Is this forum still costing someone to keep it running?  Money not well spent.
No extra costs. I have not had the heart to take it offline. I see it as a place for the old coots to keep in touch.

There's no manufacturer's stamp on it, only the date and the Italian proof marks.  I think it might be an Uberti due to the four-slotted nipples.  I got the loading tool from Taylor's but it has the wrong nipple wrench on the end.  Oh well.  Great gun.  I'm working on removing the stuck nipples.

I sold one to Smokin in 2008 when I was selling everything and moving to town.

I went to a gun show in NH last weekend.  Lots of good guns, no good deals, except for this Colt Paterson reproduction I found for $250.  It was made in 1970 - Pietta, I think.  Mechanically it's really good.  I might "age/antique" the finish.  I have a loading tool on the way from Taylors.
These are tough to find.  I had one that I sold a few years ago and I wish I had kept it.  I bought it from Smokin' Gun many years ago, and he guided me through the reassembly of the gun over the phone.

I got the Spanish Mauser a few weeks ago.  Last weekend I found this unopened box of original 7mm ammo.  The box is still sealed.

Cool.  Here's a test pic from last August.
It works.  Good to know.  Thanks.

I'd post pics but Photobucket has changed, and this forum doesn't have a downloader.

Yes it does. click on "Additional Options..." from the Reply screen the enter file name in the "Attach:" window.

I loaded up ten rounds and went to the range today (in the rain).  I used jacketed bullets to clean the barrel.  The rifle is so accurate it makes me look good.  It's a real gong ringer at 100 yds.  I'm going to look for some stripper clips to make loading easier.  Great rifle.
So, I might be a Mauser collector.  I have this Spanish Mauser, an Argentine Mauser, a Swedish Mauser and a Springfield M1917 .30-06 based on the Mauser design.
And no savings account...ah, screw it.
