1900 mauser 96?
my LGS has a mauser 96 in it's original 6.5. I didn't have a tape measure on me so I don't know if it's a shortened M38 or original but it seems quite long. it appears to be all parts matching BUT...
it's been drilled and tapped for a 2 piece scope mount and it looks like they had to cut into the handguard ring to place the front mount. other than that it looks pretty good to the uninitiated, everything either has a crown stamped or a 3 digit serial that matches the last three of the gun. is $300 a fair asking price? were the handguard rings serialized or did they just have a crown? how hard would a replacement be if I wanted to return it to semi-original but slightly molested?
all guns lost in a tragic smelting accident.
