Hello
The Portuguese Viguero split receiver rifle was originally a 6.5mm long rifle and was altered to 7.92mm in an attempt to modernise their military.
It has a very short stock, and if not careful when handling the bolt, it seems to just come apart in your hands, and is the very bugger to get back.
I had one many years ago and if you think the K98 recoil is bad this one is something fierce.
