Spanish Mauser, but which one?
Picked this up today, don't know alot about spanish mausers, heard there metalurgy wasn't of the highest quality. Tended to stay away from them because of that. But found this interesting little rifle and it was $50 and i figured why not. At first i thought it was a 1916 short rifle but im not intirely sure of that. Everything seems to look like the other ones i've seen except that it has a strange looking rear sight, all curvy. Reciever is marked Fabrica Dearamas Oviedo 1922. Is chambered in 7mm mauser, not .308 and has the earlier type of bolt without the third "lug" and shroud detent. So what is it?
