  • Spanish FR-8 Mauser rifle chambered in 7.62x51 NATO / .308 Winchester.
  • The FR-8 Mauser (FR meaning "Fusil Reformado" or Converted Rifle) was designed in the late 1940s as a rifle to use to prepare and train Spanish soldiers for the newly developed CETME Model 58's which were only beginning to enter service in small amounts in 1954. These were created using the best of Spain's vast amounts of Mauser 98-based Model 1943 Short Rifles and attaching to them the barrel and sights of the CETME rifle.
  • The FR-8 would see combat service in North Africa during the Ifni War between 1957-1958, and would remain in service with the Spanish Guardia Civil (Civil Guard) in Andalucía until the 1970s.
  • This particular rifle was refurbished and converted in 1951 by the Spanish military arsenal at A Coruña in Galicia, and bears the accompanying "Fabrica de Armas La Coruña" on its reciever surrounding the Spanish crest. Unlike many other FR-8s it remains in excellent condition with a pristine barrel.
