk. I Enfield. I acquired
this through the store owner. Undoubtedly BLM made the finest
weapons. Approx. 74.000 qve45 made in WW II.
