Of all the rifles I've ever owned this is the one that speaks to me. The metal is all matching down to the smallest parts, the reciver is highly polished and the bluing mint. It is import stamped by Springfield Armory.
Serial is 16a from the first shipment. Bore is very bright abd grooves highly defined. I have shot 500 rounds of FN thru it with good results.

They are not making them like THAT anymore!

No telling what a tiger-striped walnut stock like that would cost on a newly made custom rifle today...
Beautiful!

Thank you. The wood is actually more impressive in person. Now if I could only find some more of that FN 7mm Mauser ammo!

That one is a beauty. I think DWM made the nicest mausers.
I like Lowe as well, and Steyr, nothing wrong with the Swedes either,just about any of the preWWI Mausers are works of art in steel and wood.....And didn't someone in Oberndorf
make some nice ones as well?

That Brazilian crest is one of the best looking crests around. Nice matching rifle with a low S/N and great wood. Can't ask for more!!

Very nice, and like a few of the other SA contract pieces, they had many survive in pristine condition. Every Mauser coollector should try to have at least one in near excellent condition to fully appreciate the craftmanship.
