Some years back I picked up a couple of M-48 Mausers from Mitchell's. I was looking for a clean shooter, and didn't care about any historical value. All of the one's I saw at gun shows either looked like they were dragged to the show behind a pick up truck. Or else they were ridiculously over priced for what they were, and looked nowhere near as good. Both of mine came with all of the accessories including bayonets, slings, ammo pouches. All in the new condition you see in the photos. Both of mine are very accurate, and the actions are typically Mauser.... Smooth as butter. They still have some available, albeit they're getting to be few and far between. And the prices have gone up some. But they still represent a good value for someone looking for a good shooting, nice looking, military Mauser rifle. A lot of "purist's" hate Mitchell's, and claim they falsely advertise their guns. I found that not to be the case at all. I wanted a nice looking, clean, Mauser rifle. That is exactly what Mitchell's delivered. Most every time I take mine to the range, I have people come up to me astounded at how nice they look, and immediately ask me where I bought them. Several members at my local club have since purchased them. And they all are very happy with what they got. If you're in the market for a good looking, good shooting Mauser rifle, don't hesitate to purchase one from Mitchell's. You won't be disappointed when you open the box.... Or pull the trigger at the range.
