Re: 1910 Mexican Mauser Conversion
I just bought a small ring mauser,98.
this one is chamberd for the 7X57, Its already been sporterized and the guy did a real nice job. It looks like it was probably done 40 or 50 years ago and has not been used since.
I have had a little trouble finding out for certain if it is in fact a mexican 1910. But based on the action length and distance beetween the stock screws, that is what I think it is.
It has a standard mauser bolt schroud with a buhler type saftey. Not the knob found on most mexes. But that may have been changed out.
It also has a very old timney trigger.
All markings exept the serial # are gone. If the barrel is origional military who ever turned it and trimmed it to its currant 22 inches was damn good.
it has a prety stock that is nicly finished but the for tip is just cut off strait.
I loaded up some 140 grain bullets to try it out with the like new weaver steel tube K-4 on it. its cooler then heck , I want saturday to get here so I can try it out.
If it shoots good it stays a 7 mauser (great round) if not ! 6mm remington.
