Today I went to the gun show in Fairbanks, Alaska and bought a unique Mauser. It’s unique because it’s a pre WW2 German made Mauser that is chambered from 7.62 NATO. It was made by DWM-Oberndorf for the Brazilian Gov’ment and was originally 7mm. In the 1980’s, Springfield Armory purchased it, and a lot of it’s brothers and sisters, from the Brazilians and re-chambered some of them to 7.62 NATO. They also shortened the barrel to 23 inches. Springfield then sold them to the public.

If anyone has any further information about these rifles or has a correction for me, please share.
