ID a "small ring mauser" firing pin

Here is this small ring mauser firing pin listing at eBayhttp://www.ebay.com/itm/Firing-Pin-f...item1c33822a20

It looks different from the firing pin shown at
http://www.surplusrifle.com/mauser93...mbly/index.asp

Does the eBay firing pin really fit small ring mausers? If not what is it for?

The firing pin on Ebay looks like a small-ring 98 firing pin, the one on surplusrifles is a 93 firing pin.

And FWIW, not all small-ring Mausers are the same. There were several: 1892, 1893, 1894, 1895, 1896, and 1898A.

I bought one like the one on eBay. I measures 7.5" overall length, even longer than 98 mauser firing pin which is 7.37" per info at Hoosier website.

My Spanish 93 small ring firing pin is only 6.8" long. The eBay firing pin has 2 lugs at the end and other Mauser firing pins have 3 lugs. The front pin length is the same length as my 98 firing pin but the rear portion is longer. Can anyone tell me which mauser it is for?

You most likely have a Mauser Magnum firing pin.

Here's the pictoral listing of the dimensions of most Mauser firing pins, @ Hoosier:

I wondered about the magnum mauser pin but seems like the magnum should have longer front and same length rear compares to std mauser according to the info at the website. This is opposite to what I have. The pin has "EN" marking if that means anything. Any Enfield firing pin has the mauser style rear lugs? Could it be for some sort of Enfield?

My opinion is that it's for a Model 1917 Enfield. I think I see an E for Eddystone on it.
