There are lots of different export Mausers out there and I'm going to show you four from South America.
The first Mauser I ever got was a Peruvian 1909. It was so pretty and I sort of fell in love. It's in 7.65 Argentine.
The national crests on these rifles are wonderful.
And the stocks can be very pretty too.
Once I got started I just kept going.
Next came a 1908 from Brazil in 7mm Mauser. I rather like that round.
Then a Chilean 1895 in 7mm Mauser.
The The crest isn't in the white but it's still pretty and the stock looks nice too.
Finally I went for a Venezuelan 24/30 also in 7 Mauser. When I got this one it was slathered in grease. But it sure cleaned up well.
Does anyone else have any South American Mausers? There are many more types than I posted.

An Argentine DWM 1891 Cavalry Carbine, made in 1900. The 7.65 Argy round.
Peace is that brief, quiet moment in history.......... when everybody stands around reloading.
Some of these old rifles are so nice compared to things I see brand new in firearm stores. And the short rifles and carbines look really handy. Also the ones converted over to easy to find calibers can make getting ammo easy.
I've been looking for a Colombian Mauser but I sort of have a thing for the crests. I want to find a nice defined one.
