Mauser Info

Been looking around a little but not sure I am finding what I am looking for so was wondering if anyone on here can give me some info or point me somewhere to get me there. I am looking for what some of the markings are for on it and what any history if any. I have no clue

all info on it.
Elektrostahl
Salzwedel
STMG
W. Bein
MOD 98.57.J
ROCHLING

Has a lot of what appears to be gold engraved designs

Any help or info I would appreciate it.

Like I said I know nothing about it

Re: Mauser Info

Elektrostahl- German for Electric Steel
Salzwedel- German City
STMG- Tested with steel jacketed bullets
W. Bein- Got me on that one, no idea
Mod 88.57.J- I would assume is a Model 1888 Mauser of sorts.
Roghling-again... lost.

Sorry. Got you started though

Re: Mauser Info

Ken S came up with basically the same thing I did. I'm thinking it probably says "Rochling", not roghling. Not sure exactly what it means, but I found references to it, pertaining to a steel alloy, and a manufacturer.

Re: Mauser Info

Rochling was a family of steel producers. They experimented with special alloys, niclel, chrome, etc. trying to produce more durable gun steel to win military contracts. They produced a special hardened artillery shell during WW2.
The decendants of the company today produce high tech plastics.

Re: Mauser Info

Ok.
Just a guess, but maybe the J designates bore diameter? I know the earlier .318 bore diameter rifles are referred to as "J bore" and the later .323 bore diameter rifles are referred to as "S bore", (or "JS bore") which was for the later spitzer bullet. Just a guess though.
I would definitely slug the barrel before I tried to run a .323 diameter bullet through it. That's always a good idea with any old Mauser.
