I'd rather get a German K98 back from Stalingrad for $179.....
Prices came down.

They are usually in nice shape, although the bolts never match (russians separated them) and they have electropencil marks...

They are true K98's with swastikas, waffenmarks(sp?) or droop wing eagles.... and mfgrs codes...

The Mitchell Mausers are mostly M48s

Just my opinion..

Mitchel

I got one last year and they are worth every penny. It's a very nice m-48a.

Just my thought--The mitchell are very nice looking. Actually too nice. They are over done in restoration and that lowers the value to a collector. MY OPINION. The appeal to the "I want it to look like a Rem 700BDL" crowd. They are overpriced.
I got a all matching unissued M48 for about $100 that looks great but not over the top finish(ie not all glossy) shoots fine. I believe it came with a bayo (I would have to check my records) and did have accesories.

For less money I got a much mre realistic gun of that type.

But the michells are pretty--If that is what you want

I understand they are unissued? not shined up.

M48 Mauser

Mitchell mausers are M48 Yugo guns. They are mint, but everybody has the same gun and for much less. I just picked a mint M48 from Big 5 in Concord, CA for $149.00. It is nice, to say the least. Look around you can find them around and at much money.

Pick up a WW 2 Russian Capture K98 from AIM, SOG, Coles, FAC, Century and I/O for around $200. FWIW, you can pick up a nice Yugo M48 from Century for less than $100. I think that I paid $70 for mine last year.

I had purchased a "garrison grade" from them. All the parts numbers matched, but didn't have all the accessories, as I don't do WW re-enactments, didn't think it worth it.

Ends up I have yet to shoot it, have too much fun shooting my M1 since I got it back from Dean's Gun Restoration (shameless plug).

If you're interested, I can sell it for $150 +s/h

If you want some pics, even just as for cusiosity sake, drop me a line.

Quality

Worked in a small local gun store for five years. We had many Mitchell Mausers come through our store for pickup by the purchasers.

We had to log them in, so we looked at every one. Without exception they "looked" good, and the kits looked to be complete.

Have no idea what the buyers paid for them, but to the best of my recollection, _every_ buyer was satisfied.
