Default Krieghoff - what do I have here?

Ok guys,.... what the heck is it?
I think I have a post war, GI put together gun, but looking for imput. Sorry for the lousy photos, but hopefully we can get an idea on this gun. Seems like Mauser frame, 42 mark on toggle. What parts are numbered are matching, but most are not marked at all. Sideplate, firing pin, hold open, trigger, take down lever, safety lever..... all have no markings. AND the mag is BW style, but no markings either. So...... what's up with this?

Definitely a late Mauser frame... (has the distinctive 'bump') and quite possibly a factory parts gun as you have described... possibly assembled from spare parts either by a GI or for a GI by factory workers after they were overrun. I noticed that there is no apparent lanyard loop either...

Sorry. I had additional photos, but could not get them to load. The other photos are on Jan Stills forum, along with comments from several of the luger guys. Thanks.
