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: FR7

Yea, if I start reloading for 308 I'd shoot it, but the plastic bullets are fun. Gives practice getting sight pictures. It would probably be fine with full loads but I have the FR8 to shoot those so I guess there's no need.

Re: FR8

The bayo came with the rifle when I got it. I never really got into obtaining bayonets for the various rifles. I always figured I could use the money to buy more rifles. Since I've run out of room in the house for rifles, maybe I should start looking for proper bayonets for all the different rifles ...

Re: Kinda special Spanish carbine

Marked Oveido. No Mexican markings since they didn't buy it from the Spanish.

Kinda special Spanish carbine

I've put up some pics of my Spanish rifle collection. The FR7, FR8, Model 1893, M1916 and the Model 95 saddle ring. I have one more from Spain although this one didn't actually come from Spain. Back in the 90's, TSA in Galax Va. imported a large number of mausers from Mexico. Mexico normally marked ...

Spanish model 95 saddle ring carbine

Dated 1913. Not import marked. It has the full length stock. Some where manufactured like this and some were cut down from model 1893 rifles as I guess there was more demand for the smaller weapons. Chambered in 7mm mauser, has a nice kick and is accurate at shorter distances (100yds). The rear sigh...

Spanish 1916

This is the model 1916, dated 1917. Possible first year production since they started manufacturing in 1917. In 7mm with a 22" barrel and bent bolt, this is the mid length carbine. Shorter than the 1893 and longer than the M95. The rear sights are flat sights but start at 100 rather than 300 meters ...

Spanish model 1893

This is the long rifle. 7mm. Like most Spanish rifles, the stock has some great looking grain. Not sure of the year manufactured, The barrel markings are there and nice but a bit worn around the date. Didn't matter to me as I wanted to fill this hole in my Spanish collection and the stock made up fo...

Re: 1895 Chilean long rifle

I have one of these. Metal's nice but the stock is pretty beat up. Half the cartouche is gone. They're good shooters. I seem to like most that take 7mm mauser.
You should post some pics of the bayonet if it has readable markings.

FR7

FR8's come around every once in a while. The FR7 is pretty scarce. Made from the older Spanish 1916's or -1983's, they have the small ring receiver where FR8's are large ring, K98 type receivers. This one is in great shape. I have shot 308 in it but now only take it out for fun using plastic bullets...

Re: Brazilian Jungle Carbine

If I remember right, the order was placed by the rebels but by the time they arrived, they were done for. Taken by the government and from the looks when I got them, they were stored in a damp cave.
