Kleinkaliber Mausers were being produced with grooved receivers in about 1924, 10 years before Mauser produced any B series rifles. The original intent was to mount a scope. This was also about 4...

I agree that the use of such a high scope is not optimal. But, the original purpose of the grooves was not to mount sliding target sights! Scopes were available from Mauser in about 1925 and sliding...

https://riflemags.co.uk/ sells some new magazines for Mauser and Veore models. And they do (or at least did) ship to the USA.

Nice rifle but the serial number on the one you posted is 300077. It was likely made in 1945 during the French occupation.

There is a listing on Gunbroker (not me) for "Oberndorf Mauser sight hoods". They are a very good reproduction of the originals.

If this was assembled by Mauser-Werke this rear sight should have a matching serial number in several places. It appears that the rear sight has been re-blued.

Yes, I agree that it is likely a DSM receiver. I am not so sure that it was one of the ones that were assembled at Mauser-Werke in the 1945-46 period of French control. It could have been assembled...

The barrel contour appears to be the same as an ES340 in the 25000 range. The barrel does have the cutout for the ES340 front swivel, but the stock was never drilled for the ES340 swivel.

It is a Mauser EM330

I know, you have probably never heard of a Mauser EM330. But, it appears in some 1925 vintage catalogs. Bruno Guigues sent me this image from an early 1925 Mauser catalog.
