We are leaving now for an elk hunt, with my Mauser in 300H&H and my wife's Mauser in 30-06.

Mongrel,
That is a stock I made myself from Oregon black walnut, the finish is thinned epoxy applied to a heated stock blank... helps the epoxy soak in. Then it is wet sanded and a few coats of oil applied on top.
Makes for a traditional yet weatherproof finish. The metal on that rifle is graphite black Ceracote...

Did you have the action reheat treated or hardened on 1909 or ran it as is? Nice rifle by the way.

1911A1,
No I didn't have it heat treated, the 1909 are known for being soft, yet thousands are out there and still working fine. I have another 1909 in 338 mag and have had no setback in either.
Many trusted experts claim no need to re-heat treat, others claim it as cheap insurance, so far so good for me.

Thanks for the info. I'm pretty sure mine has not been re heat treated.

I started reading this post and it started me thinking what game I have shot that wasn't done with a Mauser! Other than a Win Mod 94 30-30 for my first deer in 1957 and a couple deer and one antelope with my dad's 03-A3 Springfield 30-06 I have used nothing but Mausers. Most were sporterized military Mausers and the rest were Commercial FN Sears, Montgomery Ward and others in 30-06. In my later years, I still shoot all Mausers, but in a lot of different calibers. The last Elk I shot last year, was shot with a 30-06 on an Argentine action!
I have almost quit hunting, but when I do go out for Antelope or deer, I use a Mauser (Sears FN) chambered in 257 Ack. Improved.
My two boys also use Mausers and one Ruger 77.
I guess there is no reason to change now!
A good friend jokingly named me Kennymauser!

I'd appreciate anything anyone could tell me about it or any resources that could point me in the right direction.

Judging from the four-digit serial number in connection with the letter in addition to the serial number the gun isn't one of the models manufactured later during WWII. The four-digit serial number in connection with a letter was used to confuse the allies about the total number of K98k made under the Versaille treaty. A 100,000 man army doesn't need hundreds of thousands of rifles and so the Nazis avoided unpleasent questions by the inspectors about a number of guns not needed for a small army.
