Those 7.62 marked 1916s were designed for the puny CETME cartridge and not NATO.
Then why this 1967 Spanish manual clearly showing 7.62NATO on the cover?

Kyrie sent me reams of printouts on the history of the rifle and cartridge and the behavior of that Mauser species when used with 7.62 Nato ammo.
The rifle with NATO ammo is destined to fail and it was a crapshoot when it would fail.
Care to share this information? I have researched hundreds of internet posings on 7.62NATO safety in this rifle, a lot of talks but have not seen a single valid evidence so far.
