    Mauser which is chambered in 30 ought 6. It's a German byf 44 receiver. Made by mauser oberndorf in 1944.

    The 06 round is too long for your standard Mauser receiver. Note what Norway did to use the 30.06 in the Mauser rifles surrendered by German forces after the war. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kongsberg_M59

    In another 100 years even Mitchell's Mausers are 100% original, but that's another story, and none of us will be here to worry about it......

    What you do with things you own is no one's business but yours, unless or until you make the decision to part with an item, and then fail to make known that you made modifications to your collectible to enhance it's value, in this case creating a bogus sniper, apparently solely in order to...

    There is no excuse, or justification, for this despicable behavior / conduct among your fellow collectors. It forever sullies the reputation of any man involved in such an egregious act. What were you thinking ??????

    A 100% spot on observation of a complete and totally dishonorable / inexcusable act, done, it is my belief, to pass it as original to the unsuspecting, for monetary gain..... The maximum effective range of the lame excuses this man comes up with, who did this, is ZERO meters.

    I am sorry to have to break the news to you, but your actions, and failure to disclose how the rifle became a sniper, when offering it for sale, while knowing full well it is NOT an original, as built, sniper, are both dishonest and dishonorable. Please do not try to put lipstick on a pig...

    One has to either reject this behavior outright or watch the hobby turn into a "Shit Show Circus"..... What is the difference between passing counterfeit $20.00 bills, and deliberately creating a fake sniper, to peddle as original ????? Now, if he had done this to keep it in his own...

    Where there is money to be made by "ENHANCING'' a piece of history, there will always be those who will sell their honor, and integrity, for 30 pieces of silver.... Nothing in this world changes basic human nature...... Thirty pieces of silver was the price for which Judas Iscariot betrayed...
