I know these are dumb questions for Mauser enthusiasts but I don't know. Did they ever mod them to 8x57. I'm looking at one now the guy tells me is in "regular 8mm" but I don't think he knows. I don't reload anymore so caliber is a deal breaker for me. thanks.
I don't think any of the South American Mausers were converted to 8mm. Many were converted to .30-06. Most which were converted also had a small groove cut in the receiver ring to accommodate the longer .30-06 round.
