Mauser derivative

This design is a 1940s variation of an 1890s design. Nothing like the scary semi-auto rifles that the US prohibitionists fear. And yet, can you imagine them being OK with you or I having this rifle without interference?

Their end-game is less to restrict specific arms than to restrict people who aren’t them or their flunkies — in short, to expand the concept of “prohibited person” to encompass all of their political opponents and  all the neutrals. That’s how it is in other totalitarian countries: the high-ranking supporters of the ruling party get guns, the rest do not. It was that way in 1930s Italy and Germany and USSR, and it is that way in New York City now.

    I found my Mauser, complete with WWII German marks, in a cache in Vietnam. I bet nobody has a record of that serial number. Unfortunately, the bore is not in good condition. Still, in an emergency…

    Meanwhile, it hangs over my mantel, and starts interesting conversations.

    Not to be the Mauser Nazi (no pun intended) but that’s an interesting bolt handle, sling swivels and handguard on that “K98”.

    What’s the story behind those workman’s spectacles in the first picture? and why didn’t they along with the rest of the 30’s styling carry over to the second picture was that a metaphor of some kind? “what defended freedom then continues to do so now” sort of thing?
