    I'm thinking about a Czech mauser 8mm for sale at a local pawn shop. It's priced at $250. What do I need to look for/at on this rifle - matching sn's, patina, import marks, arsenal marks? Wood looks good, so does the metal, but I only took a short look at it yesterday. Has not been sporterized or converted to 30-06.

    make sure it is 8mm.....I have one and it is 7mm...otherwise the old "gut feeling" may be what you need to go by.

    Just check the bore for rifling and rust/pitting.
