I am looking at a beautiful commercial 98 mauser. The only markings on the whole gun is the word "Forest" stamped on the front receiver ring.
This gun resembles a Interarms MKX but exhibits higher quality. The rear sight is milled into the barrel much like the pre 64 winchesters. The bluing is as deep as any I've seen. The wood to metal finish is perfect.
My best guess says that this gun was manufactured in Germany (JP Sauer or the like). Any body familiar with this "Forest" stamping or where it came from?
