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.

Uruguayan Dovitiis Mauser Carbine

#1 Post by bitrclngr » Tue Apr 30, 2019 10:22 pm

I obtained a very beat up Uruguayan Mauser carbine recently. If you don't know what these are, forgotten weapons has a great video on them. Does anyone else here have one? Apparently the full length rifles are more commonly encountered. I'll try to take some pictures if I have time.

It's in 11 mm mauser?? Or is it 6.5 Daudeteau ? Reference library: https://www.libertytreecollectors.com/p ... oduct=4879

That is an odd ball. Never seen one at a show.

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

They a chambered in 6.5x53 Daudetau. An extinct cartridge that was originally developed for a French trials rifle. The Uruguayans are the only country to adopt this cartridge. Ammo hasn't been manufactured for over 100 years to my knowledge.

Interesting rifle, as only 10,000 1871 Mausers were converted, i would imagine not too many left lying around.
Good score
