one of my faves...Brownells has an excellent Scout Rail setup for them...pictures when it arrives?I have been searching for one of these great rifles for a few years now. I was lucky enough to win one today from GunBroker at a decent price. Now I just have to wait about a week til I can pick it up and look it over.
Spain rebarreled K98 rifles for their Defense Forces in the 1950s using CETME barrels...it is essentially a bolt-action CETME .308 or as we refer to them, FrankenMausersI had to look it up to see what you were talking about. Cool looking gun. Looking forward to pics and your range report.
The FR-8 is a beast to shoot without a recoil pad!
The rear sight is a rotatable peep sight which works great and the front sight is adjustable.
They make excellent brush guns because they are so short but they kick like a mule!
Here's a picture of mine...(notice the recoil pad!)
Nice Rifle? Did you refinish it? If so, how? And what recoil pad did you use?
My FFL went on vacation, so I am still waiting to pick up.
