A friend bought one of those in 6.5 Swede about 10 years ago. I believe his featured the full-length forestock, however. Many innovative features, including the safety that decompresses the...

I installed a 5071 on a 1427 Biathlon rifle I turned into a sporter a couple of years ago. It required only a small relief cut milled into the bottom of the receiver to clear a protruding pin, the...

Yes, for all the weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth from purists, the pre-C 52 sporters that were D&T'd are eminently more useful for 95% of shooters, even those with young eyes yet still insist...

Nice snag. The only thing rarer would be one marked "A". Pretty much a twin of mine, although, it sounds like your rifle would be in the earlier "A"s, and mine the tail end. Mine is Serial Number...

I tend to agree and had the same question regarding scope mounting. If one looks at the Speed book, there are several styles of very high rings that Mauser designed to allow someone to mount a scope...

That barrel appears to be a turned-down 350B barrel, something I could see Mauser doing to mount a scope, but anyone else would be able to do the same, and there are no visible caliber stampings.

That's getting up there, but, IF that rifle, in fact, came from pre-war Oberndorf that way, I would say I would pay that.

Agreed. That one checks all the boxes. Is the cartouche gone, or is the picture quality just poor? It's even possible there never was a cartouche,

The MM410B is the only true lightweight "sporter" .22 Mauser made using the "B" action. There is a 420 and others, some of which are exceedingly rare, but the 410 is also quite rare and the true...

Very desirable rifle, likely made in the late 30s, not 1945. Just the magazine, if marked "Mauser" is easily worth a few hundred dollars.

FYI, Winchester produced a few 52 prototypes in .22 WMR, so it's not impossible, and, like I said, I have been very close to making a 52 .17 HMR myself,...

Good luck. I assume you mean a .17 HM2, right? You'll need modification of the 52 action to get a .17 HMR to fit...although I have contemplated the same thing many times :p.

Everyone wants BR accuracy in a svelte sporter! You should expect 3/8” to 1/2” groups, with the occasional, tantalizing 1/4” group, from a very good sporter.
