i just purchased a 7x57 Spanish Mauser. Fabrica de armas oviedo is the maker and underneath the name is stamped 1931.there are no other real markings on the rifle aside from another stamp that says A 1963 and the serial number underneath,also the barrel is only 18-20inches long. i can find absolutely nothing online about this rifle. i really want this gun to be my hunting rifle because it is shorter than alot of rifles and packs a punch but it has no way to mount a scope and the iron sights are horrible.
does anyone kno if you can get these rifles drilled for a scope or anything? also does anyone kno the range and accuracy of this weapon with the shorter barrel?
if anyone can help with any info on this rifle thanks.367.jpg368.jpg371.jpg372.jpg
