Mauser reference site or book

Post by srqsteve » Mon Oct 29, 2012 9:05 pm

Does anyone know of a good reference site for Mausers or maybe a book that I should get? I have a friend who has asked me to help him sell his (4 total) and I know very little about them. Don't know what they are worth.

There are a variety of Mauser boards and you can always type the model/maker/country of each Mauser into the Curio and Relic section search on Gunbroker to see what some are selling for.

The WWII K98k are a subject to themselves in the Mauser world.
If you post what you have here I can give you an idea [smilie=pdt_xtremez_23.gif]

+1 for Wulfmann.... i have this one and it is pretty much a Mauser Bible: Mauser Bolt Rifles, by Ludwig Olsen http://www.amazon.com/Mauser-Bolt-Rifle ... dwig+olson
It ain't cheap though and is a Collectors/Historians guide, not a gun valuator.... for that the Blue Book of Gun Values will kinda get you in the ballpark: http://www.amazon.com/Blue-Book-Gun-Val ... gun+values
Good Luck! jim

I've found the Blue Book to be pretty bad on milsurps.

Why not list the rifles, maker, dates, model, condition here and we can tell you. Having bought and sold over 100 Mausers I might have a fair idea of what some are worth.

A big +1 on the above.....the "Blue Book" isn't even close to actual selling prices......
