cheap scope but the rifle looks modified and VERY taken care of. I've been wanting a scoped bolt action for a while, anyone know anything about these rifles?

specs:
7x57 (7mm) Chilean Mauser, carbine-length
Berlin manufacture - written in Spanish!
Star of David stamp on receiver
decent bore, very nice finish, many chromed parts
no way the stock is original judging by it's great condition

7X57 is a really good caliber, but was usually used in South America. Are you sure it' sEgyptian. Some pics would help.

sorry, no pics. Looks like it has been bastardized soem, but that's why it looked so great. (obviously refinished stock, sling swivels, etc.)

I don't beleive they ever used 7mm, 8mm yes.

you are correct, updated with correct specs after further investigation

I meant, you are correct that it is not Egyptian, as those are 8mm and the Chileans are 7mm. Sorry for the confusion.

DWM/Ludwig Lowe/ect. never made a piece of junk. 8mm is cheap at the moment. The Chileans never fought two major wars. They weren't worn out. Chilean Mausers are like grade A condums in a 75 year old man's nightstand. High quality, lots of history, excellent intentions, but rarely used. Offer $75, have cash, make sure its 8mm, 7x57 is not cheap.
