Not sure if this is the right forum to pose a question if it is not please move it.

While cleaning out my grandpa's attic I came across these two rifle's I did some searching on the internet and found a bunch of info about the "Mauser" but very little about the "Santa Fe". Does anyone know anything about these rifles? What caliber they are? What they are worth?

You should post this on the C&R forum. Thhe Santa Fe rifle is most likely an Enfield. A company in the 60's sporterized a bunch of Enfields by shortening the barrels and forends and installing conventional sights. The company was called Santa Fe and they stamped every rifle they worked on.

Any sporterized firearm will lose a substancial amount of its value over an original one, but they should be good shooters as long as the bore is in good condition and the headspace checks out.

Santa Fe also assembled 03a3's using their (cast) receiver and milsurp parts. I have one.
