Chinese mauser
 
Anyone here had any experience with Chinese mausers? Can't find much about them online but what I have found says that, for the most part, they're kinda junky and built with substandard materials. I was just wondering if they were all bad or if there are some that are ok. I came across one for pretty cheap and wanted to know if it would be worth it to get it.

Chinese Mausers
 
Hello all/Responce to Zk

Yes, so many other mausers a better bet than the Chinese mausers? I'd look at a M-48 or a K-98 or a LOt of other Mausers long before I'd trust a Turkish or Chinese Mauser! Lots of Both Blown up by owners in the past! Just not safe till checked out by a Smith, for that matter any Old Mil-surplus Mauser should get a looking at? A Check of Headspace and general overall condition to see if it's safe to fire?
