    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.

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