Well I cancelled my order after a week and no movement on a in stock Winchester xpr and ordered a mauser that shipped the next day. About $35 cheaper after rebate on XPR. Got gun couple days later. The bolt throw is only about .150" shorter than my 110 7mag. Mauser mag allows about 3.02" in mag but looks like mag has easily a quarter inch that can be removed from rear and bolt face would still be about a quarter inch behind mag. The trigger is mostly plastic with what looks like a sear engagement screw that is glued in place. The weight adjustment screw in trigger blade went below 1lb but not sure how low it would go as I went back to just over 1lb. No overtravel adjustment. Will get it sighted in tomorrow.

Well we may never know as gun was returned for service. However we will know how good customer service and warranty is? I was alittle concerned when the manual has no address for warranty other than Germany. My warranty card has to be filled out within ten days(I didn't get one). I had gun 1 and 1/2 days and never shot it.

What was the problem? Also you may need the longer magazine if you want to shoot the longest bullets like the 156 Bergers. Not a must but would let you seat the bullets out farther.

Brother Elk Wallow, I'm sure if I'm going to shoot longer than 3.02" I will have to freebore the lead more. The gun was sent in for a quality control problem. I will know more after they see the gun. I locktighted the rail on so it's not going anywhere.

I shipped gun like one and a half days after I received it. They received it on Monday the 21st but were closed for the week for Christmas. I called this Monday the 28th they said 3 weeks or more. Season closes Friday. Dang.
