Hmmm. I had heard some of the Spanish conversions were safer than others? Maybe something like the safer ones have some sort of letter marking on them or so? Maybe www.surplusrifle.com
forums would have someone who knows the specifics. If you are getting into surp guns, that is a good forum to have access to besides this one. I also never had one, as I had read at the time of the alledged weaknesses of the Spanish rifles. But I think it depends on which model was converted so the warnings may have exceptions. You know how a story gets started about a particular gun and then it gets passed along as just a comment or something. Sort of like Spanish handguns, varying from horrible and not reliable or safe, to the modern models that are perfectly comparable to other similiar guns for quality.
