    New to the Mauser World

    Howdy everyone! I'm from Texas and just purchased a 1936 Mod 98 yesterday. Also have a Swedish Mauser, Argentine Mauser, a Remington 1903A3, and an Eddystone 1917. Haven't had a chance to shoot any of them just yet, but am interested in learning more of their great histories and gaining as much insight and info as I have time for. The Swedish and Argentine Mausers are in original state, the rest are sporterized. I have acquired a fair amount of mil-surp ammo in 8mm & .30-06, so just need to make the time to get these to the range and enjoy them!!

    Welcome aboard! Love the old Mauser's. So many different models from so many countries - great rifles to collect.

    Yes, Welcome! Mauser addiction is very difficult to overcome. Lol! They are great rifles with an awesome action. Like Buckshot has all ready said, there are so many different ones out there to enjoy.

    A few photos would be great when you get the chance... And welcome down a long road of discovery.. A book I may recommend that you can get real cheap is Mauser Military Rifles of the World By Ball.. Its 400 pages long with well over 1500 pictures.. Tons of info. Lots of Gun Porn.. ohhhh lots of Mauser porn
