Default Mexican Mil-surps??

With all our guns going to Mexico, I decided that I want one of theirs...

I was reading about the Mondragón rifle, and how it was the first auto-loading rifle made. Also, for a few years after 1910 the Mexican army used Arisakas but marked with the Mexican crest instead of the "Mum"...

So what are the chances of getting a Mondragon or a Mexican Arisaka? What other Mexican Mil-surps are out there? Does anybody have any that they would be willing to share/show?

Mausers!!! The most prolific.
Mexican Battle Rifles

Don't go by the prices. You can find them for $150.00 to 300.00. .30-06 being the most common.

You might find a Mondragon for around $16,000.
