    **This Firearm is deactivated to one of the pre- 2nd May 2017, UK specifications. As such it can only be sold and exported in its present state to customers in NON- EU countries including the Isle of Man and Channel Islands. Customers based in the UK & other EU countries can purchase on our lay-away scheme. The weapon will then be brought up to the EU specification and the relevant certificate obtained prior to the transfer of ownership and delivery**.The Boer Republics of the Orange Free State (OVS or Oranje Vrij Staat) and the South African Republic (ZAR or Zuid Afrikaansche Republiek) had been at odds with the British Empire for decades. Events led to open hostilities and knowing War with the British Empire was imminent, the Boers rushed to purchase firearms to arm their citizen-soldier Commandos and shipments of German Mauser Rifles were purchased by the ZAR and OVS States. It was common practice for Boers issued with rifles to carve their names and often scenic or religious imagery into the wood stocks of their weapons. This Mauser Model 1896 Rifle is one of the rifles purchased by the Boers. It is almost certainly one of many captured by the British during the War. The woodwork and metal work are all original. The breech housing is stamped 'MOD MAUSER 1896 LUDW. LOEWE & CO BERLIN' together with number 'B9132'. Typical of weapons used in the War it has the initials of the owner 'J.Grobler' carved into stock within foliate panel (illustrated). The weapon has matching serial numbers on the breech, magazine cover & bolt. It is complete with block & blade fore sight, flip up rear sight, bayonet lug, cleaning rod, steel butt plate and sling swivels. Deactivated to UK specification in 2016 the weapon cocks & dry fires. The price for this historic piece includes UK delivery and deactivation certificate. Sn 17610
