I was just at one of my favorite internet gun autions- as I enjoy window shopping for C and Rs. I saw that there were 54 bids on a Mitchell's Mauser with a price of $450. Out of curiosity I had to look. The seller did a good job on listing the markings on the rifle but didn't identify the star asterick * on the metal. I suspect that something is wrong. Would they of taken the Russian captured X and put a line through the middle or maybe it is just for the buyer who will get a star like a student for being smart-or in this case stupid.
