Allan's Armory had a small handful a week or two ago but they sold out in hours. I was thinking of getting one as well but I am following a 12 step progam. Gotta get yourself on the C&R mailing lists to be able to catch those deals before they are gone.
I've got one for sale. It's an 8mm Mauser '93 in good shape. I cleaned the cosmo; redid the stock, applying four coats of BLO (boiled linseed oil); and am about to wax it with Tom's 1/3 Mix. Bore is bright (I ran patches through for an hour or so just to be sure), action works smoothly (it is a Mauser), and, yes, it does show it's age a bit in terms of blueing (about 60%). I"m in Riverhead, but don't mind driving for FTF transfer (with driver's license, of course.) I may have had a chat with the member who began this post, but we seemed to have lost track of each other. I'm not sure he's still in the market.
Oh, and I was one of the people who helped Allan's Armory sell out of the ones he had. If anyone is interested in that, I'd be willing to talk, but it needs de-greasing and stock needs cleaning up (to make it "bootiful".
