This is the story of a small segment of production from the plant that brought the world the military Mauser fighting arm known as the Model 1898. While stock, sights, caliber and other modifications transformed it into a sporting rifle, the basic action remained unchanged. In turn, this brought to the hunting field an arm of unsurpassed serviceability.
