Picked up an FR-8 Mauser today at the gun show. Real nice, looks like someone tried to refinish the stock as it has run and dried. Nothing that I can't fix.

Paid 180$.

You got a good deal, as prices here generally run around $250 - NRAJoe made out like a bandit!! :kinky:
I paid $225 for mine.

Lots of fellers on the Gunboards.com CETME/FR8 forum are in search of the
FR8 rifles, and demand can run the prices up. They can get positively ridiculous on the gun auction sites!

Joe did your bolt seem loose when it was not loaded? When the bolt is set to fire it has a nice firm feel to it but when it is in a safe position it seems loose.

Yeah, it was a little loose. Never checked for accuracy...put 20 rds through her and put her away...didn't care for the sights or the recoil.
