I bought this rifle with the intent to rebarrel it into a 257 Roberts but I came across something else that will better suit my needs. The rifle was a 7x57 before I took the barrel off and sold it.
What I have for sale is an 1895 Chilean Mauser-small ring action and a Richards microfit thumbhole stock.
Also included is a one piece base and Leupold 1" rings
The action is in mint condition and has been duracoated gray. The action has absolutley no pitting, rust or dings in the metal.. the guy that I purchased it from said it was coated in heavy grease when he purchase it and went straight to the gunsmith.
The bolt handle has been bent also.
There is great lug contact and the rifle shot well under 1" before I test fired it and removed the barrel.
The stock is 100% inletted and finished and is in great shape. There are one or two superficial dings.
The serial numers all match on the bottom metal, receiver and bolt..The bolt serial number was polished out when the handle was bent.
Please ask any questions..I can get more picturs if you need....
Asking $295 obo
