...and they are sold out. He said they sold out a long time ago.

And of course, Aim Surplus gets some captured German Mausers... for almost twice the price!

I need a hug. :( :D

You didn't try to order one of those Mitchell's Mausers did you? Those aren't German guns, they are yugoslavian manufactured mauser clones. I can't stand seeing that company's ads in the NRA magazines and the CDNN catalog because it is misleading.

The AIM gun I got was a Russian captured DOU 43 semi-kriegsmodell. I was kinda disappointed because I wanted an earlier-war version with the bayo lug and cleaning rod hole drilled. I added a bayo lug and early war front band myself but still don't have a hole for the cleaning rod. :scrutiny:

Here's a picture of it after I stripped that ugly red Russian lacquer and refinished it in Tung oil.
