My Brother-in-law bought one a few years back. He is really pleased with it. It was a real good price too.

I bought one several years ago as a gift for a young history buff. I should have kept it and let him get his own... or just bought two of them. The one that I got had been cleaned up and is a beauty. If you're wanting it to use or to have as a sort of historical item, you won't go wrong buying from Mitchell's.

I hear good things and bad things about them all over the web. They're overly pricey, invented their own "tanker" model Mauser, and most of their 98Ks are actually Yugo 24/47s and Yugo 48s.

That being said, what they have are totally beautiful, new or basically arsenal-refinished Mausers that will satisfy any collector. Even their "tanker" Mauser with the short barrel - to match the never-madej-nor-issued "tanker" Garand - is actually a convenient, maneuverable hunting arm. that could use a Magnaport job or a similar compensator to reduce muzzle blast on the shooter.

I wish I could afford a couple of them. Their attention to detail is terrific, and the finishes are immaculate. Imagine having a NIB Karabiner 98, with all the correct accouterments, 70 years later, like finding the key to an overlooked 1930s arsenal warehouse! Nice!.

I've never heard anything bad about them at all. Every one of my friends who has bought one from them has nothing but praise for their service and their product, so I'd say they're trustworthy.
