Saw one of these for sale last week and it is in really good shape. It's in .30/06, has a 4x scope on it and looks very nice overall. The stock has a couple of small dings in it, but nothing to worry about.
The price is $275 and was just wondering if anyone knows anything about these Mausers. I know they're commercial and were imported back in the late 70's and early 80's. Any good?
Appreciate the help in advance!

Calvin, I have no idea as to the worth of these. You can pick up military mausers for about the same price or less at gun shows or through a c&r dealer. What condition is it? Price is probably not all that bad, maybe a little on the high side, then again maybe not.

If you get it post some pics as IO was not aware of Interarms producing mausers.

According to DeHaas' book "Bolt Action Rifles" (Copyright 1971), Interarms in 1969 began importing the Mark X Mauser made in Yugoslavia by Zavodi Crvena Zastava. A basic M98 action, it has some modern elements that Interarms used as a reason to term it a "Custom Action". There were three action lengths, for three different 'families' of cartridges - long for the belted magnums, medium for the .30-06 class and short for the .243/.308 class.
There were some fit&finish issues, mostly just corner-cutting and inattention to detail. They are considered safe, solid actions.
That price may be a bit high, but then any good rifle is priced about that level in a gun/pawnshop - not bad compared to a higher class Rem 700 or Winny 70.
Still, you could find a good newer Savage for the same price range.
