Deactivated Mauser Model 1896 South African Boer OVS marked rifle


This is one of a 10,000 rifle order made by the South African Republic just before the Boer War of 1899-1901, chambered for a 7 x 57mm cartridge, and shipped over in September 1896, according to the serial number. Built by Ludwig Lowe, Berlin, and marked such on the left side of the receiver under 'Mod. Mauser 1896', it is also marked O.V.S. for the Orange Free State ( in Dutch ) very faintly on the stock just below the receiver ring. Stamped in a number of places with the German military inspection mark, this example is in good sound condition for it's age and history. The hardwood stock is complete with just the normal knocks, with just a small crack on the left side as can be seen, and the steel shows some light corrosion but nothing major, with some light pitting in places, like around the safety catch. As was not unusual for these Boer rifles, the owner has carved his name on the right just rear of the bolt handle. It looks like Mani? Complete with original cleaning rod. A rifle with a huge amount of history in good sound condition. Able to be stripped, cocked and dry-fired. Deactivated in the UK with proof-house certificate.
