Rare Chilean Contract Loewe Mauser M1893 Cavalry Carbine

A rarely-seen original Spanish Mauser model 1893 cavalry saddle ring carbine chambered in 7x57mm Mauser. This carbine is not import marked, so it very well could be a Spanish-American War bringback. It was manufactured by Loewe in Berlin in 1894 as evidence by the very faded but still visible crest. Has all matching serial numbers except the cocking piece. The rest of the carbine is serial marked A640X. The wood is about as good as I’ve ever seen on an original cavalry carbine. The metal shows plenty of wear from use, but not abuse. The action and safety function fine, and the trigger pull is typical for a Model 1895. The bore is dark but it still has plenty of rifling and no significant pitting. (CAA-999)
