Of all the many rifles made with a Mauser K98 action, the Mark X (imported by Interarms out of Yugoslavia) is one of the most interesting.
Available in almost any caliber, the Mark X (which, unhappily, is no longer manufactured) has a reputation for outstanding reliability and quality"”which, unfortunately, is generally reflected in its price.
Here is one, for example, which is for sale at Richard The Gunsmith"™s store, with "śMannlicher style and quality"ť written all over it:
Okay, this one makes me drool. It"™s chambered in .308 Win, has a lovely 20"ť barrel (almost a carbine length, in other words), and has the trademark Mannlicher "śbutterknife"ť bolt and full-length stock.
Did you notice the double "śset"ť trigger? (Draw the back trigger to "śset"ť the front, which will then release with only a 12oz. trigger pull.)
Included in the $1,100 price is a Leupold Vari-X III 1.75-6x32 scope (which alone costs well over $400 new).
