German Mauser Sporter 7x57 Modelo Espanol 1893 Mfg. in Berlin Germany.
This is a nice example of Custom Gun Work. This Sporter Rifle is in great condition from end to end. It was Sporterized sometime during the mid to late 1930’s and features a Lyman front site and a Redfield peep rear site. The Rifle is Not Drilled or Tapped for a scope. This would make for a great back up rifle on deer hunts where freezing rain, fog, or thick timber can make a scoped rifle useless.
The Hardwood Stock is in Excellent Condition with a few faint handling marks. NO Cracks or Splits, and the LOP is 13 3/4". The Classic Inlaid Diamond Design and Nose are of Beautiful Tiger Maple. The 22" Barrel Shows some fading consistant with age but still 85%. In addition, the Receiver, Trigger Guard and Floor Plate Bluing are in Very Good Condition (95%) with No Rust and the Bore is Bright with Sharp Rifiling.
The 7x57mm was developed by the famous German firm of Mauser in 1892, and adopted by the Spanish Government in 1893. This rifle model (M-1893) was the new and improved Mauser. Adopted by Spain it became the primary rifle used during the Spanish-American war in 1898. The 7x57mm Modelo Espanol 1893 began the evolution of the Mauser rifle which became the most desired military arm for over 50 years. This rifle was manufactured for the Spanish Government by Loewe & Co. of Berlin Germany.
