The rifle does not appear to have seen much use and the barrel is in excellent condition. This is an very good example of the Mauser Model 1871/84 rifle.

Paul Mauser had been developing a bolt action repeating rifle from around 1880. One attempt was to fit a box magazine to the Model 71 rifle. He later developed an 11mm bolt action rifle with a tubular magazine in the fore-end. Adopted by the German Army in January 1884 this rifle was known as the 71/84. Rearming the army with the new rifle was completed in 1886. Authorities were criticized for retaining the 11mm calibre when it was evident that smaller calibres were more desireable and the 71/84 was shortly replaced in 1888.

In the book 'Die Hand-waffen des brandenburgisch-preussisch-deutschen Heeres 1640-1945', as quoted by Ludwig Olsen, it is claimed that the reason for the rapid adoption of this rifle was the result of a 'war-fever' in France to reverse the outcome of the Franco-Prussian War. Information that the German Army would be equipped with a magazine rifle soon cooled this fever and war was averted.
