Yes, basically Russian capture guns that are refinished to look pretty. People poo poo them because they are not original collector fare, but then thousands of people buy RC guns and strip the shellac off to make them look more "realistic" so whatever.Can someone give me quick rundown on Mitchell's Mausers? I remember hearing about how they should be avoided around a decade or so ago when I was looking for a K98k, but I never looked into them any more than that. From the way people would react so negatively to them around that time, I got the impression that they were taking non matching guns, scrubbing the numbers, and then "building" and refinishing "matching" rifles. Is that correct at all?
