    Might want to look at Midway for a 98 barrel in 7x57. The "take-offs" I've seen are pretty rough.
    Somewhere along the way I have lost the ability to act politically correct. If you should find it, please feel free to keep it.

    Military barrels tend to have larger chambers than commercial barrels. This allows for functioning with carbon build-up and minute sand particles that get into the rifle during field operations.

    Default long throats

    Military barrels also tend to have very long throats for the old military round nosed bullets- accuracy suffers greatly unless you seat the bullets way out and grossly exceed the max OAL. Apparently the dimensions carried over even after eveyone switched to the splitzer bullets. In Remington Rolling Blocks I had to seat the bullets so far out they would barely stay in the case - in bolt guns you don't have that opition.

    I've read that earlier Ruger 7x57 barrels had the same issue of excessively long throats - perhaps someone can confirm or deny that?

    Was there ever a military Mauser M98 chambered in 7x57? This kinda assumes there are 7x57, M98 military barrels out there and I don't think there are. I once had a commercial Oberndorf Mauser in 7x57. I sold it for about $4000 to help finance a trip to Zimbabwe. What I mean is most who have a 98 in 7x57 don't take the barrel off and toss it.

    Default 1908

    My Brazilian 1908 appears to be a 7x57 - at least I'm going to shoot some in it.

    If I recall some of the other South & Central American countires used the 7x57 in 98s.

    An then were the Mexican Mausers but I think they were small rings.

    COTW says it was used in some 92's, then adopted by the Spanish military in 93. They used it to kick our butts in Cuba during the Spanish-American war, which was responsible for our adoption of the Mauser type 1903 Springfield. Several South American countries used it as well.

    Mauser "type" enough that we had to pay Mauser a lot of money for patient infringement before WWI started, don't remember if we paid up but we sure lost in court.

    Yes I guess you're right. The Spanish and Portuguese speaking folks on the continent to the south did prefer the 7mm in what ever Mauser style. A better cartridge than the 8x57 anyway.

    Here you go:

    Military 7mm barrels.

    These guys are a little "quirky." They can be slow, but overall, the stuff I've bought from them over the years has been as advertised.

    I have one, am pretty sure. Came off a 1912 Chilean that I upgraded to an Adams & Bennett. Still looking?

    I bought one of these 19" barrels, installed it, made a mannliker stock for it out of cherry. Sold it. On the third round, the barrel split lengthwise from the mussel back about 12". A single tear. No bulge. The barrel was flawed. I rebarreled it and rebuilt the stock for the guy, no charge. Glad I was not sued!! Be careful of these things especially before you restock them. I have an ER Shaw 7x57 in new condition, threaded and chambered for $120 if you want it. J.
