    i recently read an article that the commercial mauser is about dead, but i like them the most of all rifle designs. just curious what others thought and who all liked and used the commercial mausers.

    I have a custom 270 win on the fn supreme mauser 98 action. It was allegedly built by po ackley. But, I've replaced the nice fajen wood stock with a hogue including the full length aluminum bedding block and rebarrelled with a shillen select match barrel.

    It's an excellent hunting rifle. Comfortable, reliable, accurate.

    Just about every commercial bolt rifle today owes something to the mauser 98.
