SN 12. Cal. 7.63mm. Mauser made approximately 30 Conehammer carbines that were numbered sequentially. All had ribbed bbl, flat solid rails and a pinned rear sight. This example has a 11.75″; bbl with a pinned bead front sight and a 50-500 rear sight. Chamber that is usually marked with a 3-line address “WAFFENFABRIK MAUSER OBERNDORF A/N” is covered by the front scope base. The rear scope base is sweated on, by brazing or silver soldering, onto the left side of the bbl extension recess. SN 12 is marked on the left side of receiver and left side of stock lug. Typical Conehammer features include long extractor and separately retained firing pin.
