    Default M937A Portuguese with original sling

    Got this for two reasons. First I have been looking for about 20years for a really nice one of these and 2nd, book project. Came with manual, sling, muzzle cover and matching bayonet. Super thankyou-schon to Jon for all his help. No under the hood issues with this puppy as most of these have storage problems with pitting at or below the wood line.

    Will also remove the front sight protector and get a good shot of that. More pics to follow.

    Also included a page from the Mauser chapter on the Port. 937 contract.

    STUNNING EXAMPLE.

    Definitely my favourite export Mauser of all - I have owned more than I care to remember, wish I had kept the last one, but sold it to fund a Lubeck all-matcher

    Was it you or Eric that asked about slings to me a while back? Oddly, I found 2 original M937 slings recently, only bought one. Keeping it for when I get another...

    Here's the last M937 I owned and foolishly sold. ALL matching, EXCEPT the ejector box...

    Wow, that's a nice one. Every one of these I have ever seen is dog tired or has pitting under the wood, especially the M37 versions. You must be a proud papa!

    It was me. If you run into any more I'm interested. I could actually use several of them.

    Very nice piece. I have been looking to pick up one of these myself. I have been trying to find one with a matching bayonet so I always seem to pass them up. Beautiful find.

    Default M937a

    The sling arrangement is slightly different that the example pictured in laws book. Mine uses a small steel button that closes two slots while the one the BBOW has a sewn (captive)
    sling release, and has the h-buckle in additon to the leather slider.

    Correction - the sling in Laws book is not correct for the rifle. Its a Gew98/Std. Modell type sling.

    I am so busy I overlooked the obvious in the details in the page I included, the lower image shows the K98k style sling adjuster with button keeper at the other end.

    Bad me.
