I have to always stop on jpattersonnh's avitar for a minute! Huh

What was I going to say? Yea, if it fires and the stock isn't broken, buy it.

I'd grab it for that price IMO. I recently worked on a customer's rifle that was built on an 8mm Mauser action, barreled for .257 Roberts. The Mausers are simply worth the price just for the action alone these days.

A good action is going for more!!. Make sure you clean w/ boiling water after shooting corrosive ammo, then clean normally. If it is military surplus ammo, it is corrosive. I'd almost bet it is a Turk, or the seller really has no clue.
