This is a Chinese copy of a Mauser broomhandle with a bow and arrow inside a gear stamped on the left rear side of the frame and numerous characters on the right rear side of the frame. The front strap is marked "N.A. CO / RIDGEFIELD, N.J." and "CHINA" on the backstrap. Fixed inverted "V" front sight and rear tangent sight graduated to 1000. All blue finish with bright bolt, rear sight bar and hammer assembly. Magazine release on the right side, with a "MAUSER" marked magazine. Fitted with varnished hardwood grips with serrations, the backstrap is cut for a stock and there is a lanyard swivel eye mounted on the butt. Complete with a wooden shoulder stock.

Rating Definition:

Very good as newly refurbished/reworked. The pistol retains approximately 98% blue finish with some minor scratches and some fading on the grip straps. The freshened grips are excellent with some mild handling marks. The magazine catch spring needs to be replaced as the magazine will drop out, otherwise action functions fine. The refinished stock has some light handling marks, along with some minor pressure dents on the lid.
