Default 1934 FN Mauser?

Hello everyone, first post. I recently acquired a FN mauser and I need some help getting some more info on it, i.e. what rounds it will accept, its history, and how much it is worth. The only thing I could find on the internet was that FN pre-WW2 mausers (if you can call them that) were of a very high engineering and manufacturing standard.

My grandfather acquired the rifle over 30 years ago and it has pretty much been collecting dust since then, so it is in good condition (the kar98k-style bolt still operates smoothly) with all of its original components in place (from an amateur visual inspection). The wood has a rich, dark tone to it. As far as markings, there is a "2" on the side of the trigger guard, the number "3244" on the side of the metal part, a "Fabrique d' Armes" logo, as well as the words "Oviedo" and "LC", and the year "1934" all stamped in the metal.

See the attachment for a picture (poor quality, sorry) of the rifle.

Thanks for any help ahead of time!

You have a Spanish Mauser built by Oviedo Arsenal some time between 1893 and 1951. There were many versions of the Spanish Mauser some built by Loewe and others built by Oviedo as was yours. The models run from the M1893 Rifle, M1893 Short Rifle, M1895 Carbine, M1916 Short Rifle, M1916 Carbine, and a M1916 chambered for 7.62 cartridge.
Values run from EXC $500 to Poor $125. If the Spanish Crest is not there or has been ground off you lose $100 in value. You would have to give me barrel length and other information such as length of wood forearms, type of bolt, and caliber, and condition for a complete appraisal. Without looking inside or in the barrel I could only give you a in the ball park value.

You really need better pics of all the parts, it is difficult to say anything. It could be a Model 1922, 1924. or 1930. Caliber would either be 7x57 or 8x57 if it have the Belguin crest.

Unfortunately it will be quite a while before I can get more pictures of the rifle. I will definitely post them when I do, though.
