Can you help me identify this Bolo?
« on: November 06, 2021, 07:24:03 PM »




My serial is 587887. My gun has the Mauser Banner on the left side in the center of the milled square. Now, I'm wondering if it is in fact a 9mm vs other option. I just got this piece today so I'm pretty ignorant on it. In time I will learn but I've never had a Bolo before.


All the numbers I can see without disassembly match except the Bolt Stop which has a partially obliterated number which I believe is 484 on the top. It's missing the extractor which is the new style and 1.308" per the Numrich drawing. What have I got here. It came with a Repro holster and butt stock, cleaning rod, a couple 10 and strippers.


What is the best way to confirm the chambering? I appreciate any information you fellows might have.

Sight markings. I might add the SN looks like 1923-1930 mfg. per old guns.com

its a post war Bolo. it has been refinished and the grips replaced. You can verify the chambering with a 9mm snap cap by seeing if the bolt closes on it. Regards,
