    WTS 1893 Mauser

    Please delete, lack of interest, MOVED




    A 1893 Mauser 7x57? (Mauser Espanol Modelo 1893) MFG Loewe, Berlin. Crest Berlin 1896. matching barrel and action serial 5153, non matching bolt and floor plate. action is tight. wood is not original finish is worn, barrel is cut down 23 inches. Gun came to me in pieces as shown, rear sight was ground down, gun seems to work as it should, shipping at your expense to your FFL

    That is a scant stock is for a US M1903/1903A3 and the ring on the receiver that secures the rear of the upper handguard, stamped swivels and upper band also. The front stock bolt hole has been hogged out to get clearance for the screw. Does the recoil lug on the receiver contact the recoil shoulder on the stock? Why they ground on the rear sight versus just removing it is puzzling, most are soldered on and can be removed by heating. Maybe Bubba didn't have a propane torch. In another post you asked about a problem with the safety and I have seen a few dozen 93/93 Mausers and don't remember a shiny bolt shroud or checkered safety, every time I look at the pic of those my brain keeps thinking Swede. Maybe I haven't seen enough of them, curious if some were like that.

    The safety works fine now, and it says espanol on action, and yes the stock is not original?

    Cocking piece/safety and probably bolt smells like a swede, like Rich/WIS says.

    Not to be negative, however pics too blurry to pick up any more fine detail.
    Is there a crown or 3 crowns stamped on the bottom of the bolt handle by the knob, or anywhere on the bolt, safety, or cocking piece?
