Firearm distributor Sounthern Ohio Gun International is having a sale.
German K98 Mauser $179.95 (second item from the bottom of the page)
These are rifles captured on the Easern Front by the Soviets. They’re still in 8mm Mauser and they’ve been areneal refinished so the numbers do not match, but they still have their Waffenamt Eagles and are somewhat of a collector item. They’re listed as NRA grade ‘Good’ to ‘Very Good’ condition and hand picked rifles are $10 more
If you don’t need a collectors item and are just looking for a large ring Mauser to sporterize, they’ve got you covered too.
03/38 Mauser $89.95 (second item from the bttom of the page)
German 1903 manufactured and refinished in 1938 and in 8mm Mauser in ‘Good’ condition. Handpicked rifles are also $10 more.
Now here’s the deal. You will need to go through a FFL holder to get these guns. What you’ll need to do is find one who will order it for you and then charge you a minimal amount to run it through their books.
Most shops charge you 20% of the price of the item, but locally, I have found a shop that will charge me the cost of the item + S&H + state tax + $25 for paperwork. That works out to about $235 for the K98 and $120 for the 03/38.
Still not a bad deal.
Stop by tomorrow to see what else I’ve found for you to spend money on.
