I'm taking my one & only Mauser in 9x57 out to Wyoming this fall for elk season. It'll be my primary gun, but I do plan on having my little Remington .358 for back up.

Don't have as many Mausers as i used to. In the time I have left to hunt, I plan to use just my favorites and I've been getting rid of what my family isn't interested in. I've owned many over the years and have seldom been displeased with them.

Robtattoo, I was shooting my 9X57 this morning before it got too hot. I decided to make it into a dedicated cast bullet rifle and am zeroing in on my hunting load. Looks as though it will be a 250 gr FP with powder coating at a little over 2000 fps. Don't have elk in Alabama, but I think it'll work on our whitetails! Unfortunately, mine is not a fine old original like yours. It has a Shilen .358" barrel on a FN action. It worked well with a Hornady 250 RN on this buck:

I have far fewer than szihn and I mostly hunt M70's and Kimbers. Even so, I still like my Mausers. My gunsmith thinks the .308 Norma is particularly well made.

1894 Swede Carbine in 6.5x55, new sporter stock, modified for scope use, cock on opening Dayton Traister conversion and trigger. Burris 2-7x35mm scope,
98K Mauser sporterized, rebarreled to .243 Winchester. Carved wood and a plastic stock as well. B&L Scope.
98 Mauser sporter, 7x61 S&H Super, 26 in Medium heavy barrel. The action has the cutout for the thumb and the safety on the left side. ction has commerccial markings though. 6-18x40 Redfield.
FN 98K 1940 vintage. Sporterized and rebarreled to .35 Whelen, wood and plastic stocks, Gentry 3-positon safety, removeable peep and iron sights as well as a 2-7 Leupy.
FN commercial 98 Mauser, factory .308 Norma Mag, side safety, by Interarms. Scope is a 3-9x40 Leupold with LR dots.
I would like a LW .270 next.

I love Mausers! I have a VZ-24, a G33/40, a short ring Mexican Mauser which are all still in the project stage. The one pictured is a 1909 Argentine 98, in .270 Win., built by Jim Coffin in Albany, OR. It sports a 24" Krieger barrel, Gentry 3 position safety, Biesen one piece bottom metal, butt plate and grip cap, rust blue and oil rubbed stock. Jim did the stockwork. He was going to build two others, but sadly came down with terminal cancer and passed away.

I used the rifle shortly after I got it to take a nice muley in Colorado. After Jim passed away, I couldn't bring myself to take it out in the mountains and give it "character" so it took up residence in my safe. Jim always said, "Life is too short to hunt with an ugly gun." So this year I planned to dust it off on an Antelope in Wyoming. Unfortunately, I did not draw this year, so it looks like I'll have to wait until next season.

Here area few pictures...if I can get them to load. Good to see other Mauser fans enjoying their rifles too!

This “campfire special” has been in the works for a long, long time. At least 9 years. Can’t wait to take her out into the woods.

LR98 chambered you 6.5x55 Swede. Haven’t even gotten a 3-shot group on paper yet.

Boyd’s JRS Classic in upgraded French walnut purchased semi-inlet for my first-ever custom along with the “meh” anodized aluminum bottom metal from Brownells with the pronghorn molded into it. MJBGALT sold me the action a long time ago, Boatboy sold me the 1.5-6x Sightron, JKob sold me the Wisner safety, and I can’t remember who sold me the Apex Rifle Company take-off tube.

The real mastery, which will come as no surprise to those who’ve been here long enough to remember him, was the stock work by Karnis who put it on a serious diet, refined the shape w/ grip scallops, added the ebony end cap and red decelerator. Grasshopper, another long time contributor here, referred me to the gent in Central Michigan who did an outstanding job on the the wrap-around checkering.

Bold trigger, jeweled bolt by Skip Baldwin, and parkerizing done by a client of mine.

Hoping to get a super mild load of IMR-4895 under a 123 GR SST or AM shooting lights out for deer this fall.

There just is nothing better than being hypnotized by a gorgeous stock in my lap as I breathe in the fall air waiting for da turdy point buck to show himself!


Don't you ever wonder why
In spite of all that's wrong here
There's still so much that goes so right
And beauty abounds?

The thunder rolls and the baby sighs
And the rain comes down
Don't you wanta thank someone for this?

Good luck in the draw & hunt!

Nice pics, and nice rifles!

I will be pulling out my Mauser from the safe to hunt this season...but which one?

The Mauser 1943 K98K...The BRNO Czech 98/22, in original military stock, or the BRNO Yugo VZ-24, in original stock, but scout scoped?
