Mauser M24 pattern range rifle

Postby rjmt » Sun Apr 26, 2015 2:22 pm

just finished this one this week
started as a Mauser pattern M24/47 - $300 rifle
built during a peacetime economy with FN tooling and quality
this FN pattern Mauser has a pre war French Walnut stock
rebarreled after WW 2 at the Zastava Arsonal
Jim the Boltman modified the bolt for a bent bolt, scalloped for scope clearance
polished Military Mauser 2 stage trigger
my local gunsmith mounted a set of Leupold standard Mauser scope mounts
old classic Leupold M8-4X Gold Ring scope
used Leupold super high scope rings to clear the Military rear sight
Brass stacker Mauser ammo holder and cheek rest
Eastern European leather/canvas carbine sling

and it shoots 1.5 MOA with match ammo without floating the barrel
not bad for an 80 year old surplus rifle

may try to accurize it in the future, but I'm satisfied with this project for now

plan to take it to the range and shoot against my Mosin PEM sniper and my '42 M1 Garand next weekend
