I have also heard that they contracted with FN to manufacture new Mausers in the same caliber which is what I believe this rifle is because of the IDF crest on the receiver.
That is the most ironic thing I have ever heard.

If you search the forums you'll find I have posted a couple of times about Scout mounts by a couple of companies...

The quality of fit and finish of these early 20'th century Mausers is quite impressive. These old military issue Mausers were made to a higher standard than most modern sporting rifles. Those of us who collect C&Rs really appreciate these firearms for what they are, in some cases works of art.
Even the later early WWII Mausers exhibit an attention to detail that will never be matched again.

to string1946...nice collection. BWT I am impressed with what I can see of your shop area. Clean, well lighted and nice view from the window.

Others that have posted photos are also very nice.

When a person rebuilds and restores an old military rifle, it makes it hard to part with it if that time ever comes.

Sweet! So far I've got 3 Mosins. 2 - 91/30's and a Romanian M44. Been in some dire straights, but that's over. More C&R's to come soon.

Thank you for your kind words but trust me its not always so neat. That bench is in my basement and is only used for gun related jobs. I have another in the garage that I use for real work. Here's a better shot. I spend a lot of my free time at that bench.

Gun confiscation will not happen in my lifetime.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." C.S. Lewis
