    Sorry, it did actually come later than usual and I was also rubbing on it for a few hours. Lol!

    This thing is really nice, great shape. Fit and finish on it is amazing. The wood to metal fit is perfect and the machining is outstanding. The action is buttery smooth. Barrel looks good and it head spaced good on a no-go gauge. Very pleased with this purchase, especially what I paid for it. I need more of these old Mausers.

    Here is a couple of quick cell pics of it until I get some better ones posted.

    Thanks! I'm glad I have it as well. It missed the delivery date for one day and was late arriving the next, got a little anxious. Lol. Taking it out Sunday for it's first shoot. I have stripper clips in hand and ammo arriving tomorrow. Can't wait!

    Well, took it to the range today, functions and shoots awesome! A lot less kick than the 8mm as well. The old girl can still shoot straight too!

    I need to get her out again soon for some more range time. Maybe this coming week.
