I have this old mauser that my Dad bought at an estate sale in '79. He fired a magazine of rounds through it and then it has been stored for the last 30 years. Ammo is 7.65X53mm Argy. It's not too hard to find on the internet. But I've been told if you reload, you can used necked down .308. It's been taking up space in the gun cabinet, and I don't see myself using it. If one of you gunsmiths out there wants an original German made Mauser action to build on, this is the gun for you. Open to sale or trade offers.
