Default Questions about a mauser?

I went to my lgs and they have a mauser matching numbers with some custom work to it. It has a lyman rear peep sight the throat was cut out so the guy before could load 220 gr bullets in it. He replaced the original rear sight with a Remington rear sight (I don't know why he needed two rear sights but whatever) and they are wanting 189.99 for it. What do y'all think

Matching numbers don't seem to matter any more based on the rest of the work.

Alright I just got done talking to them some more about it he had the throat extended so he could seat the 220gr bullets further out so it didn't take up powder room. And its a m48

Don't. No, really. Just don't. At this point you really have no real way of knowing just what has been done to that rifle, or if the person doing it could find their butt with both hands and a guidebook.
