Tactial Mauser

I’ve seen some funny stuff on gunbroker before, but this takes the cake:

http://gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.asp?Item=115020625

Seller GaryE. provides the following description…

UP FOR BID IS A 8X57MM TACTICAL SPORTER CARBINE MAUSER. THE BARREL IS CUT AT 18” THE STOCK HAS BEEN CUT DOWN AND A RECOIL PAD AND LEATHER CHEEK REST INSTALLED ON THE BUTT AND A PICATINNY RAIL INSTALLED UNDER THE FOREARM SECTION. THE REAR SIGHT HAS BEEN REMOVED AND A PICATINNY RAIL INSTALLED. IT ACCEPTS WEAVER RINGS. THE BOLT HANDLE IS LEFT STRAIGHT SO AS THE GUN CAN BE OPERATED BY EITHER A LEFTY OR A RIGHTY. THE STRIPPER CLIP NOTCH IS CLEAR SO AS THE GUN CAN BE LOADED BY STRIPPER CLIP. OH AND YES THAT’S A M16 BAYONET YOU SEE ATTACHED TO THE BARREL. ITS PROBABLY THE ONLY MAUSER IN THE WORLD THAT ACCEPTS AN M16/AR15 BAYONET. THE FLOOR PLATE IS INGRAVED WITH GOLD LETTERING. THE LIGHT& PRESSURE SWITCH AND LONG EYE RELIEF SCOPE WITH ILLUMINATED RETICLE ARE NOT UP FOR BID AND DO NOT COME WITH THE GUN. BUT CAN BE PURCHASED AFTER THE AUCTION, AS CAN THE AMMO POUCHS, STRIPPER CLIPS AND SLING. THIS IS A QUICK HANDLING TACTICAL RIFLE THAT WEIGHTS 8 LBS. AND IS FUN TO SHOOT. IF YOU DON’T WANT THE BAYONET AND LUG OR YOUR STATE DON’T ALLOW IT. IT CAN BE REMOVED AND I’LL MAKE A PRICE ALLOWANCE FOR THAT. no sale to calif.

And now the pictures:

Its funny how the technology on this gun spans over a century. (Mauser Wiki)

It never sold (surprise surprise), so it can still be yours for the low price of $350 :P

Tactical? I can’t imagine any Army or Police force who would begin to issue such a “Piece of Crap”. Hmmmm? This “Tactical POS” or an “M1A”. Hmmmm?
The sad part is (besides the fact that another fine old rifle got trashed) this guy is proud of what he has done. “Bubba made it Gooder”. Did he upholster the stock?????
$350 for this “POS” is a bit too high. Even if you could fix it, it would cost more than the gun would be worth when you were done.
Thanks Bubba, you just made my guns go up in value be reducing the total number available by one.

Who made this? Was it Will Hayden of Red Jacket? “We’re opening up a new market.”
