Stopped by the local gunshop today to pick up some 8mm and noticed a mauser sitting behind the counter that had recently been traded in. Agreed to $199 and put it on layaway as I didn't have my debit card with me. I know next to nothing on mausers and have no pic.
This is what I do know: Small ring 7mm , straight bolt, dated 1927, No crest, but small writing on reciever that said something like "Eaercia Sakmos" , beautiful bluing and a mirror bright bore. Any ideas?

Sounds a lot like a Turkish M1903, but the wrong caliber if 7x57mm

No Turkish markings though (Crescent, star, ect) ?
Looks like a Spanish mauser, rear sight is sliding with the hump on it.

Need more info. This is like my wife asking me to get the movie with.. That Guy and That Girl and they are being chased by bad-guys in some sort of big city....

My apologies but I don't have the rifle in front of me to take a pic.
