Default jumped the gun

Hello all. I'm new to the mauser scene but have collected european military rifles for some time now. The reason I've joined (and this doesn't mean I won't be back) is my recent mauser purchase. It appears to be a wierd one or maybe an undesirable one. I need help identifying it before proceeding with any work.

It is clearly labeled mauser but has a turn down bolt and chinese or korean (I never payed attention in school) markings in the stock.

Many thanks to anyone who participates.
Oh, thoughts on what I should do with it?

As it turns... the bolt doesn't match the reciever. anyt ideas?

hmm. No images. I'd like to see it. Maybe Hewbrew markings? Many captured Mausers made their way to help liberate and protect Israel after '48.

Mismatched parts are common, just rebuilds put together without regards to our later desire for all matched parts. Imagine that, they didn't even take us into account when they rebuilt them....

OK- this is a REAL stab in the dark- you may have (operative word there is MAY) a Hanyang Carbine, made by the Chinese in roughly the 1935-45 period. Patterned after the mauser 88. See also Chung Kai Shek rifle. Link for ya:
China

See anything there that looks like yours?

Where did you get it? I can think of an undesirable dealer that often provides mismatched Mausers to the unsuspecting.

Stock looks like those Brazilian ones I saw on Classic arms which are chambered in 7mm if I'm correct?

The markings appear to be the Imperial Japanese Mum. I'd say you have a collectors item there.

How much did you pay?

I threw $100- at it. Is that bad? firing pin is broken... but i also got a broomhandle with the deal (non-functional but clean... ish)?

The actual deal was $300 for the mauser, the broom and an Enfield I picked up for my friend. My friend paid $100 for the Enfield.

By the way... I need help with the broom.

$100 for a Mauser?!

No matter what it is, if it's a true mauser, it's worth more than $100. A firing pin is nothing to replace. Can you post a picture of the whole rifle?
