Scarce Ludwig Loewe Chilean M1895 Saddle Ring Carbine 7×57

A scarce Chilean contract 1895 early production Ludwig Loewe Saddle Ring Carbine 7×57 Mauser. 17.7″ barrel. Good to Very Good overall condition. Made circa 1896. No import marks. (A pre-1968  import.)  Serial numbers are mostly matching except for the safety lever. Chilean crest is intact on the receiver ring. Bore is very good (gray) with sharp rifling. Wood and metal show typical service wear, but no abuse. Finish all looks original except for the stock, which may have been sanded at one time. (See photos.) The magazine follower still shows some electric blue. Serial number B215X. The B-prefix Model 1895s were some of the earliest produced. (Circa 1895.) Most of these saddle ring carbines got rough treatment in calvary service, so it is rare to find one in this condition.  (ILM-160)
