Vintage ‘Last Samurai’ Mausers for Sale in USA

How would you like to own a piece of history… Hollywood history at least? The Firearm Blog reports that AIM Surplus is selling the Mauser M1871/84 11mm rifles used in the movie The Last Samurai. According to AIM: “Each ‘Samurai’ edition [rifle] 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.” Price is $395.00 for these C&R eligible rifles.

According to Steve of The Firearm Blog, these rifles were warehoused after The Last Samuari was filmed in New Zealand: “After being used on location in New Zealand, they were shipped back to the U.S. and have been stored in studio warehouses for the past five years.”
