G'day from North Carolina,

I am on a quest for some .43 (11mm) Mauser ammo.

Anyone have a few rounds to spare?

Also looking for parts or accessories as well.

Cheers,

Ed

Paddy, what Mauser you have ??? 
I got one of the 71/84 Mausers off the movie set "The Last Samurai" I have not looked into what caliber it shoots, since I got it! But couldnt leave it behind!!! Just because it was used in the Movie!!!! Got the papers from Gibbs to prove it also!!!!

There are a modest number of Model 71 and 71/84 rifles still in circulation. Many were imported into the U.S. and Canada many years ago and, like many surplus arms, can be found up to and including pristine, mint condition. Additionally, to the delight of modern shooters and collectors, Gibbs Rifle Company had located and imported literally a “cave full” of 71/84 rifles from South America. The rifles have been cleaned up, some have been partially re blued and restocked.
These are the ones from the movie.

Does your rifle have a newer looking stock and a blued butt plate?


In 2002, Master Armorer Robert “Rock” Galotti was hired for a new movie being put into production starring Tom Cruise. Entitled “The Last Samurai”, the movie was set in Japan during the 1870’s and featured spectacular battle sequences requiring hundreds of working Mauser rifles from the period. A veteran Armorer of dozens of films, including “The Matrix” and “Mission Impossible”, Rock set out to find the most authentic arms available. He contacted Gibbs’ President, Val Forgett, as he had heard that Val had recently acquired a large group of 19th Century Mauser rifles. These rifles had been stored for over 100 years in less-than-ideal conditions, causing significant deterioration to the wood and loss of finish on the metal.

Together, Rock and Val worked to take complete, original barreled actions and paired them with authentic replica stocks, complete with the correct cartouches, to create the guns Rock needed to successfully arm his actors.

Each “Samurai” edition Mauser M1871/84 is an original Mauser M1871/84 rifle that has been carefully cleaned, reblued, then had its receiver carefully polished as the original examples were. Minor parts such as the extractor, ejector and cutoff levers were replicated, as were the stocks and magazine tubes. The trigger guards were painted gold on-set as well to better recreate the on-screen look desired by the Director.

Yep!!! Mine even has the Gold paint on the trigger guard!! From what my paperwork says. the gold paint was applied because they could not get the brass ones in time for the parts they were shooting, so they painted them.

Are there rifles real or rubber?

Do they come with paperwork?

Try doing a search of your email with a few key words and see if it shows up.

Also do the same with the computer. Do the email first.

Do you still have the old computer? Someone might be able to read the hard drive.

White Rhino,

Is the butt plate on your 71/84 rifle blued or bright?

Are there any markings?
