"This ZfK55 rifle is unfired and was never issued. It only has some minor marks from storage at the support points where it was hanging for years as a wall display.  It comes with a complete original parts roll, scope can and sling. Previously, it was in the personal collection of a former Director of the Waffenfabrik Bern and went directly from the production line into to his private collection."

Minor wood marks caused by suspension brackets at two support points on left side of rifle only, as a result of hanging for years as a wall display.  Ths rifle was in the personal collection of a former Director of the Waffenfabrik Bern and went directly from the production line into to his private collection.
