    Default Recent Addition Chilean Model 1935

    My 2nd venture into the plethora of South American Mausers netted me this from my last Gun Club Swap Meet. I just could not resist the fit and finish. Turns out from what I now read that this was indeed a good catch. All matching as far as I can see.

    Very nice. I have a couple Chilean Model 1935's. The fit and finish is incredible. Same thing with the blue and the stocks. It's hard to believe that anyone ever would have schlepped these to the woods. I would be curious to know what it would cost a manufacturer to recreate this now. I would bet that in today's dollars it would be very expensive to produce.

    Yeah these carbines are really a work of art. I love the fire bluing on these South American Mausers, they're just absolutely gorgeous.

    In my personal opinion. If a high-end firearms company made something like this today my guess it would cost you probably $4,000-$5,000 or more. And would it be just as good and quality? I don't think so.

    I’ve heard an original style Mauser 98 action itself is/would be around 3500 to make today, not to mention the entire rest of the rifle. There is a German company that still builds the original style action, I believe they are the maker for “Mauser” these days.

    A modern company would cnc all the parts from solid, and not forge them into blanks first.

    Gorgeous! I've never been terribly into South American contract Mausers but a nice Model 1935 Chilean is def one I wouldn't mind picking up someday!

    I too love these Chilean Police carbines too... and still have SN 142, which has a dated & numbered sling. These guns are one of the best Mauser made IMO. They only numbered slings on the first 200 or so... and only made 10K in the contract.
