Rifle is a Spanish Mauser done in 7.92 manufactured by Fabrica De Armas. Specifically it is a Model La Coruna 1953. Gun comes from an estate and has been fired. While the piece retains 90+% of what I believe to be original metal finish, the stock appears to have been re-finished with Tung oil or linseed oil. Nicely done but still refinished. There rifle is a hodgepodge of different serial numbers which does not surprise me. The important numbers are that the receiver and bolt match. I checked headspace using Forster headspace gauges and everything is proper. Closes nicely on the GO gauge and only about 1/3 closure on the NO-GO gauge. The barrel is 23 ½” long and the bore is very strong with nice sharp edges on the rifling. It is not mirror bright which is typical of the era of manufacture. When functioned, the mechanical safety exhibits considerable draw on the firing pin striker. All in all- I would say the rifle is in great mechanical condition and probably will shoot just fine.
