I don't know near as much about the Mauser action as Shortgrass does so take this for what it
I steer away from Mauser's that were manufactured between 1942 and 1945 because they were
not worrying about quality (They just wanted to turn out as many as possible). Some of these
actions are probably good but some are not so I just avoid them. All of the other years are good
as far as I know. Maybe Ted will comment on this. I would find out what year it was made and
go from there.
Mauser's make fine rifles and millions have been used on custom rifles
. The only advice I have is
to use them on standard pressure cartridges (45,000 to 50,000 CUPs) I don't like using them on
the new high pressure cartridges (55,000 to 65,000 PSIs) because they were not designed to handle
pressures that high (Not that they wouldn,t) Just being cautious.
