No gunsmith here, but am curious. Is the ammo still good ? Or, what does the primer strike look like after you pull the trigger? That is if the round is a typical centerfire. I've seen week struck rounds before, that did not fire, last one was an M1 carbine that I can recall. You could see the difference.

The other thing is not being able to confirm the caliber unless you could compare a detailed sketch of the round and the chamber ? How do they do that in a situation like that, if there is no real marking, or any information to go by?

Interesting dilemma on an old mauser, kinda why I am curious, always enjoyed working on firearms since a young kid, cleaning, maintaining, as well as minor repairs, nothing risky, if I won the lottery as many say, I think I'd go to gunsmith school, be nice even if no lottery LOL, very interesting to me!

You make a chamber cast and take measurements off of that.

You can buy cerrosafe here.

Been a while since I tried to fire it but if I remember right the primer had little to no dent in it so that is why I think either the firing pin or spring is bad. I do have the world guide to gun parts catalog that shows a good brake down of the gun and thinking about opening it up to see if I find a broke part or spring. If it is a bad firing pin I have a friend who I may talk to about machining me one since that is what he does for a living and has a lacht (sp) at his home. Just another one of those guns I got years ago from some one who owned me $$
