Re: Political correctness?

The Nazi party had hundreds of thousands of member before WW2 in this country and some went back to Germany to fight with them. Should we fly the Nazi flag at our local, state and federal buildings?

Re: Political correctness?

Perhaps you didn't notice the nazi flags along side that CSA battle flag at the Charlttesville protest of CSA monuments. Were you blind or just dumb? People died to get rid of that flag too. You really dishonor a lot of vets with that remark, not to mention others. Mark Seems you are forgetting abo...

Re: 1912 Chilean Mauser Short Rifle rechambered for7.62 NATO

There are 4 variations available. 1) Rifle with 29 inch barrel, 7mm 2) Rifle with 29 inch barrel, 7.62 Nato converted 3)...

Re: 1912 Chilean Mauser Short Rifle rechambered for7.62 NATO

The cleaning rod in my short is also 15 5/8" but it is not matching so it could be from a long, but if it was shorter than 11" it would not thread in.

Should be the same as the original rod. Original Rod was matching to the rifle. I can measure one of mine tomorrow. Mine are still in 7mm but length should be the same.

Re: Just what is a Spanish Mauser?

I don't understand the question either. Some were made for Spain and some were made in Spain. Army Cook described it perfectly if you ask me.
