I used my sporterized WW II era german mauser in 30-06 on my cow elk hunt this past fall. I call it a family heirloom, just not from my family. I own a safe full of more modern rifles but none with more soul than this one. Imagine my response when my guide wanted me to use his plastic stocked rifle with a suppressor so the elk wouldn’t spook and we could shoot two out of the same heard! A 180 grain partition did the job, opened up great at modest ought six velocity and was under the hide on the har side.[Linked Image]

That is an absolute corker of a rifle!

Can we see some more photos and a story please?

Have to dig up some photos of my 1913 H&H 375 Belted Mag on a Magnum Mauser action.

Yes. I will, bought this rifle from Mule Deer not long ago. I always wanted a G33/40 rifle, got lucky, saw it a little after he posted it in classifieds. He said the maker unknown, possibly German made. It fits me perfectly, thankful to own it, ain’t never selling it.

It is a stand-out isn't it.


These are my opinions, feel free to disagree.

A little checking on that 257 Would really dress it up. And, it will kill better too!

Mexican 1910 with a Douglas XX .308 barrel installed by Dick Williams a while back, new bolt handle, low power Leupold in a well used NOS glass stock. Very accurate with 150 gr. Nosler Ballistic Tips.

Currently wringing out a VZ24 with a Brownells 6.5 x 55 barrel, new bolt handle, 3.5 x 10 Leupold, in a Bell and Carlson stock. Trying to finesse some loads with IMR 4451 and Hornady and Barnes monolithic gr bullets. Just had it matt finished blued and it doesn't seem to be grouping as well as it did before.
