Finally took pics.
Had one rifle taken apart before I thought about pics.
They are all in rough shape and a mix of parts.
Ok now I can't figure out how to add pictures.

Finally finished the 3rd 1916 Spanish Mauser.
I did find another one at a sale. Needs a new barrel. Have another barrel to put on it.

They look good to me. I don't see as many of these as I did a few years ago. Nice little rifles. They don't always get a lot of respect.

I was just lucky enough to find two grotty Spanish Cavalry Carbines both matching numbers, even the timbers.They will need a good clean inside and out.
Lucky only surface rust and no pitting. Another project to do
Would have been nicer if they were still in 7mm
