    Is there a M43 Spanish Air Force Mauser Expert on board?

    I was looking at the M43 Spanish Air Force Mauser I purchased two weeks ago and noticed that there is black paint on the front band, barrel, and front sight. DId the Spanish paint these rifles or is this a gun owner "improvement"

    Thanks in advance,
    Bill

    One thing I do know about these rifles is that some were built from Polish kar98s, even some Germanicon kar98az's...might be worth taking out of the wood and looking under the rifle for proof marks left over.
