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!
