Rebuilding a Mauser Weekend

I spent Memorial Day weekend down outside of Charlottesville as the guinea pig for Jack Landers and Paul Fritz’s new class on rebuilding an old Mauser into a modern deer rifle. Starting off with a K-98, we basically stripped it down to the receiver, got rid of the cosmoline and junk and rebuilt it with a new stock, bent bolt, scope, and trigger. After testing it at the range, we realized the throat erosion meant we were going to have to rebarrel it the following weekend. We just finished that and Paul Fritz emailed us an awesome range report about how his rifle performed.

I’ll be taking mine down to Lafayette Gun Club or the NRA range in the near future to sight it in and see how she shoots. I’m hoping for something similar to Paul’s results.

    Nope. Look into it. for example, i saw a Javelin Gun Works m4 for $230 on gi and evike. i see the exact same gun on mergatose for $210. Awesome price isn't it? well, look closely at the contents. gi and evike. They both include pack of bb's, dumb charger, and 9.6 1600 mAh battery. Megastore doesn't. Very small pack of bb's retail: 50 cents. Dumb charger: $10. And the 9.6 1600 mAh battery? $35 PLUS. Now compare the prices. GI and Evike saved you $25.50. 125% guarantee MY ASS

    I've seen Project Wonderful work for games I've played. Small onilne games that are good, but just don't have oodles of money from outrageous monthly membership costs, so they join Project Wonderful and their ads get seen by people who would be interested because they're already playing similar games... where they saw the ad. Since it's worked well for them, I can't see why it wouldn't work well the way you figure it.
