Default German contract G39/40 Hung.Mannlicher

I picked up a 1942 dated German contract G39/40 Hungarian Mannlicher for cheap because it was sporterized (cut down) and the bolt went missing.
Its still number matching incl the
buttstock which I can still use...
but I need a bolt for it as shown below...
Anybody? and some bands, bayonet lug, rod...
the replacement wood I already have a lead on!

Obviously sporterized (cut down as a hunting rifle) but worth restoring. Since the stock is a separate piece and number matching to gun, that can be saved!
New wood and bolt in the works, stock refinished to military spec (with Linseed oil) and all the shiny lacquer removed!

You'll be more successful in your search if you use the correct model name which is G.98/40 and not G39/40, that will bring you more search results.

High End Reproduction stocks are available from Poland here: http://fox-military.com/en/stock.php?id_produkt=52 . I'm sure you'd be able to buy only the front stock only too.

Default G98/40

Anyone care to wager a guess as to how many people need G98/40 bands?
