I have a 1916 guardia civile carbine converted to 7.62 --
Seems ok mechanically, but certainly not pleasant to shoot full power 7.62 -
I rather doubt it was pleasant with the original 7x57 --

I don't know why dennisca rifle failed to extract, but the extractors are the same.
Perhaps he had one of the south american ones that were converted by installing a chamber insert rather than a rebore, barrel set back and rechamber.
