Is that a maple stock?

Interesting wood, whatever it is.

I never cared much for the Mauser action, they seem to be a bit overbuilt. I saw this one and couldn't pass it up. It is a Mac McCain custom done in 257 Roberts. A gorgeous gun in a classic cartridge. To dress up that Mauser bolt, I had a local gunsmith color/case the bolt shroud and the grip cap and buttplate. It is certainly a beautifully functional gun...

Wow.

You always seem to have beautiful rifles and all kinds of antique arms. Your one fortunate fella, and I'll admit a bit of envy. Just a bit.

Got this at a pawn shop early last year 225 dollars otd. I brought it back to life basically.
It sure didnt look like this when I got it.
They didn't know what they had.
Strong crisp rifling exc bore condition
They let me break it down and I took pics of the markings under receiver.
Did some internet researching
Went back the next morning and got it fast.....
Sako post ww2 customized Kar 98 8mm 1939 barreled action.
They was being sold in px,s in europe thru the mid 50,s.
Some one brought it back and put a nice fajen stock on it that I did alot of contouring on to get rid of the sharp retro angles.
And they installed a 2 position low swing buehler safety.
I set it up with
Burris low rings
Weaver steel bases
Sightron SII 3-9X42
( only scope I use, have 3 of them)

I intially refinished the wood and wheeler ceramacoated the metal and cooked it, wasnt satisfied with that. Then I got it cerracoated graphite black a couple of months later.
Shot hornady classic match thru it at 1st as a accuracy round.
Had big time crown issues. Fixed that issue cut off about 5/8ths inch from the barrel. Read the cooper fouling 2 lands copper all the way to the muzzle , 2 stopped way short.
Resholudered and recrown it with a inside chamfer of the muzzle, spun oval head bolt in a electric drill and valve grinding compound.
Did a progressive up to 2000 grit polishing on the 2 stage trigger, clipped 1 coil off the spring.
Probably around 3.5 to 4pds.
Improved it alot.

Now it shoots ppu 196gr sp 1 moa now. 20 bucks a box local.
Posted up the project pics back then on gen forum when I was doing it all.
Some of you all probably seen that thread.
Hunted with it last year .
Choose not to drop a deer with it last fall.
Let em go, let em grow thing

Target was shot on 3x at 100yds

Over built is a good German thing. Ask Finn.
I'll take a Mauser over anything else.

My rifle isn't as elegant as all of your's having a military stepped barrel and a no name stock but, she will deliver the goods. That old 7x57mm FN barrel was new when Bob installed it and will put it's bullets into 1 MOA with several loads. I have taken deer through elk with it without ever a mishap and is the one I grab for serious events. One of these days, if it ever quits shooting good, I'll take it apart and see which arsenal and the date it was made.
