While the ZfK55 possess many visual similarities to the K31, the two rifles only have four parts in common
(the cocking piece, the firing pin, the firing pin spring, and the extractor.)

The ZfK55 is fitted with a 3.5x scope mounted to the left of the receiver, with the mounts being an integral part of the receiver.
The entire action of the ZfK55 is tilted at an angle to allow for ejecting cartridges to clear the scope.
The barrel fitted to the ZfK55 is heavier than the one one the K31 and is fitted with a large muzzle-brake/flash suppressor.
The ZfK55 also boasts a half-stock with a pistol grip and a bipod.

A nice original example, matching numbers including the scope &scope tin.
The stock has an old armourers repair to the top of the wrist, the top of the oak dowel is just visible, ive seen several all with the same repair.

Very Good Condition inlcuding the bore

A rare rifle not often encountered in the UK
