Mexican Mauser Carbine
Here's a 1903 dated Model 1902 Mexican Carbine. Manufactured by DWM All parts but the bolt shroud match, no import marks. 17.5" Barrel.
Built on the 98 action in 7X57mm.
The bore looked horrible when I started but looks were deceiving.
It was in pretty tough shape but it cleaned up well. I wish the blueing above the wood was as good as it was below. Nothing more than Break Free and 0000 steel wool was used on the metal.
The stock was bone dry and it sucked up 4 coats of BLO.
The first pictures are as it was received.
After cleaning & oiling.

Show me ANY law that would have stopped any of the school shootings.
Freedom has ceased to be a birthright; it has come to mean whatever we are still permitted to do.

wow nice job. How common are these Mexican Mauser carbines?"Americans have the right and advantage of being armed - unlike the citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust the people with arms." (James Madison, The Federalist Papers #46 at 243-244)

Great restoration. I gotta ask though... where'd you get it and how much?

I'm still not finished with it. The stock needs a couple more coats of oil. It was bone dry. I initially thought that it was stripped but it appears that it just dried out.
I need a safety lever for it and I hope to locate a reasonably "proper" cleaning rod.'PUGNA PRO PATRIA'

Nevermind, I see you've been there already.
One more option might be a guy on the Gunboards forum by the name of Bob In St Louis. he has tons of Spanish items for sale and links.

Nice job, indeed !
A Mexican Mauser is still missing in my 'lil collection"I know what you're thinking. Did he fire six shots or only five?
Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I've kinda lost track myself....
you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya punk?"
