for years Mitchell's Mausers have been using their
family connections in the search for WWII-era collectable Mauser Rifles,
Curios and Relics, for import to the United states to preserve history for
In the continuing search for the last collector grade
K98 Mausers, Don Mitchell hunts for the hidden treasure of WWII. The hope
here is to find preserved in - a time - capsule items, ones that are prized
by collectors everywhere. "we've emptied military warehouses before, but
never found anything like this!" commented Don Mitchell on his last
adventure in eastern Europe " some of this stuff is like fine
WWII ended well over 60 years ago! Why were these items
stored so long?
"You have to understand the communist
mind" explains Mitchell. In communist countries the military had no sense of
relative economic values; so, after WWII, they just continued to store
this stuff decade after decade, even after it was out-dated.
After the iron curtain fell in 1991, traders
rushed in to buy up the pieces from the new and cash-hungry governments.
"Those guys bought up some of the obvious stockpiles," says Mitchell with a
twinkle in his eye, "But they really didn't know where to go or how to
act" Also, because of internal wars and political uncertainties, some
interesting items are only just now available, if you know how to find
Mitchell's Mauser Collection of
Mauser K98 rifles offer a unique opportunity not available elsewhere for
a range of collectors from Gun collectors, Antique Collectors, to WWI &
II Souvenir's collectors. As for hunters, this rifle has proved its
reputation for accuracy in hunting.
And best of
all, an Original Mauser will only increase in value.
It is most unlikely that there any more of these products
available anywhere in the world. For collectors, the prospects of being able to
buy additional WWII collectible items like these that Mitchell found are
increasingly slim... not only because of the passage of time but also because
new and increasingly restrictive regulations make
importing extremely difficult. Basically, Collectors or interested
would-be collectors are advised to "get it now" while you still can. The
products are so rare that they increase in value every year. These kinds of
products are disappearing rapidly; just like the guys who used them.
Mitchell's last treasure of collector's grade rifles
intended for battle, then they lay in storage for years. Then, of course,
Mitchell came along and the rest is history!
