I'm thinking about getting a surplus 8mm Mauser and was wondering if theres anything specific that I should look for, or stay away from. Local Gun show tomorrow, which I know will be overpriced, but the wife and I are going after work.
She needs a new 9mm semi auto DA/SA with rail. I was going to get her a Baby Eagle Series 2 Polymer semi-compact, but I can't find one anywhere. Not even on GB. Figured maybe theres a slim chance that we'll find one at the Fun Show, or at least something else that she likes as much as the Baby Eagle.
I'm also looking for a Ruger 10/22 or Marlin Model 60 .22LR. I loved the Marlin when I was younger, and the Model 60 was my first rifle ever. I've owned a few over the years, but I haven't had one since the late 90's. Time for another. Everyone keeps telling me to get the Ruger though, because of the aftermarket support. I guess it will come down to if I find a decent deal on one or the other.
Sorry, I'm kind of rambling. Any advice on the Mauser would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
