7/3/18 - This is an original .22 Caliber Mauser training rifle. These were made to train troops in bolt action rifles / shooting accuracy before WW2. The rifle is proof stamped with crown/B and crown/U inspector proofs. The receiver is Mauser banner proofed. The underside of the barrel is stamped "Ch51" and "S", and I'm unsure what these proofs mean. The right side of the barrel base (near the receiver) is "D.R.P." and "D.R.G.M." stamped. The barrel has some light patina/surface browning in spotty areas throughout - we try to depict this as accurately as possible in photos. The overall bluing is excellent though - we'd rate at about 91-92%. The wood is in excellent, all original condition with a faint Mauser stamp on the right side of the stock. The butt plate is also Mauser banner stamped. The bore has very strong rifling, with some minor residue and overall rates about 8-9/10. Guaranteed all original and authentic.
