I have got a new itch...I want a Spanish FR-8 Mauser...Does any one own one and know anything about them? Any good deals on the net?

Thanks for any help...KC

The ergonomics suck and the rear sight will cut the shit out of your hand. Look on the gun auctions. They are dried up for wholesalers.

Mine is OK. I heated and turned the bolt handle, glad I did. It's a pretty handy little .308, even though with the short bbl it's a weed burner.As light as it is, recoil is a little hard. Sometimes it's my truck gun. Although it probably shoots better than I do with Sierra Palmas,I wouldn't want to take it to Perry.

Got one. Cut the "hood" off the front sight. Drilled out one of the rear sight apertures. That cleaned up the sight picture for me. Mine is zeroed for 165Gn Hornady SST's. Way better gun than an SKS, at about the same price.

I have one love it. I got mine for Dunhams about 2 years ago. I think I paid 120 for it and it came with a Bayonet. Mine was in really good shape compared to some of the ones I have seen at gun shows. I think mine came from Century arms. There is a store in Michigan that had some beat up ones. If want the info IM me. I have not shot mine latly. Here is a pic of mine. [img]http://photos.ar15.com/ImageGallery/Attachments/DownloadAttach.asp?iImageUnq=3935[/img]
