What model is this and is it worth $300? It is a very neat, though the wood is rough 8 mm rifle with the famous Mauser both action. It comes up nicely and sights well. He also has one that has been sporterized very well with a Mauser action but I don't know if it was Russian or not for $225. That is a lot lighter and with the modern sights, it comes right up steady as can be. I love my Mosins, but wonder about other Russian models. Thanks for your help.

Yep thats what it sounds like and it's to much money to pay for it.
You can find nicer Mauser 98's at Classic Arms and I'm so sleepy I can't think of other sites. Sorry....A.H

Mausers are very good rifles...and 8mm is a great round for hunting and killing paper. For $300 though I'd go buy 3 Mauser rifles or 3 Mossins.

while you can buy 3 mosins for $300, you wont buy 3 k98 mausers for that.

Maybe not k98s...but other very similar version of Mausers perhaps from Czechoslovakia or other country which produced the Mauser.
