Default Belgian Mauser

I will have to get it out tomorrow and check that out. I see that they were originally chambered in 7.65x53. I wonder if my dad had it re barreled or ? I can't ask him as he passed away in 1982.

This is directed at Hiwall. I'm not trying to hijack this thread, just not familiar with the in and outs of the forum. I have two 7MM rem RB's a 1901 and a 1902. They changed the spec. for the 7 MM mauser in the 20's. Do you know what the original trim to length was. I understand that the current std. is shorter, and I don't want to buy more headspace problems. Again sorry to horn in on this thread.

1916 Guardia Civil. I ran across one at my LGS a few years ago for $100. I already know that someone will say that they were converted to 7.62X51mm in the 50s or 60s, but not all of them were. Mine is still the original 20 inch barrel in 7X57mm. Fun to shoot, and it is my primary deer rifle, even in full military trim.

Default Belgian Mauser

I checked mine today.Stamped on the barrel FN 1962 7X57. I have seen three other FN mausers at the gun show here. All were military, partly sporterized and all in 7X57 caliber. I don't remember seeing one in 7.65X53. I have seen a few Spanish Mausers that were also chambered in 7X57. I read on ask.com that FN Herstal chambered rifles is several calibers.

Your would have been re-barreled if it is military or is a commercial FN. That is a good thing if it is a commercial as it should be a '98 receiver. Pics would tell the story.

The M95 Chilean Mauser is a nice one. The workmanship is excellent. If you can find one reasonably priced. The military Mauser collectors love them.
