ok , i got ahold of an old bolt action rifle today and i'm not sure what it is. i will try to add some pics,but so far i haven't been very good at it. anyway it says fabrica de armas, oviedo 1921. so far i think i found that it is a 7mm mauser. i have also been told they converted these to 7.62 nato. (308) how can i tell if it has been done to this one? there are no other markings on it to indicate caliber. it does have serial numbers that match. it has also been sporterised, ( stock cut down, and bolt pull lever bent down ) i think they were supposed to be straight out. it is top load and holds maybe 4 rounds. has magazine bottom plate release on front of trigger gaurd. can any one tell me some more about this rifle? i would kinda like to figure out what cal. it is before i go buying rounds to see what fits.
just another day in paradise
