    Default What kind of gun is this?

    Hoping to get some info on this bolt action. Not sure what it is. I can not find any markings other than some matching numbers. No words, no marks. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    From the photos, it looks like a Lee-Enfield No. 1 maybe?

    My GUESS----- 1893 (or maybe 1895) Spanish Mauser Cavalry Carbine. Usually they say Fabrica de Armas Oviedo Espana on the front receiver ring, along with a year. Original caliber was probably 7x57.

    Thank you, I agree it is probably a Mauser, but there are no crests or marking anywhere on the rifle. Even during a disassemble I found no interior marks.

    Not unheard of to have no marks. Here is an interesting site with some info: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    A lot of these were converted to 7.62 CETME. If the bore looks like it measures over 7mm (.275") you might want to have it checked out by a gunsmith.

    Yours is a cavalry carbine. Full wood to the barrel end and that round ring on a rail under the stock are clues.
