    Default mint bnz 45...

    After a horrible Maxx show where everything went wrong, I didn't have much hope for an auction I attended today that had one 98k that a friend told me about. It was the only rifle being auctioned. Everybody knows how these things go. Bad rifles fetching big prices with bidders who have no idea. I went to look at the gun a month ago. A stone mint S block with cosmolene caked on parts and filling the bore. They told me they didn't usually handle guns. I am feeling good. Then they switch the auction from one week to another....I can see the dark cloud hovering. I look last nite at auction pics and do not see the rifle....Maybe good as no one but me will know it is there..

    Today I get there and there are only about 25 people bidding. Auction starts at 8, gun should go around ten. I see two guys pick up MY GUN. I immediately curse them... Finally they get to the gun. Nobody starts at $75....it goes down to $25..I start...me and some guy behind me who doesn't look real interested. We go in 2 dollar increments. I look back at him and smile. He defers to me...it is mine...My god the lowest price Mauser or gun I have ever bought...I could have paid with change.... When they put it in my lap I almost cried like a school girl..

    There is hope for rifles not costing in Thousands..it just took me 25 years to finally do it.
    I know they are common so I won't post many pics unless somebody really wants to see it. Triggerguard and floorplate marked byf.

    Thats a great bnz and you can't beat the price. Now go out and buy a lotto ticket before the mojo is gone.

    Default Thanks for all the positive comments

    I will take some pics with my real camera tomorrow and post. IPhone pics aren't too bad for quick looks.

    Hey everyone gets a lifetime deal at least once!

    Great score and yes post pics. Makes up for losing that jhv44 from that dealer.
