The Fusil Automatico Sistema MR Modelo 1932 was a Spanish prototype semi-automatic rifle made by Mariñas and Ramirez de Arellano in Oviedo for the Spanish government, but was rejected.

History[edit | edit source]

At the start of the 1930s, the National Arms factory of Oviedo made an attempt to make a semi-automatic rifle to be adopted by the Spanish army. It was rejected on the peculiar notion that the Army staff thought that the common soldier would waste too many bullets with a semi-Auto.

Design Details[edit | edit source]

Not much is known about the intricate details of the MR 1932, except that it had a gas trap system like the Bang rifle and a rotating locking bolt.

Ammunition[edit | edit source]

The gun uses the common 7×57mm Spanish Mauser round.
