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.

1916 Spanish Mauser in .308

#1 Post by Afeod » Sun Apr 15, 2018 11:11 am

First of all I want introduce myself. Total newb to c&r. So far there has been a great amount of information here. Thank you! I was lead over here by a member on another forum that I’m a member of (falfiles). So, here’s what I need help with. I recently picked up a Spanish 1916 project. I’ve got a good amount of parts, but I’m having problems finding parts lists or parts diagrams. I know I need a hand guard among numerous “smalls”. Here’s a copy of the only info that I’m working with:
“Barrelled receiver with hand guard ring.
Assembled bolt, complete except for extractor (has collar).
Trigger with sear and spring, assembled, installed.
Ejector box, stripped (no ejector, no screw).
Front and rear band springs.
Buttplate with screws.
Recoil lug.
Front sight with cover.
Rear sight base, on gun, and sight with adjustment slide.
Front and rear barrel bands.
Rear inlet sling loop (no screws) and forend cap.
Trigger guard with floorplate (military, no screws, no spring/follower).
Stock (broken severely damaged, fair-poor condition).”

Any help or direction would be fantastic.

I’m not too sure if my plan is frowned upon, but I’ve stripped the stock(not cracked) and I’m planning on media blasting the metal (fairly poor shape) then parking it.

I’ve built a couple fals and really enjoy building, I’m looking forward to completing this project, making sure she headspaces w/ a field gauge and take no her to the range.

Any generic Mauser 93 schematic should help you. Below is Numrich's Mauser section, below that is two links to Numrich's Spanish 1916 rifle.

Springfieldsporters is another parts site that has some 1916 parts.

ETA: Plenty of us have an example of this rifle in our collections, including myself. So if you need a picture of a particular part, assembly, etc just let us know and we can post a picture(s) for you.

Thanks form the links. Theres a good amount of parts there. I've checked Numrich's site and I see theres a schematic/parts list for the m98, but I still cant find one for the m93. I've tried to use my google-fu, yet to no avail. I've found a few parts that I need at Numrich, but I'd like to place only one order as oppossed to three or four. Thanks again

:shock: Why not buy a gunsmith special second rifle for 149 at a gun show or here and combine the two and you should have a complete but miss-matched rifle? You see these old SAMCO dogs at most guns shows- some are a $125 but the bores are shot or the extractor missing on most.

To old to fight and to old to run, a Jar head will just shoot and be done with you.

I did think about that. There was one on gunjoker that was a fixer upper, but it ended before my account had been approved. I know I need an extractor and I took bolt apart last night and noticed the firing pin is a lil bent... still looking for an exploded view with a parts list

Ha. That’s where I got this one... and thank you for the schematic. Alas, my google-fu is weak.

That's a large ring schematic. '93 is small ring, almost no part exchange. The nomenclature,however, is almost identical.
I was R.L.E.V.M. on our old forum.

Once I blew it up bigger I noticed differences. The bolt alone is not the same, so back to the hunt.

Yes it does. Thank you much. Ive got a good lead on most the parts. Getting on time to park ‘em. I need a hand guard and possibly a new stock. (The stock I’ve got is pretty beat). It’ll get done. I’ll keep the board posted. Thank you again
