I had a small Mauser collection for a number of years that included one of those I've never seen a rifle so finely finished as one of those even the screws have the last two digits of the the serial number on the head. The gun and its predecessor the 71/84 repeater were light years ahead of anything we had at the time these are light compared to a fully loaded 71/84. I made the first rounds I ever shot from reformed 45-90 brass much cheaper than Betrum brass. If you do decide to reload Trailboss is the way to go. I had one of all the major design changes except the 1889 Belgium never could run one down. Enjoy that one they are a work of art
