Ludwig Loewe M1893 — Span-Am War Vintage

Pending Sale to J. — Scarce Spanish-American war vintage Spanish contract Mauser M1893 Rifle, 7x57mm Mauser, made by Ludwig Loewe, Berlin, in 1896. Still in original military configuration, with 28″ barrel. (Not sporterized.) Bore is worn, dark, and dirty. Serial #G 685X. Serialized parts are all matching, except for the bolt sleeve and safety. So the bolt serial number may have been force-matched. Cleaning rod is un-numbered, so it may not be original. Rifle appears to have been depot refinished at least once, but the original crest is intact and legibly reads “BERLIN 1896” with the Loewe Crest! The Loewe maker’s mark and Star of David are crisp, assuring it’s antique status. Original stock is numbered to the gun and in quite good condition for a Spanish Mauser, with just scattered dents and minor scratches. StampedĀ  “R” on butt, indicating it was an arsenal reconditioned rifle. Metal finish is slightly faded to brown. The rear sight elevator works perfectly. A great Spanish-American War vintage Loewe Mauser! (PLR-087) Price: $975
