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.

Chilean Mauser

#1 Post by nrobertb » Sun Jun 04, 2017 4:19 pm

Here is a Model 1889 Chilean Mauser that I bought from a forum member before the recent interruption. The photos are his. It is a good shooter in 7mm Mauser. Ironically, I had one of these a few years ago but sold it and then wished I hadn't.

What do you shoot out of it? I have one myself and I call it the poor man's Swedish Mauser.

Best Regards,

I've been using a .284 175 gr. boattail bullet and 3031 powder with good results.

Those pre-WW1 Mausers are the best.

Nice rifle, Robert.

Those Chilean 1895's are beautiful. They have a few interesting features. One is a cutout in the side rail that the bolt handle fits in, thereby creating kind of a "poor man's safety lug."

I notice that your bolt is turned down. Is it a replacement, or the original that has been turned down?

Funny, I never thought about the bolt handle. The bolt serial number doesn't match the receiver, although it isn't far off. The notch in the stock matches the rest of the stock. The bending of the handle left no marks on it. I'm not sure what to think.

To my knowledge all long rifles were straight bolt. Perhaps the original bolt was replaced with one from a carbine.

AIM SURPLUS has Hornady 7mm Mauser for $31 a box of 20. They haven't had any PRVI for over a year or more.

That's a beautiful rifle, nrobertb. Now I want one.

Rocky Mountain Reloading has a nice selection of .284" bullets, including 175-grain RNSPs pulled from hunting ammo. I bought a bunch of those, hoping that the long bearing surface would play to my advantage. Haven't loaded any yet, but will soon.

Nice rifle. I have two long rifles that appear never have been issued. Searching for a carbine but boy have the prices gone up on them.
