    My dad just picked up a mauser carbine. The only information he Emailed me was that it was about 37 inches overall, bent bolt hand with stock depression to accommodate, "Manufactura Loewe Berlin" Stamp on the side of receiver, and crest with handshake on receiver. Any guesses as to what it is?

    Argentine Mauser, probably the shorter carbine model

    Thanks, Can you tell me anything about the strength of the actions? Are they comparable to an M98? If they're in good condition are they fairly strong, or are they more of a wall hanger?
