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.
The RC X has a horizontal line through it so it doesn't look so glaringly like an RC. Aside from the heavily polished and restamped bolt the [email protected]*$k that's selling it is lying through his miserable teeth and I believe he knows it. Look at his other auctions and form your own opinion.
