I also have 2 M93 Spanish Mausers. One of which is in very good complete, original condition. According to this site: http://masterton.us/Spanmauhome
and it's listing of serial numbers it was made in 1927. The 2nd one is sort of an enigma. It's, sadly, been sporterized , (i.e. aesthetically ruined), and has had all marking/crest removed on the receiver other than the serial number. Again according to the site above the only place the serial number on the receiver, which is 7873, fits in is under the 95 carbines. It would be from 1904 possibly. He has this particular rifle listed under "Other Serial Numbers" since I previously supplied him with all of the info I have on this rifle. The serial number on the barrel though, which is far too long, even though cut down, to be from a carbine reads 782. This, according to his info, would be from a 93 made in 1896, assuming that's the full serial number and not an abbreviated version.
What, of coarse, I am wondering is which ammo types are safe to fire with these guns. I have a supply of milsurp ammo made in Chile from the 70's. Would these be safe to use or might they be too "hot"?

Very happy to hear that. Was worried thinking that later loads, especially milsurp, might have been loaded hotter with more modern firearms in mind. I appreciate the info. Thanks again.
