    Unhappy Chilean Bubba Mauser

    I am pretty sure I just bought a bubba'd 1895 Chileanicon Mauser for much more than it is worth. Can anyone help me figure out which model this used to be (Carbine, Rifle, Short, etc.)? I know that the safety latch is aftermarket (Buehle) and it looks like a very well done chop job. Does anyone know what model it used to me?

    It is sort of a shame, as the blueing is amazing and all the serial numbers match.

    Sorry for the links. They did not work with the image tags.

    If it were a carbine or a short rifle it would have indications of a sling swivel being mounted on the side of the butt stock. The type can actually be told by which side. Lacking those, it was probably a long rifle.

    Looks like rifle sights. A shame as it WAS a very nice keeper. What did you give for it?

    Unfortunately 375 USD. I will just enjoy shooting it and I doubt I could get a similar quality rifle new for anywhere near that price these days. I do like the "Mannlicher" style, but it is a shame that it got cut down. I was reading that back in the 60s, Interarms would cut them down before selling them to market them to hunters. I am also going to look into getting a front sight hood from a Yugoicon Mauser (like 15 bucks) and put that on the front over the brass sight they installed.

    You got that right!!! Not to insult your intelligence, but did you notice it had scope bases mounted when you bought it?

    Yeah, you paid too much. Still if you enjoy it and it shoots well, not a biggie.

    Oh, my. Way too much. I would guess half that. Just shoot it and enjoy.

    Yeah I did. I just figured it would be worth a bit more since there were many less than there were Yugoicon Mausers for example.

    I'd love to see a full length photo if you get a chance. If nothing else, it looks interesting. And you have to realize, you're posting on a milsurp site where sporterized things are not valued much. 7mm is a great caliber and it might be a great sporter rifle.
