I recently bought a Spanish Mauser from a friend who was hard up for cash as a restoration candidate for a fairly decent price due to his situation. I consider it a restoration candidate because of his "cleaning up" of the metal. It seems as though he has scrubbed the **** out all the metal parts with a green scour pad or steel wool. If I could get a bit of details on the rifle from some experienced collectors I would be very grateful. I have been doing internet research for the last two nights and aside from a plethora of history I have hit a dead end. So far it seems that I have a 1916 short (21") rifle with a 1893 bolt and a 1931 date stamp. One of the things that puzzles me is the round bottom bolt. Any more information would be welcome so that I may order the correct parts. I am attaching some pictures.
