Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

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.

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

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.

Second Shortest Military Mauser I know of but this one is in 8mm Mauser whereas the Mexican FN Model 1924 is 7mm ...

Re: Brazilian 1908 non matching Long rifle.

For ammo I second the FN from the 1970s. Also Chilean Military Surplus. If newer than I believe 1973 it is non corrosive. That 1930s FN is best to pull for components. Congrats on your purchase. I decided to pass on the 30’s FN ammo. Other expenses have arisen, don’t ya know. Now the trick will be ...

Prices are all over the place for the 1908 Brazilian I bought one last year all matching for $400 shipped at local auction. Seen mixmasters in much...

Both rifles were bought by known Finnish Collectors. Final price about $4,000 each. I'm guessing repro ...

Re: Another Mas 36

Anyone in America looking for a MAS-36 local guy has one for sale marked and matching everywhere but the forestock is not numbered. Great condition. Cursive L block 80xxx. Would that make it 1945? He is asking $550. If interested PM me.
