Looking for information - Help please
I have these two rifles that i know very little about. I would greatly appreciate it if someone could help me gain some information.
Sorry the photos are crappy. I tried by best to get decent shots but as you can tell i failed.
Rifle Number 1

The only markings on this rifle is 2242 on the bolt and receiver, and on the underside by the trigger there is a 5395

The rifle is 40'' long and the rifling looks great.

I am trying to figure out what rifle this is. What it is chambered in, when it may have been made, etc etc

Rifle #2

This rifle appears to be sort of similar to the other one. It has a R marked on the top right behind the adjustable sight. It also has a M466 on the receiver by the bolt and a 466 on the bolt. I imagine it has been restocked.

The rifling looks great on this rifle as well.

I appreciate your time for reading this. Hopefully someone can help me gain some knowledge. I am young and dumb so i will apologize now, but thank you once again.

Don't apologize. I'm not sure what they are either and I'd also like to know.

I'd guess Mausers of some type, but I really haven't a clue. Better photos may be necessary, however the folks here are very knowledgeable and may not need them.

I can get better pictures if they are needed. Thanks again.

what caliber, and where did you get them from?

Boyerracing343 05-20-2011 04:19 PM

I don't know what caliber they are. That's one thing i am trying to figure out.

The gun that is more beaten up looks kind of like a Spanish Mauser of some sort,but them again i could be totally wrong.

Lets see some close ups of the markings. The second one is a small ring Mauser, so could be a sporterized Spanish 93.

In at work right now. I'll post some pictures of the markings tonight. Thanks for the input m14rock.

Cool beans. I will look forward to seeing them.

Here is two more photos of the rifle that has been restocked.

The rifle that is more beat up also has the same R underneath the wooden cover that surrounds the adjustable sight.

No other markings on are either gun other than the numbers that are listed in the previous posts.

Gotta be more markings. How about under the rear sight? Floorplate? Under the wood? Barrel?
