"...It is a "Mitchell's Mauser"..." It has no collector value as it's not a 'real' 1940 K98. The receiver may have been made in 1940, but the rest of it was not.
"...a beat up K98 in fair/poor condition, right?..." Nope. It was cobbled together by Mitchell and refinished to be a shooter. A real 1940 vintage K98 is worth a whole bunch more. Even in "fair/poor condition". There was one on Legacy Collectibles, last fall, that sold for $1,650.00. Mitchell's, when they had any, sold 'em for $400 to $700.
"..."collector's grade" K98s from Mitchell's..." There's no such thing. Refinished is refinished.
