Get a Remington Rolling Block 7m/m military rifle. I bought one and it shot excellent.

Hard to believe what the Spanish short rifles are selling for now. I bought my first for $75 and the 2nd for $125. They are great little rifles, but dang...$300?

Theres actually one of those at a local gun shop for $250

Are the Spanish ones the only ones in 7x57? Did Germany ever use the 7mm cartridge?

Whats the chances of me finding a semi-auto Mondragon??

About the same as me finding an unfired Remington Mosin Nagant for the same price as a regular Mosin.

Mondragons occasionally (kind of rarely) come up for sale, but the prices are really high.

I had the chance to buy a (supposedly) German Kreigsmarine WWII 7mm K98 used on a U-boat... It was ROUGH, had a good bore though. He only wanted $60, I passed on it and bought a No.4 Mk.1 Enfield from him instead.

I just happen to have come across some ammo and dies for 7mm... The Mexican Mauser at the LGS was in awesome condition compared to what ive seen on the 'net... But Im really not that fond of it, theres plenty of other mil-surps id rather have.. If I were to get a Mauser Id rather have a German one..

I wish these smugglers south of the border would drop a Mondragon instead of these SKS's and AK's!!!! (Hey a guy can dream, cant he.... )

The Mexican are very high quality. Most where rebarreled to other calibers.

Here is a contract rifle. Decent price.
