    I'm planning to buy a Mauser M12(The extreme model) but I want to get some more info before the purchase.It seems a great rifle, one of the best ever made-AND ITS A MAUSER!!!!!!:D
    So...anyone who has shot it or owns it, please, leave some comments.

    Thank in advance for the response,

    Regards

    Looks like a model 98 with a new gas shield and a Winchester model 70 safety. Nothing super radical. Should be a solid rifle, just like any other Mauser. Don't know if the prices are justified. Maybe I'm missing something.

    Really? Take a look at the video showing the features. It has nothing in common with a 98 Mauser other than the action diameter.

    Nope. You're right. When I first read the post and did a google search I couldn't view any video of the rifle, and the written material was not as detailed about the features. It's more like a Sako with the 60 degree lift. But with dual ejectors. I do like the idea of the no tool bolt disassembly as well.

    Thanks for making me take a second look when my connectivity was better.

    Mauser makes a solid rifle. I would expect it to be good. If the features strike you as worth it then I guess the price could be justified.

    could just get a winchester 70 classic... the m12 is a pretty good copy of that one.

    I have a 98, but I have always wanted a commercial Mauser

    Winchester 70 is a great rifle, but I would rather a brand new Mauser M12

    I wouldn't trade a Mauser model 12 for two Winchester model 70s.

    Right now I'm wavering between a Mauser model 12 and a Sako.

    Nothing wrong with Remchesters - but there are better guns on the market, never fool yourself about that.

    So...as far as I can understand, in your opinion the 70 is better than a M12?

    I mentioned that I would not trade a M12 for two model 70's.

    Seems clear enough to me.

    Sorry mate, I read "would" instead of "wouldn't".Now it makes sense.
