Just picked up a nice Spanish model 1916 short rifle still in the original 7x57 and I have some questions. The reciever is scrubbed but other than lots of patina and some light surface rust and pitting under the wood line its in very good shape. I paid $100.23 OTD not knowing for sure what it was so I don't feel bad even if I overpaid. I'm just curious how many of these were made, I know they produced them from 1916 to about 1951 so I'm sure its many. It's two or three inches shorter than any of my other mauser short rifles and is just a light handy little guy, I may have to use it deer hunting this fall. Any info you guys could give me would be of great use and appreciation, so thanks in advance.
