  1. New Trigger for a old mauser

    Traded for a old rebarreled 30-06 ‘98 Mauser, only guessing that it’s a large ring. Love the gun it gives me something to tinker with but the trigger is just horrible, 3/4 of a Mile I’m pulling to take up the slack! Been looking at a timney assembly thats about $80 on eBay. Anybody got any...
  2. FN Mystery Mauser Carbine - .308

    General Firearms Discussion
    Hey folks, I got this mauser carbine made in Belgium. Has the 1890's proof marks, some czech parts on it, swedish 1.5' front sight, 18" barrel?, matching bolt/receiver/barrel #157. FN re-barreled this. My theory is that it was a m24/30 and became a Belgian reservist rifle tossed in an armory and...
  3. Swedish Mauser m/96 1916 w/ Elm stock

    Mil-Surp/C&R/Black Powder
    Though not exactly rare, I've been collecting Swedes for a while and just finally came across one with an elms stock a couple of weeks back. Due to the scarcity of walnut during WW1, they switched to elm for 1915 and 1916. The elm is definitely seductive! Being all matching with a range plate...
  4. My next project.. swede mauser sporter

    Firearms Gallery
    Picked this one up really cheap a couple months ago, it was missing its bolt but i grabbed one from a dealer i know at the next gun show. Have not checked headspace yet but will soon. Unfortunately the gun has been drilled and tapped for scope mounts. But it does have an old fajen made walnut...
  5. Need M98 Mauser scope help

    General Firearms Discussion
    Hey guys, I have a nice, Mauser-built, M98, barreled action (in original 7.92x57), produced in 1938. It would be a good military K98k restoration candidate, but for the fact that the receiver has been drilled and tapped for a scope mount. I actually know a fair bit about M98s, as I have an M98...
  6. 8mm Mauser (potentially fs)

    My parents 92 year old neighbor called last night and asked me to get rid of some stuff he has sitting around. He as 500 rounds of 8mm. To be honest that is all I know about it at this point. I sure don't have a need for any 8mm but is their a market for it? Value? Anybody need it?
  7. Non-firing Mauser

    OK. I'm posting this at 1:00 AM and have pulled a bit more of my thinning hair anfter d*cking around with Mauser M98 bolts for the past couple of hours. A few weeks ago I picked up a gorgeous Columbian 30-06 M98 Mauser manufactured by FN. It's been sporterized, but the work was professionally...
  8. 6.5 x 55 Mauser Front Sight Replacement

    Mil-Surp/C&R/Black Powder
    Looking to shoot in milsurp matches and my rifle's front sight is too low to shoot on target at 200 yards. Any place I can get a front sight that is taller that I can file down to be on target once my load is developed? I need something that stays with the original nature of the gun so I'm...
  9. Found For Sale M96 Swedish Mauser

    Mil-Surp/C&R/Black Powder
    Not sure where to put this post to be honest. Whether here, or in the Good Deals Thread or in For Sale (even though it's not mine). I've just found a beautiful M96 Swedish Mauser manufactured by Carl Gustafs with a date of 1911 stamped on the barrel. Shiny bore with strong rifling, a nice stick...

    Mil-Surp/C&R/Black Powder
    I have posted this several years ago. I thought I would post it agai for some of our new members. DOUG BOWSER August 8, 2014 MY EXPERIENCES WITH A MAUSER CHILENO MODELO 1895 In 1963, I was 21 years old. I lived in Manlius, New York and was a member of the Manlius Rod and Gun Club. I had...

    Mil-Surp/C&R/Black Powder
    EXPERIENCES WITH A MAUSER MODEL 1871/84 It was 1961 when I ordered a Mauser 1871/84 rifle in 11x60R. It came from Golden State Arms in California. They had two grades of rifles. They were NRA Good+ for $9.95 and NRA Excellent for $24.95. I decided to buy the $9.95 version and use the money...
  12. My 71/84 mauser with new information

    Mil-Surp/C&R/Black Powder
    Hey everyone. I know I already showed this off when I got it two weeks ago but I figured I would have a dedicated post to just it. From what info I could gather it was made in 1888 at the Spandau arsenal and aside from a mismatched bolt is a great find in fantastic shape for its age. My mentor...

  14. Mauser work

    General Firearms Discussion
    Does anyone on here work on or know of someone that works on old mausers? Preferably close to Jackson. I have a Spanish FR8 that needs a little attention. Headspace checked, barrel examined(front sight has either twisted around barrel or barrel is bent or combination of both) and if those aren't...
