    have fun with your rifle. Millions of "Mausers" have had their value decreased. I have a few nice ones myself

    Have you swapped triggers yet? (think Timney) After the trigger swap, you'll want a Tubb spring and firing pin. (reduces lock time) Are you scoping the rifle?

    I went with the stronger Wolff spring instead. The rifle's barrel has been shortened a bit and recrowned (the Turkish troops were taught to use a cleaning rod from the muzzle, and the first couple inches of many of these barrels have damaged or non-existent rifling), the bolt has been turned down, the receiver has been drilled and tapped for scope mounts, and I have scoped it. The trigger has been worked on, and it's been more than adequate for slaying deer for the last several years. I cut down and reshaped the old Turk stock. It's a great hunting rifle, I'd just like to go through it again and make it a longer-distance shooter. When properly hand-loaded, the 8x57mm cartridge is capable of doing some surprising things.

    I guess somebody forgot to tell this Barrett, Cheytac, and most of the other current military bolt-action tactical sniper rifle manufacturers. And a Turkish Mauser is about as historically collectible as a Chevy Chevette. But thanks for your input.

    Left-handed STOCK for a Mauser. Jeez. You must be right-handed. Believe it or not, most stock-makers actually make left-handed stocks for right-handed bolt-action rifles. They just cost more.
