I'd like to see if there is enough interest to run a Mauser reference thread. Rules can be: All rifles and pistols of Mauser manufacture or design welcome, one per member per day! Posted weapons need to be in your current collection. No G88 rifles, Vergueiro, Kropatchek, or other weapons of impure bloodline allowed.
;)

Partial Index (rifles which are not mine are in blue) If you want your rifles added to this index, send me a list in the exact same format as below.
(The three digit number beginning each line is the post number. There is a list at the end of this post showing what posts are on which page.)​

To start: ZB made VZ98/29 Iranian long rifle, 7.92X57, made in 1930. All matching with correct sling, bayonet, scabbard, and replica Japanese frog (it now has a replica Iranian frog). Note the Springfield style stacking swivel on the front band and the swivel on the trigger guard (I guess the Iranians didn't like having an empty hole on the trigger guard). Imported by SARCO. Looks like new.​

WWI German Gewehr 98 long rifle, 7.92X57, 1916 Amberg. Bolt mismatch, no import marks, with replica sling, correct bayonet, scabbard, and WWII German frog with postwar Yugo strap added. Bayonet is S98n/a, one of several types that would be correct but the first design for the G98 rifle. Bayonet marked to 130th Pioneer Battalion, rifle not unit marked. The B on the stock stands for "buche" which means the stock is made of beech instead of walnut.

Here's my 1935 Brazilian. All matching, complete with sling, cleaning rod, bayonet and scabbard. Cleaning rod, bayonet and scabbard all numbered to rifle. Also includes a factory test fire target, numbered to the gun and dated.

Dan your Brazil 1935 is Awesome! May be even better than the Iranian 29's just in the fact I think it is the Last SA contract by Mauser before WW2 started.I had a short rifle but was not even close to being as nice as yours-plus you have the target and the hard to find 1935 bayonet!No offense on the 29 Iranian,but the Mauser banner wins out with me every time.

Beton,
Thanks for the compliment! I like this one a lot, it's pretty much my favorite. I don't know if it's ever been fired after the test fire, there's still cosmoline in the action. The workmanship on it is just superb. The only problem I have is that the target paper has become very brittle and is starting to break apart, and I don't know how to fix that. I've got a few others I'll be posting over the next days.
Take care,
Dan

Geladen--On your 1916 Amberg, who made the replica sling? If you do mind giving free advertising...otherwise please PM me, as I am looking for some. I am not particularly happy with the one I bought from a well known antique replica outfit, though it was not expensive. Thanks

Dan, I've had the problem of a brittle target with my Argentine Mauser 1909 test target, the simple solution is to frame the target, it will not cost you much

Good idea, thanks. Would it hurt to spray just a bit of water onto it first, so the paper will relax and uncurl? After it dries flat, I'll put it in the frame.

VZ33 and K98

Here are my two Mausers. One is a VZ33 carbine, and the other is a K98. The K98 is a byf43 and is a mismatch, but I've had good luck deer hunting with it. As you can see, the VZ33 is missing the rear sight. The only thing that I need to restore it is the rear sight base, and once I find it, I'll have it restored.

Hi Geladen,
That's also a good idea to laminate it. One way I was thinking of doing it is to take apart a picture frame and lay the target face down on the glass. Spray it with a little bit of distilled water so it lays flat, then use a toothpick and white glue to fix the tears. After it dries, put the backer board on it, then put the whole thing back into the picture frame. Also, what type of frog does it take? The ones like the regular K-98s, or one like the Argentine style? I imagine brown would be the correct color, yes?
Thanks,
Dan

Nothing prevents the more common Mausers from being beautiful, too. My M48BO looks like it was made last week.
I have a soft spot for the Yugoslavian rifles but truly havnt seen a poor looking Mauser yet..If forced to choose, SA contracts and the Persian would be my picK for most beautifuly made..but then theres the Swedes and the ....; )

We are very lucky the amount of pristine Yugo rifles that found their way to us here in the states...there condition and price I'm sure fostered my love for them..as with Turk bayonets the interesting variations have also added to the affair!

C'est le mien

Here's my Romanian "capture." It's a '39 DUV with a straight bolt. The barrel's seen heavy use and has been counter-bored, but it can still hit the target pretty well at 100 yds. with 50s yugo ammunition.

I'll have to show my new 24/47 later when I get here cleaned up. :) I'm very happy with her, these guns are pristine!

Very interesting. I'm not sure I understand. Do you mean this is a K98k that got mixed in with the VZ24 rifles imported from Romania? Somewhere it picked up a straight bolt, maybe from a VZ24?
Yup, that's what must have happened. Of course the Germans had some straight bolts in their k98s too, because beggars can't be choosers in war.

Yugoslavian Model 24 short rifle. 7.92X57 made in 1937. All-matching, with original sling, unissued, still has the original amber schallec!













Polish Wz29 short rifle. 7.92x57 made in 1935. All-matching, all-original polish numbers and stock markings (no german marks or numbers).











Belgian MLE35 7.65X53 made by Fabrique Nationale in 1940. Crown over receiver crest. All-matching with original black paint finish.



Sorry, I can't find the other pictures I took of the Belgian so that is all I can give you.

Since nobody else is adhering to the one Mauser per member per day rule, we'll just throw that rule out the window. Here's my second for today:

Brazilian DWM M1908 long rifle, 7X57, made c.1908. All matching, no import marks, with generic sling, correct bayonet, scabbard, replica frog, and correct muzzle cover.

And a third. Vast quantity!

Turkish M1893 Mauser long rifle, made c.1895 in 7.65X54, rebuilt in 1935 and barrel changed to 7.92X57. Mixed numbers with correct sling, bayonet, scabbard, and Yugo frog. This was the only Mauser to be made with a magazine cutoff. The cutoff has been deactivated on this rifle, as on all Turk rebuilds. Note the stock is original German Mauser without pistol grip and with German style (1893/95 style) retaining spring on lower band. The bolt disassembly disc was added by the Turks. The bayonet is an M1890, shortened by the Turks c.1935. Imported by Century.
