  • Description: Serial #9165, .43 Mauser, 31” barrel with an excellent, bright bore. This is an 1888 dated rifle that has matching numbers on all of the metal parts and retains 97-98% of the original, bright arsenal blue finish on the barrel, bands, and trigger guard. There are some very minor areas of mild plum-brown freckling, mainly on the front band, and a few small specks of freckling on the otherwise excellent, armory bright receiver and bolt. The walnut stock has crisp Prussian inspection and acceptance proofs with only a handful of very minor handling marks in the otherwise excellent original military oil finish. Some old spots of white paint or whitewash are present along the belly of the buttstock, as well as a slight gap between the inletting and nosecap. This is an excellent military Mauser, hard to improve upon, and would make a handsome addition to a collection. Antique
