Re: Mauser Build (Pics to come)

First off dont bake on anything. The best thing you can do is get some Dura Coat and clean your rifle real good then spray a few coats of Dura coat finish on it. I have three Mausers and I've done one so far and the others will follow soon. Get the on that dosent require baking, it takes up to a month to cure. Did you do any inleting before you put the action in the stock???? Boyds tells you in the instructions to do the final finishing your self. Havent had any problems with their stocks. It takes a while to get a Mauser to fit the way it should. Keep trying and it will be a great fit and a good rifle that is a blast to shoot.

I thought about the Duracoat. Put some on a M77 and it turned out nice. May just have to do it afterall.

As I got into it, I really admire the design of the Mauser. Smarter folks than me doing that old designing.

well Shane, I use CLP and oil the heck out of the actions, this action is so clean because it was covered in cosmoline for a long time.
I don't know where you live, it must be Malaysia or something, I live in Washington and have pretty high humidity and am not having any rust problems but CLP is great for stoping rust in its tracks. As for "Pro basket-ball player hands" that is great! Im 6'4" and could palm a 20 pound medicine ball haha

I have a FN mauser in 240 Wby and have killed a truck load or so of antelope beyond 800 yards with it. Longest kill to date is 1140 yards. I have also killed a couple of truck loads of deer with it.

Needless to say, accuracy is extremely good.

Drisnylan,, Get a new trigger with side safty, Bold Optima good trigger, and a new bolt shroud. From there you have a good starting point. 6.5x55 is a great cartrige and a blast to shoot

Re: Mauser Build (Pics to come)

Be aware that if you go with a side safety you will have to grind a clearance cut into the tang of your receiver to accommodate the safety lever. You will also likely have to adjust the inletting in your stock as well. FYI.

Regardless of what type of safety you go with, an aftermarket trigger is definitely worth while.

I believe that you will be very happy with the 6.5x55. It is a great cartridge.
