Got my Mauser today....exterior looks like it was dragged through the Jordanian desert behind a tank, but very good inside.

I found mine on an online store on GunBroker, Soveriegn Guns. Good people. They seem to give pretty honest descriptions of their guns.

Does the bolt lock up when you shoot it? Mine does, and it takes a good whack on the handle to work the bolt. Fairly smooth before it's fired though.

Not a good sign. Check your receiver lug areas for setback. It results in excessive headspace and potential future problems. Ron

I ran 10 rounds through it yesterday. No lockup or signs of excessive headspace.
Accuracy was poor but I believe it is because there is excessive play in the rear sight. It has lots of lateral movement. I managed 4 of 5 shots onto a paper plate at about 75 yds. I'm confident it will improve after I replace the sight. I'm also considering firing some lapping bullets through it and reworking the muzzle crown.

Mine was just as accurate, I picked up a Norge barrel from Cole's Distributing and will get it rebarrelled. The original barrel is pitted something awful, the crown is nicked bad and the rear sight is a little loose as well.
