Second pic, n is the serial number block, after they reached 9999 (most factories, most years) they would go to the next letter. Eagle over 214 is the waffenamt inspectors mark. Different number for a different inspector/region. P74 was a earlier version of the eagle over number inspection mark. JL

P72 is inspection mark for Mauser Werke in 1934. 214 is J.P. Sauer, 1935-36-37-38. Rifle made in 1941. Hmmmm! The N is part of serial number, they only used 4 numbers and then cahnged letter, in 1944 some went up to 5 numbers. The letter S (in script) looks like a very early mark used to indicate barrel is made for the new S bullet (.323), not used after very early 20's or even earlier. The #4 mark looks like a version of the WW1 "star" stamp used to indicate rifle made with contract parts and may not be part interchangable. It is different however so I cannot be sure.
At any rate it seems an older WW1 barrel, maybe NOS. was used. Its been inspected at two factorys and not used till 1941? or is a replacement! You do not show a serial of barrel, is it the same font as reciever? Hand stamped? Is this an RC rifle?

Thanks for the info guys. She's a mix-master. The barreled action, stock, barrel bands and rear sight all match. The other stuff seems to span time and space. I wouldn't mind finding a correct bolt. No import stamp; purchased in 1985-86 period. RC..is that like Mitchell's Mausers?
If so, then the answer would be no. The third photo is from the underside of the barrel. Sorry for the poor photo resolution.
