Something to consider about hunting with iron sights on an old military Mauser is the point of aim/point of impact. I do not know for sure about the Spanish models, but some Mausers the closest sight setting is 400 Meters.

You may find that at the lowest setting it still shoots about 16 inches high at 100 yards. For a military rifle where recruits are taught to aim for the belt buckle, this is fine, but for a hunting rifle, it could be a problem.
