Hands on with the Mauser M18

With an MSRP of $699 (street closer to $600 I bet) the German-made retro modern Mauser is sure to be a hit. Slinging lead through the rifle, the action was smooth, the stock was comfortable and it shot where I aimed. Das Bueno. The list of features is on par with others in the market:

– Rugged Synthetic Stock
– Soft Inlay Grip
– 3 Position Safety Catch
– 5 Round Magazine
– Adjustable Trigger
– Steel Receiver
– Cold Hammer Forged Barrel

One thing missing from the list of features: the Mauser’s superb trigger. You can count on us reviewing the M18 ASAP.

          A pity.. Be nice to see more demand for 8 mm driving down the price of food for my postal marked k98.

    I want a Masuer in 9.3x62mm. .300 WinMag is fine, but the original African Bruiser Masuer Cartridge should be offered in a Masuer rifle today.
