Mitchell Mausers is one that generally got bad press in the gun circles. However, if they could produce today what they were advertising then for the same prices to the general retail market....no O3 license discount... they would be given higher marks for the starting model K98's even without the lack of integrity factor weighed in. I'm not sure they still exist.
The Gibbs Military Collector's Club got a lot of people applying for their C&R license back in the day. They gave you step by step instructions and held your hand while filling out the paperwork. Gibbs had a newsletter, if you paid your dues and joined the club, and it was full of articles of all the "experts" as recognized by Tuco and whatever other gun message boards. I still got a stack of those insider publications with special offers to members only. No secret decoder ring was offered though..rats. Gibbs was a step child of Navy Arms which dealt in BP guns and bastardized milsurps and some non screwed with import milsurps.

Peace is that brief, quiet moment in history.......... when everybody stands around reloading.
