GunBroker 887301905 Mauser Gewehr M1871 Barreled Cavalry Carbine Action 11x60mm M71
Check out the nice barrel on this 140 year old antique! No FFL needed on this antique which would be great starting point for building a shooter or historic reenactor, Pre-World War One, German Uhlan Cavalry Carbine. Though the receiver has some deep pitting, it's below the woodline where it will be hidden when the gun is assembled. I've included a few photos of complete guns for information purposes, but understand this auction is only for the barreled action. The great thing about doing a M1871 Mauser Cavalry Carbine project with this gun is its great barrel. It obviously started out as a rifle and the barrel was cut down to 25" It is remarkably fine with strong lands and minimal pitting. When you cut it to the 20" carbine length, you'll have a beautiful new muzzle crown too which should make for a accurate shooter. That was my intent anyway. Receiver is marked 1876 1877. This is just for the barreled action.
