The oval hole on the left side of the receiver is a characteristic of the 1916 Spanish Mauser, a small ring Mauser that began life as a '93. The hole is a vent that was added when the old '93's were rearsenaled and converted in Ovieto, Spain in approx 1916. They originally were in 7mm Mauser (7 X 57). That scope mount is ratty as hell and it looks like the rear receiver hump has been ground off to accomodate the scope base. The wood looks like it could be cleaned up nicely though.

I agree with SNAKEDRIVER the oval hole give this away as a 1893 mauser derivitive.

yea the scope mount is rough for sure.......but at 21 with no money in my pocket, I took anything dad would give me.

this is the rifle I learned that I really really did not like to deer hunt with!


Thanks for all the input gentlemen, appreciate it for sure
