So I was at the range and gun store, picking up a carry piece and doing some test shooting. I decided to browse through the rifle section they have while I waited for the paper work to go through. Sitting on the rack where they keep their older long guns was a beautiful Chilean Mauser m1895. I didnâ€™t have a bore light, so I couldnâ€™t easily check the bore, but it looks to be in really excellent condition. The stock shows only a little wear and some minor dings, same for all the metal parts. Nothing about it has been sporterized. The asking price is $239 if I remember correctly. Iâ€™ve seen it sitting there for the last year, I guess itâ€™s unloved. I know absolutely nothing about m1895 Chilean Mausers, except that with a little research, it appears that they shoot 7x57 for their ammo. Also it speaks to me, both because it is beautiful to behold, and because it is something unique. In my area, I have not seen Central or South American surplus bolties. Swiss, Russian, German, British, and American are a dime a dozen (well, maybe not a dime, but they are available by the dozens). Does anyone know anything about this kind of rifle? Are there any caveats that I should know about? Anything I should check for in particular? Is $239 a fair price? Too high? Too low? Iâ€™m completely clueless, but itâ€™s beautiful so I like it. Still beauty can burn sometimes. Thatâ€™s why Iâ€™m asking if anyone knows anything.
