I happen to like a Spanish Mauser, as long as it's kept chambered in a cartridge similar to it's original design - the 7x57, no slouch as a sporting/game gun.

They make a nice lightweight Sporter/stalking rifle - so, if I had one that wouldn't shoot good, I'd consider an inexpensive replacement 7x57 barrel, similar to the $35 Yugo bbls that Sportsman's Guide had in their last flyer, & install it.

I've made a few, doing the work myself - ending up with a nice-looking Sporter for under $300, total, including the donor.
If someone needed a gunsmith to do the work, my WAG is that it's be economically unfeasible - considering that a new Marlin X7 could be had for under $400.
