    MATCHING NUMBERS INCLUDING BOLT, Boer War Contract Captured Mauser Model 1896 7.9mm Calibre Rifle By Loewe & Co Berlin With Boer Initials 'CV' Carved Into Stock. D 1253

    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 or initials 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 in nice undamaged condition and it cocks, strips and dry fires. The breech housing is stamped 'MOD MAUSER 1896 LUDW. LOEWE & CO BERLIN' together with number 'B9976'. Typical of weapons used in the War it has the initials of the owner 'CV' carved into the left side of the stock under the breech (illustrated). Both sides of the stock are impressed number '4'. The weapon has matching serial numbers 'B9976/76' on the Breech, Magazine cover & Bolt. It is complete with original bayonet lug, steel butt plate and sling swivels. Price for this historic piece includes UK delivery and deactivation certificate. D 1253
