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.

MAUSER 98 SCOPE MOUNT | Brownells




disregard...that part number is the rail we used on my K98...they don't stock a proprietary rail for the FR8 any longer...I will see if I have a source for a approximate replacement

I had to look it up to see what you were talking about. Cool looking gun. Looking forward to pics and your range report.
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, FrankenMausers

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.
