Its a 1927 Fabrique de Armas made in Oviedo
All Oviedo Mauser rifles are 1893 or 1895 pattern rifles. I have owned several over the years, and they are OK rifles. If you shoot milsurp ammo, be sure to clean it well after each session. Recoil is relatively mild.

Make sure you wear eye protection when shooting an 1893 with milsurp ammo, pierced primers and split necks are a fact of life and the 93 action has no gas shielding like the 98 does, it relies on a vent at the breech to relieve any gases in the breech area.
