    Fal Grunt, no offense taken Sir. I grabbed the short rifle because it is a lot more scarce then the long rifle. Here is a crest pic from my long rifle. Capt. thanks for the compliment. I have been collecting Mausers for over 45 years and was blessed in finding these. Ed

    Thanks for the Ethiopian crest photo Mauser Dad! That is a rare cat to say the least.

    I've consider myself lucky to have as many as I do as well. I had a lot of help along the way. Still looking for the really rare ones. I'm also a little picky in that all mine have to be matching with good bores and strong crests. My hunt continues this week.

    It is interesting that on the one on the left the inscription is written in Catalan (Industries de Guerra de Catalunya) but on geladen's 1937 example the inscription is in standard Castilian Spanish (Industrias de Guerra de Cataluña).

    I do not know the exact explanation for this except that Geladen's specimen is one year older than mine (1937 and mine 1938) and perhaps Catalan nationalism and their tug of war with the central Republican Government became more intense in that one year until, in May of 1937, the Central Government abolished the Comissio d'Industries de Guerra de Catalunya(CGI) and created the Subsecretaria de Armamento (in Castilian) which then took over all weapons production in the entire Republican (Red) zone ...my second rifle, made under the auspices of the Subsecretaria , is also dated 1938 , although I'm sure there are some 1937 dated specimens around.

    Some Chinese Mausers.
    Notes, left to right:
    1. Note the Banner says MA正中ER. The two characters read Zhong Zheng (right-left), Chiang Kai Shek's wartime name.
    2. Chinese Mauser Banner copy in an FN30 style stock.
    3. Chinese vz24 look-alike. The inscription is illegible.
    4. Gongxian Arsenal Type 24. For a short time in 1935, the crest said "Type24" instead of "Zhong Zheng Shi" (=Chiang Kai Shek Type).
    5. Guangdong Arsenal short rifle.
    6. Zhejiang Iron Works Type77.
    7. Late Chiang Kai Shek Type with Arsenal 1 banner.
    8. Type32. An FN30 re-arsenaled into a Chiang Kai Shek Type.
    9. FN24 Chinese contract dated 1931.
    10. Belgian Gavage Mauser, Chinese contract.

    Those are some very unusual crests.

    Anyone ever see this one a Brazilian 1907 Mauser Verguerio made by DWM Berlin for Forca Publica Distrito Federal (F.P.D.F.) Being borrowed under public fair use.

    These are known. See p. 63-64 in MMROW 5th. Probably made by DWM with leftover Portuguese parts.

    The notch on the receiver is common to all Mauser Vergueiros. It does not necessarily mean conversion to a longer cartridge such as a .30-06.

    An early example for Mauser - Wurtemburg (Jaeger).

    I probably should have read a little more. You are correct it is in 7x57.

    I don't remember seeing it in the book, but I also don't remember which edition I have. I will check it out. Thank you for the info. I didn't notice it in the thread and I thought it was a neat take on the Brazilian Crest. It is not mine just figured I would share.

    Default Variations on Polish

    Comments: The photos got scrambled when the post was submitted!
    *Radom - PWB RADOM, FB RADOM without date, FB RADOM with date.
    *PFK Warszawa - early small crest, later larger crest.
    *Triangle FB (which is RADOM) and Triangle Z for reworked Gew98's.
    *The 1924 date is shown on a K98 which is one year before K98's were said to start being made. Note the metal plate on the front of the receiver.
    *The 1936 Radom is not Polish made. That is a Chinese copy. Note the error on the side view which shows "86K" instead of "K98".
    *The undated RADOM shows Chinese use. Some Polish Mausers apparently did go to China, and they still had their crests.
    *Note the differences in the Polish eagle.
