This one is in great original condition. The bore is bright and shiny. The rifling in sharp and strong. It is chambered in 9mm Largo. I have had this one for a while and have never got around to shooting it. I do not know much about these rifle's, but please ask any questions and I will try to answer. Please check my other sales. I am condensing and refocusing my collection and will be getting rid of quite a few nice items. I must ship this to a FFL or C&R. Please make sure that you FFL will accept shipment from a C&R FFL license holder. I will accept payment of a Postal Money Order purchased from your local Post Office.

The Destroyer Carbine is a small bolt action carbine chambered for the9 mm Largo (Large) cartridge. It was used by Spanish police and prison services, including the Civil Guard from the mid 1930s until the late 1960s. It is essentially a scaled down Model 1893 Mauser with two rear-mounted locking lugs and a Mauser-style two-position flip safety. The Destroyer fired the same ammunition as the standard-issue police handgun and took the same magazines, however the longer rifle barrel resulted in greater muzzle velocity and accuracy, and subsequently range. It continued the tradition, started in the 1890's, of issuing police units with a short, handy, repeating carbine in pistol ammunition calibre. While no longer in government service, the Destroyer Carbine is highly prized as a collectors item due to its comparitive rarity, as well as a desirable target rifle due to favorable shooting characteristics such as minimal recoil and relatively inexpensive ammunition. In the interest of safety, it should be noted that while all rimless 9mm diameter pistol cartridges will chamber in a Destroyer Carbine, and consequently will fire, it is extremely unsafe to use ammunition other than 9 x 23 mm Largo due to the dangers of excessive pressure. Some late-production experimental Destroyer Carbines were produced in other calibers such as 38 auto or 9 mm Luger and are even more highly sought after.
