    Its a commercial Mauser Anon. They are very nice and fancy hunting rifles. I wouldn't call them practical or good value. But they are very nice. Whether that makes them good or bad is up to you.

    Yes, but I know you don't want one of these. Just buy an original WW2 Mauser, which costs less btw, and be happy with it. These are safari rifles.
    Or if you are in the market for a safari rifle, then get a Rigby because they're literally the same gun but cost less and are cooler.

    You could buy two or three pre-war Model 70's in excellent condition for what that costs.

        Yes. Pre-1964 Model 70's have CRF and cut checkering, while post-1964 models don't

      If you've never seen an old Ford up close: SOME of its parts were produced using costly methods because cost-cutting was only so good at the time.
      Doesn't it have a whole cross-member cast out of iron? I was trying to remember a specific example but it's been years.
      Anyway, an old Ford might drive like shit and not last long, but it would still be pricey because of how much we learned to save money and time in manufacturing.
      Like, you won't buy one brand new for cheap compared to a modern car.

      Been seeing a lot of these on Simpson recently and have considered one in 9.3x62. Are they worth picking up?

        All swedish mausers generally are very good.

        i've had several in 6.5x55 for hunting.

        9.3x62 is quite a big cartridge tho, unsure how nice that one is to shoot.

    "Mauser" ist owned by Blaser now, notorious israelite company. The actions aren't made by them, but by Reimer Johannsen. Rifle ist probably fine If not for the 80% profit margin.

      no, they are both owned by Lücke&Ortmeyer, along with SIG Sauer, John Rigby & Co. and a whole bunch of other companies.

    I'd be more impressed if anyone started making new Parker-Hale style LE sporters. The last thing we need is yet another Mauser action.

      Wrong.

      The last thing we need is a some fricked up moron british rifle that has proprietary everything chambered in a weak ass metric one off calibre.

    why do cz discontinue all the guns with fancy stocks ?

    • 3 weeks ago

      Because Americans.
      Americans ruin everything. Most American gun owners have little concern for beauty, elegance, classic designs, and have objectively poor taste. Why bother with quality when you're just going to put it in the safe alongside all the other 20 slopguns churned out by the tens of thousands by 15$/hour workers in domestic manufacturing plants? Americans are utterly obsessed with squeezing every dollar of value possible out of the gun. They love their pressed checkering and plastic stocks and picatinny rail and no iron sights and spraypainted finishes and straight buttstocks which were invented during wartime to cut costs but stuck around because Americans didn't even notice. Most Americans don't know anything or care to know anything about rifle ergonomics, toe drop, or palm swells. They don't care about cheek weld or how well the rifle actually fits. They will instantly put the Chinese scope on every gun they buy because iron sights are le scary.
      Every foreign brand that catches on in America goes to shit, CZ is just the latest example. Selling out and cutting their unique and good product lines to sell more $2000 competition pistols to boomers. Totally fricking up the 600. The only good gun they make anymore is the 457 and that's probably going to get discontinued too.
      I am American btw.

        i wouldnt say that
        to be honest, most fancy wood stocked guns have always come off to me as cheap boomer rifles in some expensive caliber you cant find, they're just not fun guns usually
        i especially associate those rifles with butchered and bubba'd surplus rifles
        because of these things, i've mostly only been able to enjoy the look of military rifles
        of course, i still prefer wood furniture and older guns, but sporter rifles both new and old just really arent that great, and i've owned both and in the end sold most of the sport style rifles because i never liked them

    15k€ for a "modern" 98 with modern manufacturing shortcuts to increase margins, an ugly surface finish, an uninspired stock and an unthreaded barrel.
    Yawn, no thanks. I can litterally find sporterized 98s as well as various clones (M70s, Parker Hale, Midland, CZ, etc) for 500€ or less that look better than that shit and that are going to perform just as well for their intended purpose.
    Thanks bye!
