    Anyone know of an online resource for American contracted mausers?
    I have what I was told is a savage built Mauser that I can't find any info on

    I know that Savage built Lee-Enfields but had no clue they ever built Mauser actions...

    not a mauser, large and small ring have a closed top reciever. with the bolt handle towards the reare of the bolt not in the middle, looks like maybe a madsen. I've seen that safety before, let me noodle on it a while.

    any other markings, anywhere?

    I'll send you a bill

    btw I think the 450 price on the gunbroker one is a bit optimistic, be very careful about the ammo you use in it, it may or may not have been rechambered. cast the chamber again with some cerrosafe, make sure.

    Should fire the "6.5 Jap" rounds. I just sold one of these for $160.00 in very nice condition and it came with two bolts.
