    You can always negotiate down, harder to go up.

    One thing to remember about the Spanish mauser .308 is that they used a lower pressure round that was dimensionally the same as .308 win/7.62 nato, I have heard it called .308 cetme or 7.62 cetme? Some have shot many commercial .308 win rounds in them without problems but bolt setback does occur sometimes.

    Im building a small ring Spanish an the info is all overt he place .

    some say the cetme ammo was never used in these some say it is . I recently saw a thread were a guy did detructive testing an he was having the cases literally coming apart before the receiver has issues .

    fromthe research I have done the gas handeling from a sperated case is moe of s concern than strength . the rear of the bolt is un shrouded .

    many of the late model small rings do have a gss port up by the lugs . Mine does . the early ones did not .

    I would not want a case separation on a small ring .

    That model is a La Corona arsenal its a 8mm /7.92mm model, not the 308/7.62 nato reburb
    and is a large ring receiver these where made from 1936 to the early 50"s

    this is the rifle to convert to a 8mm deer rifle because the only safe ammo is commerical 8mm hunting rounds which are loaded weak, plenty of power for white tail and /or hog

    oh mine is extremely accurate, probably would do some serious damage to a blue helmet
    Sprat and sprat1 are one and the same.

    The one my buddy is selling is an FR8, so would be large ring. It is .308/7.62x51.

    Well that's a different horse altogether. I wouldn't mind having a large ring 308 Spanish. I see prices ranging from $300 to $400.

    There's one at a shop here in Vt that's been there all summer for 225. And it's in half way decent "as issued" VG+ condition. Myself I wouldn't give 2 cents for a small ring Spanish unless 7x57 and pristine sense in that configuration there relatively rare now. Then I wouldn't be buying it for a shooter anyhow, just as a collectible.

    Not trying to put it down, but around here there a dime a dozen, I see them all the time for <200.
