Product Code: MAUS1943

The Spanish M1943 Short Rifle was made by La Coruna in Spain. It is based on the German K98 Mauser and is chambered in 8mm Mauser. The Spanish M43, was produced in La Coruña until 1957, it was a variant of the 98k with a straight bolt handle, a front sight guard and a handle groove in the front stock much like the earlier Reichspostgewehr. It is chambered in 7.92×57mm ( 8MM Mauser ) caliber. These rifles are in original surplus turn in condition and will have an overall average condition of high end Fair to mostly Surplus Good cosmetic condition. Expect standard digs, dings, minor stock cracks and bluing wear but all are very functional and should make great shooters in addition to being nice surplus collector pieces. Most will be missing their cleaning rods and sight hoods so no guarantees on those.

* About the Grading -The rifles have dents, dings, scrapes, gouges, discoloration and possible small cracks in the stocks. You can also expect anywhere from minimal bluing wear to a lot of bluing wear, and we have even seen some surface rust on a few. We have not seen any rust that would not clean up well. We do offer a hand select for cosmetics that will offer you one of the nicer looking ones if that is your desire but please know that even a hand select is not going to be gorgeous.... just one of the better ones in the group.

Now for the good news, as we said before these rifles have been stored intact in a military depot for quite some time. As such, they are as close to true military turn in Mauser rifles as I have ever seen. By that I mean that they do not appear to be parted together " Frankenstein " guns. Also know, that while we do not guarantee for matching numbers we have seen some that do match. In addition to that, these are very consistent in color and as a group have a certain uniformity about them that makes them appear to be true military turn in's which I am certain that they are. As a matter of fact, in that manner they are very similar to our Chinese military turn in SKS rifles.

We do not warranty for cosmetic's as we have tried to be as honest as possible in describing these rifles. As such, if the possibility of receiving a rifle that is less than a beauty queen is a deal breaker, then don't order one. However, we do warranty them for function and we think that they are a tremendous value as they are as close to military turn-in's as we have ever seen for long stored Mauser's.

Don't let my overly honest description of the rifles fool you. We always try to allow for the lower end in the bunch when describing our surplus because let's face it, someone is going to get the ugliest one there. Having said that, these rifles have not been as readily available in the U.S. marketplace for several years now and we are proud to be able to offer them at what we think is a fantastic price. Get yours today.

No Mauser collection is complete without the addition of one of these rare Banner rifles. .... Don't Miss This.......C & R Eligible

Important - As noted above these are arsenal turn in rifles and while we have done a dry function test here before shipping, the rifles have not had the bores cleaned nor have they been checked by a gunsmith. As with all surplus firearms the rifle should be thoroughly cleaned before firing. Also, please be sure that the bore is clear and unobstructed. Finally, a good rule of thumb with any surplus is to have your local gunsmith do a safety check before attempting to fire.

2 of 5 Very Questionable Quality for the money April 10, 2021
Reviewer: Wyatt Russell  
For one, there was indeed a small crack in the stock, but it must've been significant enough for the entire butt of the gun to break off during shipping. The overall visible quality of the gun seems to be ok, but that is only after the 40-50 years of whatever is cleaned off of everything. The bolt also has a little bit of freedom to move when it is nearly pulled back all the way, not sure if it matters that much or not, but it's getting fired while tied to a tree before i even think of buying a new stock for it.
