It is a "1916" Mauser. I've seen these with both 93 and 95 bolts. Another quirk noticed is that some of the actions had been cut back at the front ring. Apparently, this was done to facilitate rechambering/reboring the 7x57 to 7.62x51(.308). I've found a couple of these actions with this front ring cut back while others were not. I have one laying on the shelf that the customer brought in to be rebarrelled with a ready to install barrel. Unfortunately, the threaded barrel shank is about .1" longer than the threads inside the front action ring.
