Just got notified that I won a auction for a MAS45 for $350.00. Rifle has ! magazine and sling. Do you think I paid to much for this rifle?

Assuming the rifle in question is in nice, original condition you did very well. Congrats!

consider yourself fortunate at that price, even if the condition is a bit lacking. those rifles are in high demand, and not many around.

Yup, you paid too little most likely. Excellent to VG MAS 45s have been selling in the $550-650 range of late.

Anyone looking for a spare magazine? I found that Numrich has them. I ordered 1 today for $20.50 plus tax and shipping.

I too have recently become interested in these neat rifles. Missed one on Gun Broker by $5, I bid $280 and the winning bid was $285. Fast forward a week and I found the one with a dark stock and Mauser marked receiver at a LGS. About a week later the same shop got in another MAS 45 this one with the MAS 45 marked receiver and I now own that one also.

These are truly interesting rifles so I just added my 3'rd example and this last one is flat mint. I enjoy all the anomalies with these. Some built totally in Germany at Oberndorf, some built in France with German parts then finally all the rest built in France. All three of mine are different in some way but they all shoot wonderfully. The real upside is that these MAS 45s are relatively inexpensive but I'm sure that will change as more collectors and shooters discover these rifles.

The MAS 45s are based on the KKW like this Gustloff and if you look closely the actions are identical. To bad the prices are not.

Mag 204 The bottom picture of your MAS 45 looks just like mine except for the sling is different.

No my sling doesn't look like yours. Mine is tan leather with red writing stamped on the inside. It is adjustable for length.
