Finally, I was able to add a K98 Mauser to my WWII collection. After the frenzy surrounding the non-import Mauser sale at Southern Ohio Gun (SOG) ended, I began a search of my own (again) for a nice Mauser... one that is not peened. Not long after the SOG sale ended, a CMP forum member put up his privately owned Mauser (ce 44). I let it sit on the forum for two days before I made a move... what do you think:
Picture Belongs to a CMP forum member, theese are not mine...only the rifle belongs to me
Bluing is rough, but that's all right... adds to the characer of the rifle...
It was noted as shooter with good lands and grooves...and a dark bore. When my PRVI Partizan ammo comes in, I'll give it a go.
