This one turned up and I have been after one for a while so I took the plunge.
I haven't seen too many up for sale lately so why not

This one was manufactured by Ludwig Lowe in 1895.

This one is matching right down to the cleaning rod.

The bore is shiny and rifling very sharp.

Had no problem hitting the gong at 500yds with factory loads.
The crest has been ground off on this example

Great find - classic Mauser long rifles are works of art.
The ammo here is about $0.75 / round (USD) - how is the availability / affordability in your area?

Now you need to find one of these - snagged this a couple of years ago to go with mine. Happy hunting.

To add to that ammo question, do you guys get much surplus ammo or is it new manufactured ammo... ??? And does PPU brand sell down there...???
