Turd alert! Refinished and looking great!

As the sellers title says...”Refinished and looking great.” My first turd alert post and hope I chose wisely. I guess this is more comical than an attempt to fool collectors. It’s out there though being stated as the real deal.

Cav, we usually have an annual contest for the biggest turd spotted for sale. I think last year or year before I gave away a sight good as grand prize for grande turd spotting. I doubt this one can be topped. It certainly can’t be polished any more. You’ve really raised the bar here for yourself and everyone else. I find this almost incredible.

...and for starting price of $389.99 it can be someone’s grenade. If the outside is any inclination of the headspacing, I’d be worried to shoot this Frankenstein. I agree, it looks like a few different rifles put together. I never saw a byf code, G date code, and 1940 year marked K98k-ish. guys do a contest on these?! That’s a really fun idea and hilarious 😂! I’m proud that my submission went over so well with everyone that I set the bar high 🤣. Not to mention brought a lot of joy to so many.
I know I have a lot to learn, but there’s no mistaking this as not genuine article. This was up on GB a few months ago and forgot about it. Was selling then for around $1200+/- starting bid back then. I can see it didn’t sell. When I saw it pop up again in my gunbroker emails I thought this was perfect for turd alert. I wonder if anyone would buy it if it was at a penny start? Maybe just for a laugh I’d buy it for a penny, lol.
Since I don’t want to clog up the thread replying to everyone, im happy to get to know all of you over time here. Thank you for the warm welcome and enjoying the post along with me.
@M1903A3 that angry defs head kills me 🤣
@Warrior Thomas the Train engine meme is hilarious as well. I’ve seen you guys use those before an honored to have them on my post...I know I did well, lol.
