South American/Central American/Mexican bolt action Mausers
« on: November 05, 2008, 08:53:20 AM »
Anyone have or like these guns?  I have been looking for a Mexican Mauser, preferably one from 1910-1920 revolution era.  They tend to be hard to find and beat or sporterized though.  I missed one at $300ish recently >:

I had a 1908 Brazilian rifle in 7x57 but it had some issues so it went bye bye, I like that cartridge a lot. 

I currently have a Brazilian Mauser 08/34 in .30-06, it kicks like a mofo!  Steel buttplate and short barrel.

I use slip on recoil pads when I am feeling wimpy.

I'm putting limbsavers on my 700's right now.
They sure don't grind as easy as other pads.
I think I need to freeze it before grinding.

What model?  Price?  Crest intact?

That would have to be perfect with an intact crest for me to pay that.  I once bought an 1891 model but with a cut down foreend for $50 in 2001.

Also I passed an ok full length rifle 1891 with scrubbed crest for $100 this year.  It was an antique but I know the shop would have made me DROS it anyways ::)

It was in very good condition - I didn't pay too much attention because I was interested in something else the seller had -

I just sold a 1909 Argentine action with bottom metal and a bunch of target rifle parts to my auto shop instructor.
One of those projects where I collected all the parts, but never did the work to finish it out.
It sure is nice to have the free space in the bottom of my closet to shove more ammo cans into.
