Question
How do I find out about
a Mauser ser#92162m,  on reciever wz29
FB RADOM 1934

Answer
I am assuming that it is a K98, but it might be Gewehr98 the longer version used in WWI and later.


http://mauser98k.internetdsl.pl/kodyen.html  German mauser serial numbers could not find it on here.

Check out this list of turkish Mauser numbers:

This link shows the factories in Germany producing rifles in 1934

If you cannot find anything close it might be a mauser made under license by a foreign country.  Several in S. America, Chile, Bolivia and others used the Mauser and some were licensed to make them.
