Custom Mauser Builds

I know, its stupid to start a pic thread about something I dont have. But it would be much appreciated if anyone/everyone who has long range hunting rifles/target rifles/etc built on original G98/K98/M96/VZ.24/etc Mauser actions to post some pics of them and give the caliber/stock/mods etc.

Thanks so much

Re: Custom Mauser Builds

Good idea for the pic thread, working on a VZ24 but it's not ready for pic's yet.
Really like Wilpenny's rifle, am curious if it's a single shot or a repeater?

Re: Custom Mauser Builds

its a repeater had to trim the rails a bit to allow for the larger case dia. I did the same on a 1893 mauser I built before this one[/IMG][/IMG]

Re: Custom Mauser Builds

1st thing to do on a Mauser build is to change the safety to a Kepplinger or Winchester side type. Or else your thumb gets stuck on the scope or you have to buy higher rings to accommodate the fire position. All else cool about Mauser's especially hunting in the field. Nice stock on this one, but they are typically hunting rifles, I think the guy wasted a lot of money on this type stock.

Re: Custom Mauser Builds

Beautiful rifles, glad to see someone doing them up. I have just 1 and a nice action to build one on presently. I don't know how to gunsmith or I'd build a few. You might know the answer to this question? I have a Model 1950 FN Commercial Mauser action in 30-06, could it be converted and built into a 375 Ruger or a 375 H&H?

Thanks if you know.



Nice rifles
