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!
