A profile view of the ZfK55. Note: the bipod legs don't lock. It too me several minutes to balance the rifle.
The very impressive looking flash-suppressor. Note: the standard K31 style sights atop the flash-hider and bayonet (?!?) lug below.
The forward barrel band. Note the heavy barrel.
A side view of the scope mount.
A rear view of the scope mount.
A top view of the scope mount.
The right side of the reciver.
The buttstock and sling bar.
The scopes carrying case. Note: the s/n on the case matches the scope and rifle.
A top view of the case. Note: the scope only fit's in one way. Also note the rubber disk to protect the scope and belt loops.
Scope and Case
Closer view of the scope. The T-shape plunger at the base of the scope pushes toward the front.
A bottom view of the lugs. Note the plunger.
Detail view of the top of the scope.
A half mounted scope. The front of the scope is slide into the front mount. The the plunger is pushed forward and the scope locks in place.
A mounted scope. How well the mount retains it's zero remains to be seen.
Note the checkering on the pistol grip.
A rear view of rifle and scope. Notice how the action is tilted towards the right. The magazine is also at a diagonal. It is speculated the tilt changes the angle of ejection. I intend to test this theory shortly.
Top view of rifle and scope. Note: the ZfK55 uses sights similar to K31 iron sights.
Another view of the pistol grip and trigger.
A view of the magazine and bipod. Note the scallops in the wood to allow a side to side tilting motion. Also, note the use of set screws.
A second view of the magazine. Again, note the set screws.
A close up of the magazine. Zf. Kar is short for Zielfernrohr-Karabiner. No, I can't pronounce it.
