Maby a better photo of the crest? 7.92 is what the Germans call 8mm (Mauser) and off course Germany was the primary country to us the 8mm as a military round. Many Mausers migrated from there and were remarked after the war. What Proof marks are on the underside of the action?

You're welcome. I've seen one before but never owned one. Stick the picture in photo shop or something similar and give it about 70% more fill lighting.

Send us back a range report and have fun.

And one more question are these spanish air force mausers particularly rare at all? And why is it there are no more import marks?

That looks like a straight bolt handle, yes?

"...and an old German guy said there was a bit of an unsaid joke about the Nazi salute; apparently when they clicked their heels and raised their arm up in the air in a Nazi salute, they were saying, "we're in this much s___."

I agree about the Model 1944 Spanish Air Force thing, because of the crest and the ea serial number prefix.

If it doesn't have any import marks (double check at the end of the barrel covered by the cleaning rod) then it means the rifle was probably imported before 1968.
