Mauser derivative

This design is a 1940s variation of an 1890s design. Nothing like the scary semi-auto rifles that the US prohibitionists fear. And yet, can you imagine them being OK with you or I having this rifle without interference?

    Spot on point, and as usual, excellent photos.

    “Why do you need a military assault sniper weapon of war to hunt deer?”

    I found my Mauser, complete with WWII German marks, in a cache in Vietnam. I bet nobody has a record of that serial number. Unfortunately, the bore is not in good condition. Still, in an emergency…

    Meanwhile, it hangs over my mantel, and starts interesting conversations.

    Not to be the Mauser Nazi (no pun intended) but that’s an interesting bolt handle, sling swivels and handguard on that “K98”.

    What’s the story behind those workman’s spectacles in the first picture? and why didn’t they along with the rest of the 30’s styling carry over to the second picture was that a metaphor of some kind? “what defended freedom then continues to do so now” sort of thing?
