I was on my way to a friend's knife shop and stopped at a pawn shop that never helps me. The clerks are ok but the manager sits up in a cube looking at his monitor(playing solitare probably). I saw this in the case and asked the guy what he would take for it. He had to go ask the overseer. He came back with the number and I agreed. As soon as I pulled out my debit card, the manager came down from his lookout tower and asked for ID and took my card to scan it. Anyway I got them, they said the handle was spraypainted on and it was rusty and ugly. A little Flitz and steel wool, handles are tin and came out very shiny, missing the button and spring but I don't have a mauser. Always wanted one but never wanted to pay what people were asking.
