your never going to have the $$ to build that PRS rifle you were talking about last week

what does the Mauser do that your other guns don't

what is it's use for you or what POU (philosophy of use) does it fit.

yes , my son gets this same line when he starts talking about the newest thing to catch his eye

there is only so much money and time in this world how will this bring you happiness or is it just the dopamine rush you can afford right now.

Invest your money in lap dances not firearms. If thats a German made 8 mm with a nice bore for 300 I would buy it.

It's a Spanish M43 that has been chopped by Bubba. At best it's just a shooter grade if the bore is decent.
Built at La Corruna arsenal.

Hard to beat the mauser action.
Enfield would be a better gun though if you can find one.

And most important is the bore.


Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.

For the story about how these and earlier Spanish mausers made it here look up the history of Sam Cummins and Inter arms co.

the price is about what we see around here for a sporterized Mauser
it is sort of nothing special

they aren't light , they aren't short, finding decent selection in ammo is meh
brass is commanding stupid prices
the bolt break down tool that is supposed to be on the right side of the stock is missing
yet another bullet size to try and find and stock


buy more ammo and take the girls shooting then go fishing and call it a day

I know , not like me to talk people out of guns , it just isn't really anything special , the sights leave a lot to be desired it does have scope mounts.

Mausers are fun to learn about when they are in original military dress, we got one in the cosmoline , right of passage for a young man to clean up surplus gun in the cosmoline and learn all about it , but you get none of that with this.

it might shoot decent , but you have a bunch of other guns to hunt that shoot decent or better.

Boco, I'm curious as to the SMLE being a "better" gun. Perhaps a better battle rifle, but a poor choice from a reloading standpoint. Overly generous chamber and bore dimensions make for short life of brass.
