Members, I received this rifle from a person who do not have a use for . This is now my newest addition to my black powder hunt arsenal for this 1884 era type hunts..it is also called the Mauser 43.
Although it is primary known as the 11,15 x 60R Mauser...reverting from a military version previously used in Germany...will upload more photos when I get my hands on it next week.
Here is a photo: (click on photo to enlarge )

Shootist43, this is a Mauser 1871 , 11.15 x 60 commercial rifle, it has a straight bolt handle, it was the last black powder rifle build by Mauser company ...before they converted to the Mauser bolt actions for smokeless powder...This Mauser is also known as the Mauser 43. There are excellent links on You tube about this type of Mauser, just search Mauser 43 on you tube..(y)(y)(y)

Are you sure...?

It looks like a Mauser M88...

By the way, the last black powder rifle build by the Mauser company was the M71/84, a tube magazin repeating rifle.

This is a Mauser M71.....converted to a sporting rifle.

HWL, thank you kindly for this information. As soon as I have the rifle in my hands I will take photos and upload to this page. I really would like if you will be able to assist me to make sure which rifle this is I got from a member on another forum. I do know the 1871/84 witht he single shot and repeating shooting due to the pipe /tube magazine in the stock front part...Flatwater Bill is currently working on it to bring two to South Africa next year for the Black Powder hunt...if not he requested I permanently export the two rifles to South Africa from America..this process is still an ongoing process for the past year...(y) The rifle in the photo is a beautiful conversion....do you hunt with it frequently and are there brass available for these classic rifles in Germany?

In the past, I hunted with it, but rare.... this spring, the rifle got a new stock, and now I want to use it more frequently.

What I need is a "1882 Era Black Powder Hunt" like yours...

Ammunition and cases are a problem.

I am the proud owner of 20 Bell cases, I reload, and there is an unbrocken box of 20 Dominion factory rounds, I will keep.

For sure, this is not a M71 and not a M71/84.

I will figure out what it is...

The cartidge is most likely a 10,75x57, an extremely rare bird!!!

Please measure th case length, it should be close to 57 mm or a little bit shorter.

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

i will knock off 10% off each deal if you take 2 so $18000 per package

look forward to your response

regards
Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
