Isn't someone importing Mausers from whatever Yugoslavia is called now? EAA was the importer a few years back.

I agree they probably aren't worth much. That said, I would try shooting it. I've owned a few of the Higgins M98's and they were very accurate with the factory barrels. You might be about to spend a lot of money re-barreling a rifle that doesn't need it.

Here is one I did years ago. A .30-06 Higgins I bought for $350. I had big plans for it and then I shot it. I got honest MOA groups out of it with Remington factory ammo. The bluing was a little freckled but otherwise in good shape. I took the sights off, Cerakoted the metal, added a Timney trigger and dropped it in a McMillan stock. It's accurate and the balance is fantastic. I own a few custom rifles but always seem to grab this one.

I think the most I ever paid for a J.C. Higgins M50 was $350 The cheapest was free. It was in 30-06 and had a nice custom stock. I took a bad fall and I had the choice of saving my fat ass or the rifle. Saving the rifle meant that I would either be dead or crippled for life. The scope on the rifle was totaled as well. The rifle now sits i a Ramline stock and it's used as a bad weather gun.

Another m50 had been made into a 7x57 custom and I have three more. Just need to figure out what to rebarrel them to. All my customs are based on Mauser actions except for two.
