Spanish Mausers

#1
Picked up 3 1916 Spanish Mausers from the current OWS deal. They are advertised as functional with cracked stocks. Defiantly need some TLC but that is the fun.

Greetings
How are the bores on those ? 7mm is one dandy cartridge !
Bought several of the 1916 Small Rings the Israel Defense Forces re-barreled to 308 30 years ago. Well used stocks similar to yours. Biggest improvement was to install a Timney Small Ring Mauser trigger. That cut groups in half. Next step is going to be a receiver sight.

Sounds good though. Maybe a long fat 7mm "torpedo" would grip enough to be useful.
Have a 32-20 1873 with pitted interrupted rifling that will still hold minute of ground hog at 35 yards with a .315+.

my Pop gave me a choice of one of the 'mexican' mausers or a 91 Moisin as a deer rifle when I was a kid.
I took the Mauser.
I figured I could carry it versus having to drag that Moisin around or drill the stock for some wheels.
