Whatever stigma Mitchell's has about them, the rifles are shooters, and they look good too!
I have an M48A from them that I bought from a private party, it shoots as good as my 1941 duv German 98 and my CAI Yugo 24/47.
I have a friend who has a Mitchell M48 that shoots as good as his Samco M24/47. WE only shoot handloads (myself) or commercial,
no surplus, accuracy is on par where it should be 3" to 6" with iron sights @ 100 from the bench depending on rifle, shooter, and ammo, across the board.
I'll take a Mitchell's any day, your's looks great, I'd keep it !!
