I bought a nice looking venezuelan mauser today in 7mm. I read through old posts and seen two models were made the short rifle and the carbine. the barrel length on my rifle is about 23 inches but it has a bent bolt. Is this correct? There are no serial numbers on the bolt, the only numbers are on the receiver and the stock. There is also no stampings on the footplate. You can see in the pics that the rifle appears to have some rust under the woodline. I'll pull it apart here soon and clean it. Also does the stock appear to be refinished? Any info on this rifle would be appreciated.

Sorry for the poor pics, it was hard taking them with the flash. I can get better pics tomorrow if needed

Nice rifle Will. I don't know anything about this FN - made Mauser. It's a nice length and bent bolt is a definite bonus. Do you have 7mm dies? Marc

The stock has been cut to fit the altered bolt whoever did the work did a great job. Could it be that this is a carbine bolt in this rifle or does it look home made. Is there anyway to date the gun?

I took the rifle apart and what I thought was rust under the wood line was dried cosmo. I noticed that the receiver also has a cut out for the bolt. This thing looks like it was never taken apart.

That is an awesome rifle! That's great that you have 7mm to shoot. Whoever did the bolt and the stock did a great job. I figured waffenampt would chime in with his knowledge. I thought that the rifle looked a lot like the Chilean 1912 Mauser. Enjoy the new toy Will!
