Re: mausers?

I concur on the CZ actions. I have a couple of those myself and absolutely love them. Not all gunsmiths will work on them, though, because the barrel threads are metric and require some different tooling to cut the threads.

The current production Zastava commercial mauser actions are also excellent mausers to build a custom on. In comparison to a milsurp mauser, they require a lot less work and you get modern steel in the bargain.

If you choose carefully, you can have a very nice rifle on a mauser action at a reasonable cost.

Re: mausers?

i'll have to check out the cz rifles. I really like the mauser actions and did not know a cz was so identical.

Re: mausers?

Back in the mid eighties I scrimped and saved to go hunting in Africa. I bought a Mark X Whitwoth Express Rifle in 375H&H. It was made in Manchester, England, and had the Yugoslavian Mauser action. With the old Winchester 270gr. Power Points it would cosistantly clover leaf 3 shots at 100 yards and still does with my stock pile of that ammo. It has been back to Africa a couple of times. It's not bedded in a gorgeous walnut stock, never touched the adjustment on the scope and still shoots to the same point of aim. I bought the rifle new for $450.00, the going price at the time. Probably, except for a few battle scares, the prettiest gun I own.
