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.

a few Spanish/Latin American Rifles

#1 Post by cwo4uscgret » Tue Jun 20, 2017 2:49 pm

In an effort to allow the "new" forums to grow, I will add pictures of my "Milsurps" as I can. Here are the Latinos and Spaniards:

Image
Colombian Madsen chambered in .30 M2, aka .30-06. This was the last bolt action rifle purchased by a country for their military that was almost but never was! They were not issued and eventually made it into the surplus market.

Image
1891 Argentine Mauser, no crest but all matching numbers

Image
Spanish FR-8 - every collection should have one!

I also have a Spanish Destroyer Carbine and a Spanish Mauser but I have to find where I've posted pictures of them...

Very nice. That Madsen is something I don't see everyday and you are correct about the FR8, everyone needs one.

I am personally partial to the FR7, but I have several 7mm Mausers already, and nothing that chambers 8mm :)

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

The FR-7 and FR-8 are 7.62x51mm both CETME and NATO is fine to shoot in them. .308 I would not use. I need a matching FR-8. I sold my bolt matching FR-7 but I did like it.
Also need a Brazilian Mauser M968 Mosquefal. The Madsen, M968, FR-7, and FR-8 are all similar. Cool looking military bolt rifles that were past their time but still very functional.

I'd love to come across a nice FR-7, or even an 8, I prefer the 7 as i've a 93 and a 1916
