How are the bores on those ? 7mm is one dandy cartridge !
Bought several of the 1916 Small Rings the Israel Defense Forces re-barreled to 308 30 years ago. Well used stocks similar to yours. Biggest improvement was to install a Timney Small Ring Mauser trigger. That cut groups in half. Next step is going to be a receiver sight.
my Pop gave me a choice of one of the 'mexican' mausers or a 91 Moisin as a deer rifle when I was a kid.
I took the Mauser.
I figured I could carry it versus having to drag that Moisin around or drill the stock for some wheels.
Just curious Brian, how are those Mausers coming along?
I’ve been working on a Portuguese-Vergueiro Mauser. Had it rebarreled to 7x57 with NECG sights and then cerakoted. These actions are slick to operate, like butter. My holdup has been the stock. At 70 years of age, my hands don’t hold up like they used to. Putting it in a Euro style stock with raised side panels and steel grip cap and butt plate. It’s been a challenge.
I decided to play with the military stock so I could get it to the range quicker. Will get back to the Euro stock later.
