My neighbor has a modelo 1895 Chilean Mauser that was produced in Ludwig Loewe, Germany in 1895. I've seen dozens of youtube videos of the long rifle version.Hers however is the short rifle variant: not the super short cavalry one but the intermediate carbine one. It has a bent down bolt too. She let me use it and take it to the range. First time it had been shot since the 40's apparently. Used old 20's spanish surplus round nose rounds, and also 1940s and 50's surplus finnish surplus nickel plated spitzer rounds. Chambered in 7mm mauser, which seems like an awesome round. Fired well and grouped good at 100 yards considering it's dark bore. Rifling is still pretty strong. What I want to know is where can I find videos on the short rifle version? I've found only one on youtube of an incomplete one. What can you guys tell me about the carbine model? It's history? She says she believes her uncle brought it back from WWII as a souvenir. Why would a German soldier be using the 7mm mauser and not an 8mm 98?Would a rear line/militia unit be issued perhaps a model 95 that had not been shipped to South America?
