I have one Belgian made FN mauser in 257 Roberts and a Sauer and Sohn (Germany) Mauser in 308. I'm currently looking at a Mexican made Mauser in 7mm.

I like Mausers...

Turkey I think it is a 1893 not consdered a firearm because it was made before 1898. Paid 39.95 for it about 12 or 13 years ago converted to 7.92 Mauser.

I LOVE Mausers!

Germany
Czechoslovakia
Bosnia
Turkey
Mexico
Spain

DO these count, 2 Siamese Mauser in pieces in the work shop, 1 to be restored the other in processes for being chambered in 45/70.

I am lusting for a couple Swedish Mausers, one left stock the other turned into a new deer rifle.

I bought a 30-06 from a hock shop in the 70s for $79.

The markings...
Apparently a sporterized Mauser.
The barrel has two sets of markings.
one says
Kodiak North Haven Conn USA
the other says
(circle with a K in it) 30-06

On the receiver I have found three markings that I can read and one set I'm not sure are markings

There is a serial number that is 11063 on the upper left side
Further back on the receiver it says ZBP which I have identified as a Czechoslovakian mark (Zbrojovka, Praga)
On the front of the receiver on the front side of the tapped stud that you assemble it with, are two marks. One is "E5" and the other a "1"

I'm not sure they are markings or not, but on the bottom of the receiver are some very small somethings that are arranged in a diamond pattern, but I can't make them out

Any further info/help appreciated


Also in the 70s I had the trigger replaced with a Jaeger adjustable trigger

mine is a german 7mm that was part of a large shippment that was sold to africa for use. from what i traced so far it was used in africa for 7 years then sold back to germany. in germany it sat with other outdated guns for many years then sold as part of a large surplus of older military rifels to a usa dealer back in the 70's. from there it made it to many american owners before me. i think it was 12 owners before me here in the usa. i been trying to get more info on it but as every knows its a long hard process and what i have learned so far took me 3 years to get. i talked to alot of diferent familys and i have 3 others helping me find the history of this gun. anyways thats my mausers story.. and even knowing all the hands this mauser has seen it is still 95% original. only thing that has been changed or fixed is the sling. or at least thats the only thing i can see that has been changed from all the info i got, but i might be wrong, never know..
