I purchased a M-48 Mauser from Mitchell's Mausers back in the spring. It is an unissued and practically new carbine version of the venerable (M-?) German Mauser. Shot it for the first time today, shouldn't have though. I've had a shoulder problem for the past 4 weeks, my M. D. thinks it's a torn rotator cuff. Only fired 10 rds. held approx. 3" groups at 50 yd. with 1 flyer each. Anyway the shoulder felt the recoil.
My problem is this, I've got the "short arm disease" Can't see that triangular frontsight very well. I've read about bolt in scope mounts that attach at the rear sight without altering the weapon. Does anyone have experience with this type of scope mount?
Also ran a few rounds through my brace of 45's. Tried double taps on the Para Tac-Four LDA. Tried to work the trigger by releasing it until it reset instead of doing a "slap" motion. Quit trying after punching holes in the pecan tree limb just in front of the orchard range we use at our hunting club. Anyway after firing the Colt Commander, Para-Ord, Kimber Custom CDP II w/laser grips, and the Taurus PT145. The Kimber still is the favorite, even had an offer of $1,350.00 by one of our club members. I smiled and declined, I can't sell on of my children. :wink:
