Here they are. Two 8mm Mausers. One VZ24, one Kar98. Both have little blue left on exposed surfaces but no rust or pitting, even under the wood. Bores have strong rifling with dark grooves.
Stocks were very dark. I cleaned them with Easy Off (no sanding), then put three coats of Birchwood Casey True Oil, then three coats of wax. As you can see, they look great.
I'm interested in trading both of these for a Marlin Camp Carbine in 9mm in VG or better shape. 100% reliability is a must.
Here are a few pics. More available for anyone seriously interested.
