    The Chinese Mausers are fairly interesting. They were built before WW2 by the German companies and sold to the Imperial Chinese and later were used by the army of Chang Ki Sheck (sp?) and some were built during the war by Chinese arsenals. The latter are not great quality but perform well enough.

    For a WW2 re-enactment piece I would buy a real German Mauser and use it. Modifying the Chinese rifle to look German will end up costing as much as a German one. You can usually find de-milled WW2 German Mausers and Mauser parts guns for under $200 and sometimes under $150. A Yugo M-48 Mauser will be very close to what you need and can be had cheap as well as Czech VZ24 Mausers.

    chinese mausers

    i already have three real German mausers, all in good condition, none of which cost me over 100 dollars, this Chinese rifle would serve as a loaner and its conversion should cost me almost nothing as I am gun smith (army trained) and have all the tools and parts available the Chinese Mausers were going for about 30 dollars each a while ago. a mauser rifle for reenactment doesnt need to have matching numbers or Nazi proofs a bright bore or a fabulous finish or a beautiful stock. it just has to pop primers on blanks and feed and extract them

    I thought u guys were referring to the classic Mauser semi-automatic pistol, with its distictive large box magazine. It was a favorite of the Russian Bosheviks and later the Chinese communist 8th route Army. Mauser's pistol was designed around the same period as the famous Luger, was just as effective and equally impressive although it never achieved the same fame.
