I have a 1916 Guardia Civil with SAMCO marks. It is chambered for 7.62x51.

It is a fun gun. Pretty stout recoil when shooting factory NATO loads, but less with my mild handloads. Others have commented that it is LOUD.

It always puts a smile on my face, a definite keeper.
Just taking up space in the second-worst small town in California.
