View Full Version : Persian Mauser Bolt
Recently, I purchased a very nice condition Persian Mauser at a gun show. The rifle seems to have all matching numbers throughout. Every other Persian I've ever seen had a straight bolt handle. But the one on my Persian has a turned down bolt. Again, this bolt number matches the receiver and does not appear to have been bent or turned down in an after market manner.
Is this uncommon ? Has anyone seen one of these rifles with a bent bolt ? Thanks l
If it is a 98/29 long rifle the bolt should be straight. Carbines had bent bolts. Are you sure you are reading numbers correctly? Check rear sight for number meaning. I never heard of a sniper in these rifles. Is stock cut for bent bolt? Can you show picture?
Mauser Military Rifles of the World 2nd Ed. by Robert W.D. Ball Pg. 202 has a picture of the Persian Czech Model 30 Carbine with a turned down bolt. The Iranian Model 49 Carbine also has the bent bolt.
One of my friends had a copy of the book "Mauser Military Rifles of the World" that I was able to borrow. It turned out that the Persian Mauser I purchased with a bent bolt is actually a Persian Czech Model 30 Carbine. The bolt in this rifle is correct. Thanks, Guys for the information.
