post-ww2, mauser guys working on the sturmgehwer project exiled to spain started work on a gun called a cetme, i have a model c semi-auto. and i have the training bolt action .308 mauser rifle with the same sighting system and barrel as the other.
yeah, my friend's wife has one of those. she doesn't shoot it much. she says it feels too "foreign" to her. ha. i like those old ww2 rifles. i own a few mausers. go with an older one if you can help it. the materials started to get a little chincy toward the end of the war.
yeah, most occupied territories had plants to build them, in my house we have them from turkey, yugoslovia, germany, and spain. the spainard one is a post-war design that i mentioned before though. 1942 sounds like a good year for a nagant.
