Remember this is the era when 57 Chevy's were made into hot rods, and kids bought German helmets for 10-20.00 to play Army with!Saw a blue plastic barrel full of Mauser military banner marked receivers, complete barreled actions, all matching...too good. Quite right that it's one of the Chinese contract rifles.I don't see nearly as many sporterized k98's as I used to, but I did see one recently...
