is this how a mauser not touched since wwII is supposed to look. when mauser's were issued to the german soilders all the parts were not blued...is this correct? if these parts are not blued, what chemical did they use on the steel to preserve the metal but leave the silver finish? is it a phosphate or just bare steel?

*** this looks better then blued k98's but is it "ORIGINAL"???

That rifle is just worn to the bare metal, perhaps been through a few hard wire brushings to remove rust and gunk as well to get it there. If one likes that, such rifles are alot cheaper than those with blue on them. ;)

keep in mind the stock disk and butt plate were NOT blued... the barrel / bolt / receiver / trigger guard and floor plate were.


that rifle was pimp shined in a sandy environment.
