Picked this up today at the gun show for $110. Bore looked decent, it ought to shoot ok. I don't know a whole lot about them other than this is a Chinese arsenal stamp, and it's an 8mm Mauser rifle. I've got some pics, so if anyone can share any more info, it would be greatly appreciated!

Great price on a very nice rifle..A decent bore on one of these is a huge plus!!..You are in luck here as well, scroll up to the stickies and there is one dedicated to the Chinese mausers with some knowledgeable folks who can dechipher your markings for you..Nice find!

Congrat, a nice find and a good piece. The rifle was a licensed copy of the German Standard Modell, produced in Aug. 1945 based on the marking on the receiver - 34-8. The factory was the 1st Arsenal, it was the Gongxian Arsenal's rifle factory relocated from Henan, Hunan then Chungking and merged into the 1st Arsenal - the old Hanyang. It is known today as the 296th which used triangle with 26 inside, still a major producer in China. The bow/arrow/gear is the Arsenal Administration marking China start using in the mid-40s.
