Or in that time period, were the Springfields the only ones still thinking along those lines?

The Mosin Nagant has a cutoff. But then again, it was added to help with the rimlock issue of the rimmed cartridges.

I know the earlier Model 71 and 71/84 blackpowder Mausers had cut-offs.
I cannot think of any smokeless powder Mauser that had a cut-off but I am sure some country placed an order for a model with that feature at sometime.

Because the Mauser smokeless powder rifles could be clip loaded or loaded with individual cartridges as needed, I believe the Mauser brothers didn't feel a cut-off feature was required or neccessary in their smoless powder designs.

I think I saw a 93 or 95 Mauser that had a mag cut off.
I cant remember in what context:confused:

according to this site: http://www.turkmauser.com/93/ 1893 Turkish Mausers did have a cut-off, but many were removed at some point in the future (during re-arsenal in the 30's would be my guess.).Mine doesn't have the cut-off.
