I asked him and he confirmed that the import says MM Huntington Beach CA.
Yeah, that's what I thought. :( Pending more pics, I think it's a legit PU (some Michells are). The downer is that it may adversely affect resale value, as Mitchell has acquired a nasty reputation for humping Mausers. Plus most of the PUs they sell are repros and they don't differentiate between those and real ones like this rifle.

Thanks for the info Ol' Relic. He got it for 380.00 so either way, he's either got a nice PU sniper or a nice shooter....what other pics would you like and will have him send them to me
Well, if he got it for that price, I'll toast him with a tall draft Stella when I get to the restaurant the wife is driving us to as I type this. :laugh:

Detail pics of the bolt handle, scope base and both sides of the mount would be useful.

Looks completely legit to me, that's a wartime Izhevsk mount. He made out like a bandit on that deal-with the bore condition being what you said, I'd have bought that one if I'd run into it locally at, probably, up to $600 or so.

This thread has me wondering if my PU is a real , (original refurb).

. . . You kind folks mind telling me certain traits to look for to determine if it is "as issued" or otherwise.
Post up some detail pics of it.

+1, saddly true. The man (Mitchell) has no one to blame but himself.
Sometimes, things become just about the money.
