Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

1935 Brazilian Short Rifle All Matching

#1 Post by capt14k » Tue Jun 20, 2017 5:23 pm

I searched over 2 years for a 1935 Brazilian Mauser Short Rifle and I finally found one in 2017. There were supposedly 1,000 of the Short Rifle made. They fall in serials 1,000-1999 however there have been at least a half a dozen long rifles observed in that serial range so it's possible there were less than 1,000 made. These were also used by Brazil unlike the Long Rifles. Many were used hard. To have an all matching one in the condition it is in was well worth the wait.

The correct serials are as follows:


1.) Complete serial no. - Receiver, left side
2.) Complete serial no. - Rear end of barrel, left side (under handguard)
3.) Complete serial no. - Inside of stock
4.) Complete serial no. - Inside of handguard
5.) Complete serial no. - On top of bolt handle root
6.) Complete serial no. - Underside of rear sight leaf
7.) Complete serial no. - Forward magazine lip
8.) Complete serial no. - Bayonet cross guard, left side
9.) Complete serial no. - Factory test target, left upper edge
10.) Last two digits of serial no. - Front end of magazine floorplate (for photo see position 7)
11.) Last two digits of serial no. - On top of bolt sleeve
12.) Last two digits of serial no. - On top of safety wing
13.) Last two digits of serial no. - Lower rear face of cocking piece
14.) Last two digits of serial no. - On top of extractor claw
15.) Last two digits of serial no. - On firing pin
16.) Last two digits of serial no. - On top of bolt catch
17.) Last two digits of serial no. - Front end of trigger sear, left side
18.) Complete serial no. - On underside of butt stock (additional to the stamping inside the stock, however, this wasn't done always - two short M1935s with consecutive s/nos. were observed one with and one without the external stamping)
19.) Last two digits of serial no. - on trigger (under the stock), left side

:clap: Well done, Sir. Very well done. The Brazilian 35's and vz24s I have seen for sale look like they sat rotting in the Amazon jungle for years. Persistence pays off.

Lol. No I have a very observant friend in Germany who found both rifles for me online. The 1935 Brazilian Short I actually paid half of what I would of from the grey blanket none the less on Gunbroker. The vz24 Guatemalan I paid top dollar for from Simpson's. I had to have it because it is the only matching one I've seen.

Excellent rifle. I was fortunate to get the 1935 long rifle. This Mauser at its finest in the 1930's production.

Beautiful rifle. I love the Brazilian crest and the Mauser logo on the receiver.
