    Hello everyone,

    I acquired this Chinese Mauser a few weeks ago. I've done some research, but have not found anything in this "dark wood" version. Could it be a different type of wood? Do you have any idea what it could be worth. Also - I have bullets for it. Is it safe to fire or should I take some precautions... Thank you for all input..

    I am unsure if it's a Chinese Mauser... looks more like a mannlicher based rifle to me. I would also say that the wood may be darkened because of age and the conditions it was stored in to X amount of years.

    The rifle looks structurally sound, but there is no way to tell if it's safe to shoot just based on pictuers. You'll have to bring it to a competent gunsmith inspect it in person.

    I take that back! It looks to be a Chinese Hanyang Arsenal Mauser.

    I agree that the condition of the stock is due to age and storage conditions. I also agree that it is highly advisable to have a competent gunsmith inspect this firearm...your health and safety depend on it, friend...
