I saw a M43 Spanish Mauser at a show today that had a scrubbed receiver ring.It was blued like the rest of the rifle ,and the 7.92 was still on the side rail.Anybody know when,where and why this may have been scrubbed.I read somewhere that some M44's were scrubbed for the Morrocan Police.Did they use M43's also?



Thanks

Did it have a turned down bolt? Did it have a serial number without a letter prefix? There were both some commercial versions made, and some scrubbed ones that were "lent" to certain Morrocan rebels.

You know,I was so busy looking at the rest of the rifle I didn't notice the bolt.The serial did have a B prefix.I'm going back tomorrow and will take another look.
