If the receiver is Israeli, made by FN, pretty sure they were made in 7.62 and not rechambered for it.

That price is VERY high, even for CA. Israeli mausers marked "7.62" in big letters on the reciever ring were rebarreled to 7.62s51 NATO, not rechambered, no matter who manufactured the original receiver. Never heard of problems with headspace; they usually shoot very well. But $700 is a ridiculous price, IMO.

Check gunbroker.com for more realistic prices. Unless that rifle is FLAWLESS, it should fall in the $300 to $400 range. Bear in mind those rifles are all reworks, so there are some really nice ones out there. Others are not so nice, because they did a tour with the Guatemalan navy before being imported here. Pitting below the wood line is common on those.

Nice Israeli replacement stocks are not too hard to find. I got a BRAND NEW one at a local shop for $25 just a couple years ago.

A real Israeli bayonet & scabbard are worth another $100.

Just another reason why it is still worthwhile to pay $30 for a C&R FFL (good for 3 years).

Don't be concerned with issues related to head space on Israeli Mausers, unless the bolt is not matching. Most all of them which were imported by Armscorp direct from Israel had excellent or new barrels. The more recent Century imports which came from Guatemala will have crappy and poor barrels.

In regards to price unless they look like either of the two rifles below that price is way to high.

Really want one of these. Great platform and a readily available cartridge, my only hesitations are their conditions like what has been mentioned above; well, that and lack of funds.

I used an FN made Israeli issue 7.62mm barrel to have this M48 redone to 7.62mm. Works great. The barrels are harder to find these days but they are still around if you are determined to have a 7.62mm mauser type rifle.

smle-man,
Did that Israeli 7.62 barrel come full-chambered, or was it short-chambered like US sporter replacement barrels?

Thanks,
Crunch

Yeah, but the Remington varmint barrel makes it interesting. If someone wanted to make a .308 repro LSR Sniper, that looks like a really good candidate.

It was short chambered to the best of my knowledge. I bought it from the Old Sherwood store on Parthenia for about $60 new. They had a whole pile of them. As with many other things I should've bought five instead of one!
