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 Dovitis Mauser

#1 Post by burban89 » Sun Jun 25, 2017 7:48 pm

Here's my only South American rifle sad to say. However it's definitely an uncommon one. It's a complete mixmaster but the stock's in decent shape, it has the brass trigger guard, and the ever elusive brass tipped clearing rod. I first saw the rifle five years ago when I friend of mine bought it on a whim for $70 from a seller who had a ton of junked up rifles. My friend held onto it until just a couple of years ago and after some horse trading and $400 the rifle was mine for good. I had been anxious for the day he would sell it and I was first to the plate to get this as it is a very uncommon rifle according to what info I could find about it. All in all I'm glad to have such a unique piece in my collection.

Yes, very interesting. I had one but finally traded it off because I could not find any ammo.

6,5x53R? is this what it is for? I've one round I found in a box of "collector cartridges" years ago, when I grabbed it I thought it was an odd Carcano cartridge; that misapprehension did not last past getting it home :)

Stuff; Some of it is Italian, some of it shoots.
