The Star of David does not mean Israel lie service, the Spanish Civil War mauser has it. The original Mauser manufactures in Germany were Jewish , before Hitler was born, so no one would have thought anything about it. I’ve seen them on Turkish rifles too. The 95s were converted to nato 7.62 with a chamber insert that some say are unsafe.

I think I found it is a 1916 Spanish model 93 that must use lower power 7.62x51 ammo

Found this about the subject-http://castboolits.gunloads.com/showthread.php?348171-Star-of-David-on-Mauser

Nonetheless the mausers made for Israel after the creation of the nation had the star on the top of the receiver, I have one and from what I found on Wiki about 1/3 made for Israel in 7.62 had the star from what i read.

I'm pretty sure my Spanish is a M93, not 95

Long ago in Shotgun News there were Belgian Mausers, originally 7.65, rechambered to .308. The bore was in the .311 range and the accuracy reflected it. But for a cheap truck/deer gun -?- More recently there was imported a herd of Spanish 93's that had been redone to .308. Article in Guns and Ammo I think reported that HP White labs had tested them and the conversions were late made model 93 pattern, Spain used it until 1943 I think, and were adequate. Value? I paid $38.00 for my first Mauser in '06. Got ammo for $0.03 per (mil surplus). Those days are long gone now. Luck.

IIRC, the 95 has a flat bottom on the bolt...(could be vice-versa, though...could be the '93.)

in either event...the 93/95 (in standard form) is not recommended for high pressure conversion cartridges.

standard 93/95 are 7x57.

lead, follow, or get out of the way!

My Spanish 1916 chambered in 7.62 has that flat bottom bolt face.

Deacon - The Model 98's were chambered to 7.92x57mm aka as the 8mm Mauser. I have one in our family that was a bring back from the war.

When you allow a lie to go unchallenged, it becomes the truth.

A statement of fact: H&R Huntsman & Sidekick blued barrels are made of 4140 steel.
