Hi everyone. This is my first post here, and it's a bit of a doozy. A gentleman recently offered to sell me his Mauser for $150. Now, it has what appears to be a nickel plated barrel and action (I know....) and a non-original and unfinished wood stock, hence the price. I thought this was a steal, since at the very least, I would be getting a beautifully shooting rifle. I'm having a very difficult time identifying this rifle though, as it doesn't appear to have stamping in any of the usual places indicating it's origin. It's possible all of this was covered up during the plating process. The only identifying marks are on the bolt and top of the action (number 9371) and on what appears to be the bottom of the barrel (1846 dd?) I am fairly familiar with Mauser pattern rifles but have never seen anything with these marks. Furthermore, the 9371 marks are suspicious, as whoever stamped it ran out of room on the bolt and had to stamp the 1 beneath the rest of the numbers. I just have no idea what to make of this one, so if anyone has any suggestions, please drop them below. Thanks in advance!
