WHO ACTUALLY knows who made all of these older Mauser 98 action Target rifles ? Military Surplus rifles confiscated after WW11 and converted for civilian use probably in their thousands. Bisley certainly played their part back in the day.
This comes with a traditional extra-long heavy barrel set into an equally heavy set Walnut stock. Generally always chambered in 7.62 Nato as oppose .308. Basically produced for range / target shooting with military surplus ammunition than the more commercial hunting .308.
I can’t remember which way around but one cartridge has a very slightly steeper angle on the shoulder. Both chamber and shoot perfectly acceptably in either calibre. However, one requires slight pressure to close the bolt the first time. Enough to re set this angle then they are fire formed to the chamber from there on.
Still a great following for these vintage style examples from people who want that little extra challenge and skill level required over and above using more modern rifles that just about shoot themselves.
At this price it is a ‘fun’ tool to see just how good you and it can still be!
