MAUSER ARMY RIFLE— Please give a description of the Mauser army rifle. Is it a good gun for hunting?
By Mauser army rifle I presume that you allude to the arm used in the Spanish army. It is the regular military musket style, and is made in two calibers, 7 mm and 7.65 mm, being about 28 and 80 calibers, as it is given in this country. They are powerful, accurate arms and excellent guns for hunting big game. The name “Mauser” simply refers to the system of mechanism, and Mauser rifles are made by a number of European firms and in different calibers. That used by the Spanish was of Belgian make. All Mausers are bolt action and six shot.
