    FWIW, two comments. First, early Mausers, perhaps their 1891 or 93s, had a heat treatment
    problem. Mauser discovered it early and condemned the rifles....never sold. Somewhere, when
    reading a post abo...

    Never know what you'll find in a pawnshop, why I check the ones closest to me. For example,

    Back in the 70s, I was a buyer for a large auto parts distributor with a very large chain of

    front of the s...

    especially ...
