This rifle, marked FLY, is Norwegian air force issue. Army issue HAER marked rifles are far more common.
Note the KAL 7.62mm markings. Note that when this rifle was converted, the 7.62x51mm had not yet been developed and 7.62mm refers to 7.62 M2 ball, or .30-06. Also note the older German receiver markings.
Rear ladder sight. Note that the Norwegians changed the V notch to a U notch. Virtually no .30-06 Norwegian mausers have matching rear sigh ladders as they were removed for conversion.
Note the restamped serial number to match the Norwegian serial number added to the receiver.
Front band. Note most parts match the original German serial number still stamped below the new Norwegian serial number on the receiver.

Matching rear band.
Note the Eagle77 WaA stamps on the base. Bases may not be original as they were removed and replaced during re-barrelling.
WaA 359 on the receiver meaning the original JP Sauer receiver was forged at Walther's Zella-Melis plant. The ciscled A is thought to be a Norwegian proof mark.
Note the rear sight ladder is a late-war variant without reverse numbers. Also note the slide and button match the German serial numbers on the receiver.

Receiver markings. CE43. Note the relief cut to accommodate .30-06 spitzer ammo.

WaA's on the bolt shroud and under the bolt handle.
Note the bolt body used at refurb does NOT match the original German serial number. Sometimes the bolts are original matching, other times they are not. The Norwegians used whatever was necessary to assemble a serviceable rifle.
