I was in a gun shop just looking around and a store clerk asked me to identify a military rifle that just came in. It was '98 Mauser marked byf (Mauser Works) 43 (made in 1943) and the exterior had the Nazi markings scrubbed off. There was a small "x" stamped on to top of the receiver ring that was put there by Ivan. I asked the clerk to run a brush and some patches through the bore. After the cleaning, the bore was just about perfect. It was cheap and I liked it so I bought it. If you want a German Mauser from WWII, the Russian capture rifles are available at reasonable prices and at a fraction of the cost of an original. Check the bores very carefully because most Russian capture rifles that I have examined had badly pitted bores. All the best...
