Spanish Model 43 Mauser Short Rifle

  • Price: $395.00
  • Maker: Spanish
  • Model: Mauser
  • Caliber: 8mm

  • Description: Serial #T-8587, 8mm Mauser, 24" barrel with a fair-good bore that has dark freckling and pitting within the grooves. This is a 1951-dated rifle, made at La Coruna, and retains 60-70% of an armory reapplied blue finish that has faded to dull gray and plum-brown on the balance. The straight-handled bolt is mostly bright gray, and is numbered to a different gun, while the matching trigger guard and floorplate have been cleaned, with some blue on the protected areas. The stock and handguard are in very good condition with small handling marks and minor surface blemishes scattered about the reapplied military oil finish. There are a few tiny, hairline cracks at the heel of the buttplate, and a pronounced gap at the toe. An original cleaning rod is included and there is no import stamp. This is an about good example of a post-WW2 Spanish Mauser overall. FFL or C&R
