Default Belgian M.1889/1936 Mauser Short Rifle

Alright, so I am new to the forum but would like to get a good price estimate on this Belgian M.1889/1936 Mauser Short Rifle as well as how rare this particular gun is, as i am considering selling it.....

Here is some other info on the gun, on the top of the bolt receiver it has "Manufacture D'Armes De L'Etat" inscribed on it. Also on the stock it has a Belgian mark stamped into the wood dated 1936. The gun has been fired and works flawlessly, the bore is also in very good shape. It also came with when bought a 1918 dated leather strap which it is shown with......
If there is any other information you need to know to give me a good estimate than let me know

Thanks!!!

Here are few pics of the gun(sorry for the bad quality of the pics)

Caliber and close ups of stamps. Use the flower on your camera for macro pics. Pics of front and rear sight also.

7.65 is not a typical Mauser round. It is a VG round. Rear sight looks correct as does the front. These rifles typicly sell for less then 8x57 or 6.5x55 Mausers. You should check out Gunboards for more accurate info. I've seen them sell in the $150.00 area.

The Argentineans used 7.65, but even the more modern Argentine rifles were converted to other calibers. The action on your rifle is not strong enough compared to A 95 or 98 action. Still a great piece, "if" you find the right buyer. That is why I suggested gunboards. I spent neither time or had to research the rifle. It is based on the '88 commission rifle.
