    Picked up a Mauser 1893 last night and have no clue about these guns as it is my first one. Has 7mm stamped in the barrel, Made in Berlin and seems to be a pretty clean weapon overall...great rifling and smooth action as well. Can anybody give me any info on these including what caliber 7mm ammo I should run through it?

    7x57, I had one years ago, wish I had not sold it.
    Not as strong as the later versions, as it only has 2 bolt lugs.
    The later versions also use the bolt handle as a lug.

    Have a Gunsmith check the head space.

    Bolt number match the receiver number?

    Sounds like 7mm Mauser.

    In the Spanish American War, the Spanish soldiers were armed primarily with German-made 1893s. It is possible that is a Spanish American War bringback.

    7mm mauser also know as 7x57 Very nice and accurate rifles. I have a couple that I have not shot in years. You can buff that bolt and it will come out bright and shinny. Looks like the last version made for spain. The mag is flush with the stock.

    Is the bolt square on the bottom of the face? Looks like it is in great condition. I have lusted for the 1895 carbine. Missed one as a 15 year old and haven't seen one since that was in decent condition.
