    Well, your Mauser looks better than mine, if that makes you feel any better. :)

    It's not your rifle, it's your V.A.T.S. skill.

    :D

    hehe.

    iron buttplate and full power rifle rounds hurt, huh?

    i still remember the first time i shot a short barreled shotgun with 3.5" slugs. yup, that left a mark...

    anyhow, one piece of advice on shooting Mausers, K31s, Enfields,...: pull the butt snugly into your shoulder before you fire! if you don't, it will recoil harder and leave more severe bruising!

    For just the gun and nothing else, you'd probably pay around 2000-2100 euros in Switzerland itself.

    The price in other countries vary wildly.

    I got fairly screwed by the Greek crisis, because it caused the CHF to rise in value compared to the Euro. Ended up paying 300 euros more than first budgetted when I ordered it due to that. Bummer.

    I ended up paying 3500 for the package (a lot of accessories are not pictured). Think the rifle itself was around 2750-2800 euros. Keep in mind that mags alone are like 75 euros a pop. (can be had a lot cheaper second hand though)

    A used Sig 550 goes for about 1500-1700 euros in the EU.

    3500 Euros? 75 Euros for a mag? Uh...

    Well, I'm happy with my $880 AR-15 and my $9 mags. :P

    How much is the .223 ammo there?

    The .30 Carbine is expensive. Even the .223 is cheaper.

    I just love the idea of a modernized M1 carbine, though. :D

    And I could actually use this one for large varmint extermination.

    My low rent 1911A1 made by Rock Island Arsenal manufactured in the Philippines. For a pistol that costs $430.00, its pretty sturdy and shoots clean.
