This is my oft-mentioned Mauser. I believe it was sporterized at some point post-WWII. You have to admit that regardless, she's a beaut-- before I got her, she was stored in a leather sheath in an attic for ten years. I wiped her off, cleaned her up, lubricated her, and she worked just fine. An incredibly well-made, tough piece of hardware, and the bane of hogs in the neighboring counties.
