The 1895 Chilean Mausers are not unique and not necessarily a collectible item. They are however fun to shoot and have a rich history. they were made in Berlin at the Mauser factory and used by several countries including, Mexico, Argentina, and Iran. As far as value, you can still pick them up for about $200-300 depending on the shape they are in.
