While popularly known as the Spanish Mauser, the Model 1893 was used by a number of countries, including the Ottoman Empire. The 1893 Mauser was used by the Spanish Army in Cuba against U.S. and Cuban insurrectionist forces, where it gained a deadly reputation. The 93 introduced a short staggered-column box magazine as standard, improving reload times. The M93's stripper clip system allowed the Spaniards to reload far more quickly than than the American soldiers. The 1895 furthered this design with the addition of a low shoulder at the rear of the receiver, just behind the base of the bolt handle, which would contain the bolt in the unlikely event that the front locking lugs sheared off due to excessive pressure. This sporterized rifle features a fixed front blade sight, an adjustable tangent rear sight, and a 2-position safety. Its wood and metal are in fair condition and its bore is in good condition.
