I'm in Tenn. right now(using my Az. CCW!:D ), but before I left Kali. I used my C&R to snap this up. It is a long rifle (29.5" ) Steyr made Chilean Mauser 1912/61 in .308 Win for $125. It is in AS NEW condition with the arsenal shiny reblue and finished stock! :what: I think these are rebored from 7mm but a fiber optic exam of the chamber reveals no sleeving ect. so maybe it's a new barrel! Certainly was never issued. I have NOT found importer marks yet, but maybe it has somewhere.:scrutiny:
My wife took my digital camera to europe(I won't go to phrance and spain - my vacations are Tenn. and Az.) so I won't post on this thread until the 20th. , but in the mean time I'll range test it, the trigger is nice and about 5 pounds! I thought it was an Argie when I first saw it, then I recognised the Chilean crest. The gun shop thought it was bubbaized -reblued and rechambered:D hence the cheap price. This is by far the nicest condition visually of any of my extensive milsurp collection.I like the balance and everything about this rifle, the workmanship is exquisite and it IS a 98 pattern mauser in .308 no less:D :D . My 1935 Brazilian 7mm carbine bayonet fits and is pretty much correct, as far as I can tell!
