Picked up this preduzece 44 Mauser up today and took it straight to the range. What a hoot to shoot! I had a blast. I'm pretty sure I overpaid for the rifle but it shoots so nicely, acurate and it is in really good condition, so I doesn't hurt too bad. Lots of waffen stamps still visible. I'm now reading up on it and try to find out more about it. Manufacturer, date etc.
