Mauser made relatively few Large Ring Milled Panel Carbines. This mid-production example has a 16" barrel with a drift adjustable bead front sight and a grooved slip-in 50-500 rear sight in which the groove is continued into the securing lug. Usual chamber address with the serial number marked on the left chamber flat. Crown U marking on the left side of the barrel extension where obscured by the forend. The bolt has a long extractor and a two lug firing pin. The frame is marked with a two line address on the right side while the left side is marked with the serial number “625” to match the stock lug. The matching number is repeated under the sight, on the bolt stop, on top of the bolt, the back of the hammer, the back of the sub-frame, and the locking lever. The wood forend has a length 9 - 1/4" and the buttstock is fitted with a Mauser buttplate having the intertwined MW. Neither the forend nor the buttstock are equipped with a swing swivel. PROVENANCE: Collection of Dr. Geoffrey Sturgess. CONDITION: Extraordinarily fine 98-99% bright rust blue with only minimal sharp edge wear, slightly more prominent on floorplate. Approximately 95% original fire blue on small parts, except for arms of the stock iron that have begun to thin & tone. Comparable condition straw on trigger. Most of the original varnish remaining on the forend & buttstock that have a scattering of handling marks & superficial dings. Original buttplate without splits or chips. Bright bore with sharp rifling & mild frosting. Operates correctly. One of the nicest Large Ring Milled Panel Carbines extant.
