Can you post a picture of the top of the receiver ring. The part that shows the year/code? Also, please post pictures of any other markings on the scope. Also, where is the front scope base?

As of now, I can tell you the bolt is not original to this rifle. It is renumbered: whether this was period done or done after the war is difficult to tell.

The entire bolt is renumbered. Originally, the bolt had four digits on all components with a letter suffix under the number on the bolt handle. Here is a picture of an original 42 1939 bolt.

What's going on with the sheet metal thing between the receiver ring and the rear sight base? Is that the front mount--or some attempt at one?

Also, is there a "0,2" on the barrel collar where it meets the receiver?

Custom Mauser values are tough. Each is different and most sell for shooter prices. Yours is a really nice military gun that has had the stock cut down. suggest you find a WWII stock and then you will have a $1200 gun. Now it s worth about $400.

Yes there is "0,2" on the barrel collar what does it mean?

It means it was re-barreled during the war. I am not seeing a lot of value here and I assure you adding a non-matching stock isn't going to help it.

I would have it inspected by a gunsmith to make sure it is safe to fire and then enjoy it as a shooter.

Looks like the barrel was milled down for the scope mount.
