Description:

Manufactured about 1897. Blade front and 500 meter tangent rear sights, with the top of the chamber marked "WAFFENFABRIK/MAUSER/OBERNDORF A/N", the left side is marked with a "crown/crown/U" German test proof, and an Oberndorf antler proof on the right flat. Matching numbers are present on the frame, hammer, bolt, follower, floorplate, and the ribbed grip panels. With a hardwood shoulder stock, numbered to match the pistol on the blued mounting iron.

Rating Definition:

Very fine, with 85% of the original blue finish, showing a streak of gray patina on the left side near the rear milled panel, bright edge wear, minor spotting and light handling marks. 80% original niter blue remains on the small parts, and 75% original straw on the trigger. The grips are fine, with some light dings, and the otherwise fine stock shows a number of scuffs and dents, and tool marks/filing on the iron. Mechanically excellent.
