That's a good deal even on a good refinish. Has it still got a bayonet lug?

The vendor also had a mint K98 made in 42, all matching too, just so expensive though, sadly

That's good. One arsenal cut off the bayonet lugs for carbines going to police units after re-building. Yours stayed in military reserve and were some of the last to be sold as surplus and imported by FIE.
I'll trade you my un-rebuilt 1909 rifle and pay shipping for both of us ??

I appreciate the offer, but I’m going to keep it

One of my old pals had a Peruvian 1909 apparently never in battle. Had the crest and an unpolished finish but nice deep blue. As crude as I thought the sights were, he knew how to shoot it, usually with military solids. He used commercial 170 grain softpoints for deer and elk, and I witnessed a remarkable single shot kill of an antelope. He used the elevator sight on prairie dogs, getting the range set until he nailed one, then he was done.
