Sorry for the delay in getting photos of the subject rifle up.

Here they are.
Excuse the tall and unfinished front sight. The rifle originally had a Lyman 35 on it and it was gone when I got it. I found one and put it back on. Now I am working on getting the taller front sight that I made for it worked down to where it needs to be.

B. Dudley,
Now you really have my interest.I checked the whole thread it it was not said anywhere that the rifle was a 30-06.It is highly possible that the rifle was imported into the US, pre WW1.A couple hints at this are the markings 30.USA 1906, and Prussia."Prussia" was usually marked on guns for export(not just to US)but not so much for domestic use. Is there a name on the recoil pad?I am interested in this because I have an Oberndorf Mauser 30-06 ca 1912, with a homemade butt plate with a 13"length of pull.This seems that a recoil pad was installed, and I wondered what type pad would be contempory. Mine also has a Lyman 35 sight and I wondered if they were avaliable at the time; and here is another one from the same period.At least yours hasn't been drilled and tapped, as mine has. You have a very nice rifle.

Thanks for the kind words. The rifle is in good shape and the bore is pretty much perfect.
The name engraved on the stock oval is one of a US congressman from Minnesota. And he was also a member of the Pillsbury bakery family.
Like I said earlier, I tracked down his grandson and he said his grandfather vacationed to Europe a lot in the 1930s.

I had suspected he purchase it new at that time, but he could have bought it second hand and had his name engraved on the oval later on. Since it looks like the gun was built pre WW1.

The pad has a leather face and I have not wanted to damage it by trying to removing the pad.

The gun originally did not have the Lyman 35 on it when I bought it, but the wood was Inletted out for it, so I knew it was on there at one time. The rifle shot well with the leaf rear sight and front blade that was on it, but the rear leaf sight was so low that I could barely see it over the receiver ring.

That is a very fine rifle, I have one similar except in 8x57, action is a 1912 Oberndorff just like yours. You can see it here. > Nitroexpress site > Mauser Forum & Archive > bottom of the first page, I'm sure you'll pick it out.
Just out of curiosity - what is the "proper" torque for the action bolts on these / any other Mauser actioned rifles??
All take care. --- John

John,
A properly inlet Mauser could be considered "pillar bedded".Note the bushing visible in the stock,around the rear screw.The front of the magazine fits against the bottom of the reciever.The screws are then pulled up hard for firm contact and were often "clocked" so the slots were "fore and aft".Then when reassembled, the screw slots oreniented the same way.

Yes Mike, that is the way I've did mine for years, never had a problem yet. Just trying to get Jager to elaborate on his "torque" statement. I wouldn't want to miss anything and screw things up. --- John

This is a new to me Sauer in 8X57. I got a relatively good deal on it because the seller mistakenly advertised the bolt as a mismatch, having confused the Mauser serial numbers and the Sauer serial numbers.

Any ideas on a date? I have seen a dated list of Sauer serial numbers for shotguns and the rifle serial number (150591) may fall in the same sequence.

1909 146.301

1910 155.801

If so, the date is approx.1910
