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.
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.
here are a few more of my mauser builds Starting at the top My 338 win mag on a 98 action hart barrel next a 25/7mm mag wildcat Richards stock hart barrel next a 2506 akley with shilen barrel double set triggers santa Barbra action next a 284 win on a 1893 action and next is my 419 tatcial santa Barbra double set triggers shilen barrel 1/14 cera coated Richards tactical thumb hole stock
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?
