My first Mauser was an 1891 I won on the old Auction Arms site about 11 years ago. The stock was cut back and the front band and other metal was gone. Didn't know what they looked like with a full stock until later. And when I saw what they were originally I said I gotta have this. I found a full stock, handguard and everything else at what I think the name of the dealer was Orndnance something, don't remember exactly. I did wind up spending more for the stock and parts than for the original purchase but it was worth every penny. Can't hardly find an 1891 stock anywhere now. Then about a year ago I found an absolutely beautiful original 1891 Argentine, all numbers matching, even the cleaning rod, on the AA auction site which now also goes by GunAuction for $400. So I bid and nobody else was interested for some strange reason and so to my home it came. Wouldn't mind a few more. I have many different Mauser types but my fav is the Modelo 1891.
