Would like a Mauser 98k rifle (pre WWII to end of war) in the $150 to $250 range that while maybe not in VG condition, at least could be refinished to look very nice. Want one with good stock, bore, lands, groves. If the right rifle came along, might be interested in a 98 made between 1898 to 1935. New to collecting C & R but am knowledgeable about refinishing wood (esp. oak & walnut). Live in Tennessee.
