Just curious if there's a serial study or something lurking around, couldn't dig one up through searching. I just picked up a fairly high one, I think. I won't have the rifle for a few days though so no pictures.

Ahh ok, I had it in my head it was 30k produced, didn't know it was 50, in that case never mind :) This one is in the 29k range and my other is in the 11k's.

The data quoted in MMRotW is totally in error. The correct information can be found in Jon Speed's "The Mauser Archive", and in Wolfgang Seel's history of the Mauser firm published in Zurich in the late 1980's. The quantities published in both books use primary source data published in the annual reports of Mauser's Board of Directors: A total of 5,000 Peruvian M1909's were made in 1909, and 26,800 in 1910. Total production was 31,800 rifles, none made after 1910. No carbines.
Regards,
John
