Very rough condition, stock is cracked in several places, safety screw and sight screws are striped out. Parts missing from sight, no cleaning rod which is what actually holds the bands in place indirectly. Not worth the money I wouldn't recommend.
Overall rifle functions, lots of rust and pitting and one (1) "large" crack in the stock at the recoil lug.
Do not think that big of a crack is repairable to make the rifle safe to shoot! May just repair & restore for a wall hanger. Did not know the cracks to be that large.
This is my 3rd Spanish Mauser from J & G have I'm very disappointed this time.
My first was a 7.62 Nato conversion for around $130 & that was fine. My 2nd was in original 7mm for $180 & that was passable, but this 3rd one is highly disappointing & isn't worth the money.
The metal is mostly OK although the butt plate is very rusty. The bore looks dark & worn, there's not too much cosmoline & everything is therea apart from the cleaning rod (as advertised)
The stock....well I've never had a stock this bad & it still be in one piece. Every bit of the stock is cracked or split & there's 2 chunks missing.
Right now I consider it unshootable as I'm worried the stock might disintegrate completely under recoil.
There's probably a working rifle in there somewhere but it's going to take some work & it is NOT in "Good Condition". IMO it should be described as a borderline "Poor" & sold for $140 max. It isn't worth the $180 J & G are charging.
