The barrel show light scratches and other marks. The front sight wings show scratches. The screw heads show heavy use. The markings are deep. Overall, this rifle rates in about Very Good condition.

Our Assessment: We usually see Persian Long Rifles, we occasionally see Persian Model 49 Carbines but Persian Cavalry carbines are something we usually don’t see due to their scarcity. The Persian Cavalry Carbines were made by the Czechs for the Persians, so these are high quality Mausers. This one has lost most of its finish, but its markings are very deep & defined and the bore is in Very Good condition. This is a great Mauser to add to your Military collection. These are hard to find so get yours now.

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This rifle is curio and relic eligible and can be transferred/sold in California.
