    I got a email Saturday from a guy wanting to sell me a incomplete Mauser. He hasn't answered back. He came from Armslist. Should I take him up on the deal?

    Depends on WHICH Mauser, and just HOW incomplete. I paid less that $100 a few years back for a Turk- one of the ugliest rifles ever born, rough shape- shoots damned good.

    As C3 said, it depends on which mauser. I was doing a cleanout in a friend's basement a couple years ago, and uncovered one of his dad's old rifles. He is not a gun person, so it was offered to me for $40 and the help with the haul out. Needless to say, I took him up on the offer. I wound up with a 1916 Spanish short rifle that is a little beat up, but is a great shooter. This one is a 7.62 x 51, and now that it is cleaned up (all I had to do was give it a good cleaning and inspection, The basement was very well sealed), I sits in my cabinet alongside my other 1916 Spanish in 7X57. All told, the pair cost me $125. Deals are out there, find out what the one that is being offered is, check it over good, and make your decision then. Best of luck.

    The thing that's keeping me from telling him no is that it might turn out to be a K98, but I can't be certain.

    Don't stress on it man. If it is meant to be he will contact you. If not, he won't. Keep looking and one will turn up at a decent price at some point. Kinda like how I got my MN 44. A friend of my wife wanted it out of the house, and offered it to her for $50. She called me up, and I came down and scooped it up. The right opportunity will come. Just be patient.
