    Correct! But I think it's from russia. I did some extra research (material was hard to come by) and it suggested that it was indeed russian.

    Points for all! If I had any...

      • OK. To make a little bit harder, one must name the model, the country that made it and what famous war it was used at.

          • It looks exactly like an Arisaka type 30, 38 or 99.

            Except for the shape of the Trigger guard and the groove under the barrel.

            Hmm...

            Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

              Fuzzy picture, but I will give it a shot (no pun intended) This looks similar to the Serbian Mauser, Model 1910. It is commonly mistaken for the Spanish Model 1893. Now if it is the Model 1893, I would have to say the Spanish Civil War.

              • That rifle just almost look like early model of Springfield M1903 Bolt-action rifle, but I think I am wrong.

                  • Congratulations PacificSkyGames, it is the Spanish Mauser of 1893. I'm not sure how much it was used in the spanish civil war.
                    But I do now that the 7 x 57 mm Mauser rifle was the standard armament of the Spanish forces during the Spanish American War. The weapon, firing smokeless powder, was far superior to the Springfield trapdoor rifle carried by most American volunteer units, and also to Krag-Jorgenson Rifle carried by the U.S. Regular Army troops and the "Rough Riders". The effectiveness of these new 7mm rifles were soon felt by the U.S. in the Spanish-American War of 1898. Theodore Roosevelt reported on the difficulties of locating the Spanish at Las Guasimas commenting "...as we advanced we were, of course, exposed,...But they themselves were entirely invisible. The jungle covered everything, and not the faintest trace of smoke was to be seen in any direction to indicate from whence the bullets came." The effects of the superior Spanish weapons were again felt at San Juan Hill and El Caney. This experience led to the U.S. development of the 1903 Springfield after being bested on the field of battle by the Model 93.
                    The Mauser 93 was the basis for the development of the American rifle Springfield M1903, and it was intended to be used by “first line” or regular troops.

                                Looks like a water cooled .30 Cal, Browning.
