Rifle offered is from an estate and is an Argentine Mauser by Waffenbrik-Mauser Oberndorf done in 7.65 Argentine (7.65X53) which still has the original issue barrel even though the rifle has been sporterized. It comes with a 4X32 scope bearing trade name Monoscope which is mounted with Weaver style rings and bases. The rifle appears to have the original military trigger.
The stock, which I would almost bet is an old Fajen, has been glass bedded for the action however there is a feather crack on the left side which does extend into the magazine well of the wood. It should be a fairly easy fix with a little Acraglas. It is missing the rear sling swivel post.
Mechanically, the rifle is in splendid condition. It has a beautiful bore, nice and shiny with very heavy rifling with nice sharp shoulders. It has truly got a great pipe on it. Cosmetically, the rifle has been reblued. There are some small spots on the surfaces which should not be there but, unfortunately, in the owner’s declining years he simply wasn’t able to tend to his gun pile like he should have. The wood, beyond the crack mentioned above, has not been all beat up but the gun has been hunted.
All said, pretty solid rifle which if looked after, should give great service.
Please ask any questions you might have and I will respond as best I am able.
