RE: Are Turkish Mausers still available

I saw an ad like that, but when I called the company they had sold out. Apparently they sell those ads months in advance.

RE: 8mm Mauser load

I handload for the 8mm Mauser a lot and I REALLY like the 220-grain Nosler Ballastic Tips. The grain size you use depends on the individual rifle. You need to tinker a bit and find which kind of food...

RE: What would you like to see on outdoor TV shows?

I' d like to see my favorite form of hunting, going after feral hogs with a handgun. It' s the only kind of Texas hunting I can think of where the game bites back. Give one of those TV types a .44...

RE: deer: 270 vs 7mm-08 vs 308

Which caliber, .270 .308 or 7mm-08? I have one answer. YES.

I' m a 7mm fan so I guess I would say the 7mm=08, although I would prefer the 7x57 Mauser in a nice light handy Model 93 carbine.

Are Turkish Mausers still available

I have had my C&R license for about a year and haven' t bought anything with it. I was thinking about buying one of those $40 Turkish Mausers but couldn' t find them anywhere. Does anyone know of a...

RE: Mausers

All of which goes to my earlier point. I don' t think it can be questioned that many rifles, like the Springfield, the Winchester 70, the Jap Arisaka, the Enfield Model 1917 (and by extension, the...

RE: Mausers

There is no such thing as a small ring Model 98. The Mexican Mausers, which are variants of the Model 98, have small rings, but they aren' t truly Mausers, any more than the Springfield is a Mauser....

RE: 7mm 08

I wasn' t knocking the 7mm-08. It' s a good round, since it is virtually a ballastic clone of the 7x57.

It' s more popular in the US because it has been promoted more since its development. I'...

RE: 7mm 08

Ruger offers their No. 1 single shot and also the Model 77 bolt action in 7x57. And I never have understood the big deal about short action rifles.

RE: Help:What semi-auto carbine to get??

I' d rethink it. It is hard to beat an SKS for a knockaround semi-auto. They are accurate, dependable and cheap. And that 7.62X39 round is plenty powerful. Using steel core Chicom surplus, I' ve shot...

RE: Convince me there is a real NEED for a semi

If you are talking strictly as a hunting rifle, there is no real need for a semi. If you are talking about a rifle that can double as a self-defense weapon, the dynamics change.

RE: Good 22. rifles

As as been mentioned, I don' t know why you wouldn' t want a Ruger 10-22... best .22 LR for the money. But I have a Marlin Model 90 that has been a good rifle... accurate and never jammed yet. I keep...

RE: 7mm 08

I think it' s a solution to a problem that didn' t exist. Anything the 7mm-08 can do, the 101 year old 7mm Mauser can do as well or better.

Calibers for a lever action deer rifle: .35 Rem, .30-.30, .444, .450, .45-70, .308, yes, any of the above would do fine, although for most deer I have seen the .450 Ruger and .45-70 might be a bit...

RE: Deer rifle around $300

Depends on several factors.

Where does he hunt? If he hunts in a wooded area, you can buy a brand new Winchester or Marlin 30-30 for less than $300. And we all know how many deer have been...

RE: Mausers

Although I am a big fan of the small ring Mausers, particulary the Model 93, I would reccomend sticking with a large ring for a custom rifle. The exact action you pick depends on the caliber you plan...

Probably from $400 to $600 if it belonged to anyone else. But you already said you wouldn' t sell it. So that makes it priceless.
