The 8mm. mauser action krupp-essen rifle
I too was wondering about my 8mm rifle owned by my dad (born in 1896) and left to me when he passed away. I purchased a box of 20rds. Wolf brand 8mm (8x57) and successfully fired 5 rds. on Dec. 26,2011. on a lease in Mason,Tx. I know almost nothing about the rifle as my dad passed away in 1953 when I was 10yrs. old. I'm pretty sure it's post WW1 and pre WW2 but, nothing else except it performs well. Any info. would be greatly appreciated.
