As stated there was minor pitting. Also has 2 cracks in the stock 1 in the for grip and 1 in the tang. Gun was very dirty and gritty. Bore looks good. Gun is better that the stock picture on web site. Thanks.
So far so good. I've only put 50 rounds through it (old 1950's surplus ammo from the Dominican Rep.). As expected, the rifle arrived filthy from years of storage. After getting it cleaned up (the bore on mine was actually much brighter than I expected), I checked and made sure the head space was OK (I've seen a few if these old Spanish Mausers with excessive head space that are not safe to shoot). The rifle is definitely well used, with some minor pitting and surface rust and some nicks on the stock. As stated in the product description, it has no crest on the receiver (possibly 'scrubbed' after the Spanish Civil War??). Mine did come with a cleaning rod, although it was a little bent on the end. It's not the smoothest Masuser action I've ever used, but overall, it shot fine (only had it out to about 50 yds). I'll probably only shoot this rifle occasionally - I bought it mainly for it's history and because I thought the price was pretty good. Overall, I'm happy with my purchase.
On a related note, J&G offers a 100 rd box of surplus ammo for $30 when you purchase this rifle. The box I got is Round Nose - FN w/1936 head stamps and it's pretty cool looking old ammo (I almost don't even want to shoot it). For safety reasons, I don't plan on shooting any modern ammo through this rifle. Only old surplus stuff I can find or cartridges I hand load myself.
