Chilean Modelo 1912-61
 
Here is my Chilean Modelo 1912-61 (K98 action). It is chambered in 7.62x51 (Apparently this version is universally safe for .308). It is the short rifle with a 4-groove 1903 barrel fitted.

They are being sold up here in Canada for 325 dollars. The barrels are pretty much mint. The same company is also selling them in 7x57 mauser for the same price. :D

Thanks! I won't be shooting this old girl anytime soon. We are getting 80-100cms of snow today. Then after that clears away I am back to work. When I do I will post the results. I may pull the trigger on a 7x57 version soon as well. ;)

I just new 100 cm was 1 meter so I was able to do that conversion fairly easily. see guys being in high school has it's benefits.

My understanding is; these guns are not safe to shoot 308 but can shoot 762x51 safely. I'm not sure, check it out with the experts.

The 1895 conversions are questionable as they have a insert soldered into the chamber. This rifle actually has a turned down 1903 barrel re-threaded and fitted. The action is a k-98 type built by steyr in Austria. This type is considered safe for .308 Winchester. They are marketed as so here in Canada. :)
