    Default Identify this Mauser 7MM

    Hey guys, my buddy just got this passed down to him from his grandfather passing. I know it's a Mauser 7MM, but anyone have an experience in identifying these markings?

    It appears to be manufactured in Germany around 1908, other than that, that's all I've got.

    Thanks for the help

    Quick question, if it's Brazilian, then why the German stamps?

    It was probably manufactured in Germany and got an acceptance stamp when it was imported to Brazil, something like that.

    The contracts were given to mauser, since Brazil had no arms industry of it's own, if you take a quick look at Argentinian and Turkish mausers or the Peruvian mausers by FN you'll see the very same stamps

    Thanks man, it shoots like a gem too, very accurate and smooth action.

    We shot without ear protection on, and I could only imagine having hundreds of these rifles firing on the line.
