    Default My new mauser

    So I walked into a pawn shop next to where im working and spotted a mauser in the back case. I asked "what kind of mauser is that? Country of origin?".. The employee says " I dunno, its a mauser".. My first thought was "thank you genius" but asked to see it. Cocky and arrogant I was ready to give him an education but it turns out all I could say was "hell, I dunno either!"... But for $149.99 I had to have it. Upon getting home I did my own research... m44 spanish air force mauser. All numbers matching with original stock. Id love comments. Thanks guys!

    We have met the enemy and have learned nothing more about him. I have, however, learned some things about myself. There are things men can do to one another that are sobering to the soul.

    I would have paid that - if it were the same in
    Canadian funds !

    Looks like the finish has been stripped.
    Some stain and a coat of linseed oil
    will help.........

    To me, anything that fires a 7.92 with a strong bore and matching numbers is worth what I paid for it. But the real draw was that I didnt know exactly what it was. The curiosity was killing me..

    Sometimes knowledge is our best friend... Glad to witness a great find at a bargain price for a fellow enthusiast and WRF member...
    I think the sale amount was better than average.. Perhaps even tops the going dealer rates... You did well IMO

    I thought I had encountered every mauser out there. Was kind of surprised to find one I didn't recognize.
