Just picked up my 4th mauser rifle, my Brazilian 30'06. this gun is SWEET! It got sporterized by a gunsmith so it's done profesionally, and he tamper with the iron sight at all. He even left the hood sight in the front too. I got this baby for a deal, also has a simmons 3-9X32 scope onit and it only costed me $250 the same amount I paid for my k98. can'y wait to take it to the range!
