Unsuspecting Buyer

One of the auction sites have a current auction running for a Mitchell's ( i hate to even call it this) K98. I apologize for creating the potential of another rant but I feel bad for the bidders. If you look at the description you'll be very amused or very unhappy depending on the way you look at it. They provided a lot of pics and what a freakin mess. Somehow I wish anyone that's new to collecting would have to do a year at this site with all you guys before they plunk down any money.When I began collecting mausers Mitchell's got me for an M48A. I found this site after I made that purchase. I can't thank you guys enough for educating me and the continuing ed I receive here. My mauser collection is beautiful in my eyes and thanks to all of you I have nothing that's restamped, sanded to toothpicks, buffed or reblued. Thanks to all of you.

Its certainly sad what they did to a nice 1938 Sauer. And, that is not what that rifle looked like before the war! Early k98's didn't have front sight hoods, and didn't have the serial number stamped on the stock, a la russian captures. Nor were the bolts in the white!!
