Mauser safety issue
What seems to be a Peruvian Mauser, I have been told it is some sort of short rifle, and the safety lever orientation is not like any I have seen.
Receiver marking: Cz.ZBROJOVKA AKC. S PDLVBRNE
Ring markings: There is a crest but it is not in the best shape
serial # 043XX
I am puzzled with what seems to be a 180 degree reversal of the safety set up on my Peruvian Mauser as compared to my CZ.
The shroud/hood - cocking tang - Peruvian Mauser is on the left.
The shroud/hood- and safety from the CZ is on the right.
Notice the radius that is milled out on the left side of the shroud (Peruvian Mauser) and compare that to the CZ on the right, almost as if this is set up as a left hand safety.
Notice the milled out half moons and flat edge on the left safety and it's orientation to which way the handle is pointing, compare it to the CZ safety on the right, seems to be 180 degrees apart. The assembly is opposite also when attaching the safety to the shroud/hood.
Thank you for your help
