What, you’ve never heard of a “Wauser?” During the Chinese Warlord era, pistols of every description were bought from major Western gunmakers—and then indigenous copies were made at a host of facilities in China. It’s not much of a stretch to say that no two are exactly alike.
In this American Rifleman TV segment of "I Have This Old Gun," we take a look at the history and development of the Mauser designed Karabiner Model 98AZ carbine chambered in 8 mm Mauser and used in large numbers by Imperial Germany towards the end of World War I.
Throughout World War II the Germans used and developed several variations of sniper optics and rifles that evolved throughout the course of the war.
In this week's episode, we'll explore the history of the Colt Walker revolver, review the Lockdown Puck and look back at the Abyssinian Mauser rifles.
