Huge weapons stash raided

Looks like they picked up quite a haul of guns and weapons around Spain recently .
Thousands of rifles , including a lot of Spanish Mausers & Cetmes ,
even a few rare model A's and B's and the 5.56 Cetme -L's
A seldom seen Spanish CB52 assault rifle prototype , some of this stuff really should be in a museum..

The very 1st part of the video that's part of the post below is in Spanish so if that annoys you,
just fast forward to 1:30 to see how big this haul really is...

I never knew the Spanish Mauser to be the weapon of choice for terrorist

It looks like someone was equipping a small army
This is the first time in 25 years that the word cache actually fit the description

Thanks from Tommo and ray55classic

Thanks for posting this, Ray.

The fate of the "cache" concerns me, especially since quite a few of those weapons really do belong in museums and collections where they can be appreciated for their history and where people can learn from and study them.

My gut tells me there is more to this story than what we are being told.

Awh, they just found one of Century Arms warehouses. Seriously though, some of that stuff looks like it was in a collection already or belonged in a museum.

Wonder how much of it was heading toward terrorist organizations?

The Spanish won't be a problem as I speak it quite well.

Very interesting thanks.

Would you be so kind to give someone who doesn't speak Spanish quite as well as you,
the skinny on what he's saying ?

I feel like we're not getting the whole story

In the blogs at the bottom of the article it was stated that all the weapons were deactivated under a old Spanish law with made them easier to reactivate and illegal under current law.

Dang, looks like the LGS in my neighborhood I used to shop at back in the 1960's. And that was out in California, too!

Actually 10,000 firearms is not a large amount if a revolution is planned, but would serve well for those sneaky terrorists distributed throughout Spain, France, etc., etc. Keep in mind that any nation that still holds with a King/Queen as head of the nation is likely to experience an upheaval by the populace in their future and Northern Spain has been struggling with the government for decades, who knows? Spain has been a conduit for Islamic armies since the 700's attempting to overtake rest of Europe, especially France.
Battle of Tours in 732 stopped the major influx of Islamic armies and it is said that if that had not occurred we in Europe and the West would be speaking Arabic today. Old saying that "in 732 at the Battle of Tours, Charles Martell defeated the Moors..."

I don't know if there is any connection, but seems probable.
