Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

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
