Question for all:
I just got what was supposed to be a Peruvian 1891 aka Argentine mauser for $98.
When it arrived, I found it had been severely "bubbaized" and the stock, which was advertised as "cracked" was actually split almost in thirds. That's the bad. The good is that the bolt, receiver, barrel and magazine all match although the barrel has been cut short and for a sight and the bolt bent. There are no markings that indicate Peruvian heritage, just the usual Argentine stamps. The serial # is W43xx. Would you keep this and try to fix the stock(which at one time was a nice one) and just shoot it or return it? The seller has indicated that he will take it back and return my $$, but in looking at it again, I just wonder???? thanks:confused:
