Rare Spanish Contract Loewe Mauser M1893 Cavalry Carbine

PENDING SALE to A.T. — A rarely-seen original Mauser Model 1893 cavalry saddle ring carbine chambered in 7x57mm Mauser. This Spanish military contract carbine is not import marked. It was manufactured by Loewe in Berlin in 1896 as evidenced by the visible four-panel crest and year stamp. That makes it Spanish-American war vintage! Has all matching serial numbers. Serial # is B835X. The wood is quite nice for an original cavalry carbine.  There is a nice sharp 1896 cartouche stamped on the right side of the stock. (See photos.) The metal shows plenty of wear from use, but not abuse. No import marks. The floorplate is worn with some light pitting. The saddle ring is in nice shape. The action and safety function fine, and the trigger pull is typical for a Model 1895. The bore is dulling but it has plenty of rifling and no significant pitting. These carbines are much more rare than the rifles of the same vintage. They are very hard to find in this condition! (EECC-190)
