Brazilian M1894 Sporter Chambered in 7.62×39 (AK)

A Ludwig Loewe Brazilian contract M1894 rifle with a new walnut Monte Carlo sporter stock, originally 7mm Mauser (7x57mm) but more recently re-barreled to 7.62x39mm Russian (the AK-47 cartridge), using a commercial sporter contour barrel.  Has Kwik-Site brand high scope rings. A Norinco 1.5X-to-4.5X variable scope base has been installed. The bolt handle has been sporter recontoured for sope clearance.  The serial number is D428X, placing its date of manufacture as circa 1896. Loewe & Company became a part of Deutsche Waffen Munitionsfabriken (DWM) in 1897, so all “Loewe” marked Mausers are pre-1899. The top of the receiver has had the Brazilian crest buffed off. The left side of the receiver is marked with “ESTADOS UNIDOS DO BRAZIL / MANUFACTURA LOEWE BERLIM 1894”. (The Portuguese spelling of Berlin is used “Berlim”.) The bottom metal is unmarked. The follower has been replaced to assure smooth feeding of the shorter 7.62×39 cartridges. The barrel length is approximately 21.5 Inches. There are no iron sights. There are no sling swivels installed. With a fresh Parkerized finish and a new stock, this  128-year-old rifle looks like new. The bore is excellent, with sharp rifling. A handsomely done sporter that is ready to hunt! Ballistically, 7.62x39mm is almost identical to .30-30 Winchester. (NRHM-762)
