Details

Produced in La Coruña from 1944 to 1958, the Spanish M43 was a variant of the 98k with a straight bolt handle, a front sight guard, a handle groove in the front stock, and a bayonet fitting allowing the use of M93 bayonets. The M43 was the standard rifle of Spanish units during the Ifni War. When Spain adopted the CETME automatic rifle, many M43 rifles were converted to FR8 rifles for military training purposes, and Guardia Civil service.
