I have to agree. It is definitely a very strong action. I am not sure how it holds up with the newer type actions when it comes to accuracy. It's release(for lack of a better word) time must be slower than the newer actions. What is your feeling.In "My" opinion the 98 action was the best ever made for obveous reasons,even the step-down barrel on the Mauser was pure genius engineering.
I've seen blueprinted Mauser's that would go an par with the best rifles made,that would go for locking time also from trigger to primer.I have to agree. It is definitely a very strong action. I am not sure how it holds up with the newer type actions when it comes to accuracy. It's release(for lack of a better word) time must be slower than the newer actions. What is your feeling.

Don't count on me,you being a Gunman must find the last piece,of what seems to be an endless puzzle.Enjoy the World of Guns.Thanks JoeLee.
I will study this but I am suspecting I may have a clone. I can also be wrong.
My rifle was assembled by a company called Musgrave. I have tried to research them to find out if they copied the Mauser action or if they reused old Mauser actions, but to no avail.
It seems you are very knowledgable regarding these actions. If I post a photo of my action will you have a look at it and tell me what you think it could be.
i got one too. took it out over the weekend with my enfield. me and my buddy had a coolness contest. best shot wins a milkshake...i lost and its MY gun:34:Well, I have a 8MM Mauser Yugo 24/47 that I've used to blast rabbits and squirrels. Does that count? :scool:
I love it, by the way and wouldn't hestitate to use it for larger game, if I ever got around to doing that.
