    M1916 Spanish Mauser

    I recently bought this M1916 Spanish 7mm Mauser. The rifle is dated 1925 and was made by CVIEDO. My understanding it is a shorten version of the M1893. The rifle
    is in very good condition, with an excellant bore. I really think the the "roller coaster sights" are neat and the 7mm Mauser round is pleasure to shoot. Other than the
    SN on the side of the receiver, the only markings are what you see on top. It was imported by SAMCO out of Florida, marked in small print at bottem end of the barrel.

    I had one of these that had been converted to .308 Win. Definately not as nice as yours, but a great shooter. I could never get used to the straight stock.. That was my only complaint about it.. well and the lack of aftermarkets for the Spanish Mausers (i.e. scope mounts and stock replacements) hard to find anything to fit the 93 Mausers.

    This is another Model 1916 I have had for some time. It has no markings at all on it, except a s.n. on the side of the receiver. The only info on it is under the end of the barrel where it is lightly engraved
    SAMCO 1916 Spanish 7 mm Mauser. Sights are different too. Appears to be a later version?

    You are only seeing the markings on the side of the sight, they have neat markings on top that are exposed as the sight is raised. Pretty cool!

    They look great. I have owned one in 7mm before and it was a good shooter. Have one in .308 now but have not fired it yet.

    I have one stamped 1934. The stock has been sporterized and the front sight hood is missing.
    Do you now if any other stocks will fit this rifle?
