1916 spanish mauser short rifle
Anyone familiar with the 1916 short rifle accuracy wise? Just finished a restoration of one in 7x57 mauser. Reblued and refinished. Ironed out the dents. I put a lot of work into it. Just wondering what others experiences with one of these has been.

Picked mine up several years ago. It will shot minute of deer at 100+ yards all day long. On target, I can get about a 2 inch group at 100 yards with the battle sights on a good day.

When I got it mine needed parts too. Mag spring, sight protector, firing pin spring, and the extractor was nicked up, and the feed ramp liked to grab the tip of the bullet and misfeed.
Got the springs from wolf gun springs. I just buffed the extractor and after some careful dremel work the feed ramp has no issues. I put maybe 50 rds thru it and it was 1/2 inch right at about 85 yds after drifting the front sight.

I heard the .308 ones were a mixed bag. Some are awesome some are terrible. I was tempted to get one in .308 but I had heard that there was a possibility of receivers not handling the pressures.
