This Mauser seem to be a 1904 Mauser-Verguerio without Portuguese
military markings, other than German commercial proof
marks. (proof marks on receiver show 7mm caliber) Caliber is 7mm (7x57)
also marked on sight base. Circle around the B seems to be a Brazilian
Has hinged floor plate. Barrel is
identical configuration to a M-1909 Argentine, (29 inch) Was covered in
black paint and stock cut down., Was missing the cocking piece and
safely and bolt shroud (found these parts)
Looking for original full length rifle stock (not 1904/39 carbine stock).
Info points to a Salesman's sample, used to gain the contract for
the Brazilian Police in 1910. Some information also points
that some of these were made for Siam.
Looking for some more info,
pictures on this rifle.
Found a M-1904 in 6.5 Portuguese a few years back at a show, also
sporterized. Took several years to find all the parts (stock
especially). Was really neat because Portuguese rest was scratched out
Dominican Republic markings added.
Still haven't found any ammo for the 6.5 .
