    I believe that they are no longer producing firearms but I am not sure. Used to have one, wasn't very impressed with it. It was the only mauser action I have ever seen fail and the forearm cracked with very little shooting and kid glove handling. Pretty gun, but had some serious reliability and durability issues. It was stolen years ago. :mad:

    I have a Parker Hale 1200 Series Super Mauser Sporter 308 Norma Mag rifle. I have shot pronghorn, mule deer and elk with the rifle. It came from Birmingham, England and imported by Jana International Co. Denver Colo. I have not had any problems with it. I also had a 25-06 Parker-Hale rifle, I sold it ,big error..It would group five rounds under one inch at 100 yards. I have not seen one for sale since the mid 60s.
