A "mauser" by any other name...
« on: July 12, 2015, 01:40:57 AM »
It's always bothered me "The Mauser Story"

Quite simply these are police officers trained in identifying weapons - i understand them missing it at a glance (as the record shows) -

I have trouble with the paper work they wrote after they brought it back to the shop and very distinctly identified this gun as a "7.65 Mauser"

Also worth noting BOONE swore an Affidavit to the fact that a Mauser was identified on 11/22/1963, Weitzman swore an Affidavit on 11/23/1963.

Also of note, these were Deputy Sheriffs...where were the police detectives?
The people who should have been gathering evidence were nowhere to be found, they were not present during the search of the TSBD, this could have been by design.

From the WCR...

Constable Deputy Sheriff Weitzman, who only saw the rifle at a glance and did not handle it, thought the weapon looked like a 7.65 Mauser bolt-action rifle.

It gets worse Bob..

on the 25th Weitzman writes it again in an affidavit to the FBI and Ball tries to confuse record with DPD report Mauser "type" bolt action-

Weitzman lies - Ball tries to twist it

No one officially knew what kind of rifle it was until 6:15 that evening when Day walked it through the DPD and told reporters it was an Italian rifle made in 1940. But there was a lot of erroneous reports about the rifle prior and after that moment. Seen here in this video made by DVP. (one of my favs) But there is no room for mistakes for you Cters. Its just low hanging fruit to feed your obsession.

In 1986 Boone had the opportunity to clear the record once and for all in the mock-trial...

He could say he simply made a mistake...Let's see what he said

Boone clears all it up in this video, go to the 20:00 mark. Boone knew there were military surplus weapons around and he knew he was looking at one when he seen it appear from the boxes. He also knew the only military Mauser was a 7.65 Argentine Mauser made in Germany and he assumed it was a Mauser because of the bolt action, told people his opinion, and it was heard by a reporter and it went out that way. Today we have kooks that cant accept the fact there was no Mauser because you klowns cannot accept people made mistakes and reporting was not as accurate as you wish it was and in fact was was all over the map.
