What you have is a Spanish Model 1895 mauser rifle. These are easily identified by the oval gas port on the left front side of the reciever and the location of the serial number. These were chambered in 7x57 mauser, HOWEVER yours could have been rechambered or rebarreled to any standard length cartridge. The large cutout you have pictured is the thumb clip loading slot, quite standard. The apparent absence of stripper clip lips is the result of some ham handed previous owner.

Any idea on where I can find a replacement bolt? I scoped the barrel and it is in very good condition with no pitting and very little to no wear on the lands and grooves. I do think this is a replacement after market barrel and not the original barrel.

DZ its very important to have a chamber cast and slug the bore to determine the caliber. Most all military mausers were never designed to be scoped so the bolt handles wouldnt clear the scope when lifted. There were two solutions to this problem, the least expensive was to grind the bolt handle till it cleared. The best method was to cut off old bolt handle and weld on a new one at an angle that would clear the scope. This is very likely what happened to your bolt handle, and was never finished. Bolt handles are avalible from major gunsmith suppliers and any compatent gunsmith can weld on the new handle. If you could find an original bolt handle it wont work with a scope.

3030 is right-it takes very little to weld another handle on.

Thanks guys

I'm very "uninformed" about bolt action rifles (read ignorant), now for y'all that don't know it that is not a slight against myself it means I don't know jack poo poo about bolt rifles and am smart enough to admit it. We don't really have a competent gun smith here in El Paso, my opinion, so I'll have to go outside to get this done. Again thanks for educating me.

Here you go, this guy does it cheaply and quick. Lots of guys use his bolts. I wouldn't hesitate to use one of his bolts. Jim's been around a long time.

Bent bolts for the Mosin Nagant and Mauser rifles

I've found this to be one of the best Milsurp websites around:
