Default 1891's

I just received a free one a couple summers ago (sporterized) the fella running the pawn shop dident want to mess with it and said I could have it if I'd do the paper work, Mine was built in 1900 and all #'s match i wouldent mind replacing the cut stock
I found that who ever traded the Mauser to the shop dident know how to remove the bolt and they broke the bolt stop & they dry fired it so much the fireing pin was broken, It now has a replacement fireing pin and a replacement bolt stop and its in good working order
These old mauser rifles have a pretty frail looking fireing pin which is pretty hard as compared to a Mauser model 98 like compareing a tooth pick to a bridge spike.
I'd recomend not dry fireing the 1891 at a minimum of a slip up once in a great while one may get by without damage.
