In one form or another, Mauser has been making rifles for almost 150 years. Mauser rifles have become synonymous with old world quality and craftsmanship, as well as strength and function. The new Mauser M18 is a departure from the famous rifles Mauser built their reputation on. The company has sought to create an inexpensive “good enough” rifle that the everyman can afford. They’ve achieved their goal. But in doing so, they’ve sacrificed much of what it meant to be a Mauser in the first place.

The M18 sports a 22″ cold hammer forged barrel. It’s a fairly light weight profile and keeps the weight of the rifle down for quick jaunts or long hunts. Unloaded and without an optic, the entire rifle weighs just 6.3lbs.

The bolt on the M18 is not the uber-machine that is the K98’s. It is a simpler three-lug design with a smaller extractor and dual ejectors. If you saw my recent review of the Sauer 100 Cherokee, it looks awfully similar.

Unlike that particular rifle, the M18’s bolt jolts open and drives back with a quickness. Unfortunately, you’ll need to drive the M18’s bolt forward pretty hard, as otherwise it stops just short of returning fully to battery. No matter what round I used, from Hornady’s 125gr Reduced recoil cartridge, to the (exceptional) Federal 185gr Juggernaut, there was always just a bit of a gap before the bolt closed, as above.

That gap also exist when the action is fully closed and in battery. There’s just not so much of it. If you work the bolt with your fingers, you won’t likely get the rifle to lock in place. A firm push with your palm or a fast and firm drive forward with the web of your firing hand thumb will do the trick.

At any price point, this trigger is a good one. There’s no grit, no starts and stops, and barely any take-up. It breaks crisp and clean with just a gentle pull. It’s not easily adjustable, but it needs no adjustment. The trigger of the M18 is absolutely ideal on a hunting rifle.

The synthetic buttstock’s recoil pad pulls off easily by depressing the two tabs at the base of the stock. The inside is filled with a removable foam insert, but space is intentionally left as a storage area. You can fit ear plugs, a bore snake, a small amount of lubricant, or a couple of carefully placed rounds in there.

The M18 comes scope-ready, but without sights. Don’t worry about odd European base sizes. Any of the Remington long action bases should fit.

Mauser M18 safety (image courtesy JWT for

The three-position knurled safety is well executed. As it should be, the position nearest the shooter locks the trigger and the bolt. The second position, just barely ahead of the first, locks just the trigger, and the third position, set with a longer gap away from the second, allows the bolt to move and releases the safety on the trigger entirely. This version snaps into each position with surety, but remains easy to get on and off with your firing hand thumb.

The stock is, even at this price point, a disappointment. It appears to be a similar weak synthetic stock to the early Remington SPS bolt action rifles. There’s no bedding material, and the recoil “lug” is simply a relatively thin metal bar inserted into the polymer fore-end.

Like the cheaper American offerings, the barrel is free floated in the stock, but the material is so weak that pressure on the stock at any angle bends the material and allows it to make contact with the barrel. I can hold the stock just in front of the recoil lug with the palm of my support hand and push on the barrel thumb, causing it to flex enough to make contact with the barrel.

This is a failing of many budget American guns as well. Folks shooting off a bag on the range rarely notice an issue, but in the field it can be a big one. Firm contact with the barrel will definitely alter the point of impact of your round, especially if the barrel was in a different position when you zeroed your rifle.

Just like my SPS (my first bolt action rifle) this can be remedied by glass and pillar bedding the stock. This is work any person who pays attention can do with minimal tools, and you’ll find that it makes a significant difference in the consistent performance of your rifle. With the Mauser M18, I would consider this mandatory work, at least if you are actually going to get out and hunt with the rifle.

Mauser M18 magazine (image courtesy JWT for

The polymer five-round double stack magazine never failed to fully insert, lock into place, or fall free when the magazine release was depressed. I never had any problems loading or ejecting with any round, as long as I forcefully cycled the bolt, and the gun loads rounds just fine.

You’ll need to be careful when single-loading rounds. Because of the dual feed ramps and the ledge right before entering the chamber, the case mouth tends to stick prior to the bullet entering the breach. That means fast loading a single round on an empty magazine will almost certainly fail.

The only way I was able to quickly load one round on an empty magazine was to point the muzzle at the ground and place the bullet in with a pincer grip on the base of the cartridge. If you are in a hurry, that’s a no-go.

The Mauser M18 performed admirably from the bench. The best scoring round was the Hornady 168gr BTHP Match, averaging a 3/4-inch five-round group over four-shot strings from the bench at 100 yards. The IMI 175gr SMK scored the worst, doubling the best round with 1 1/2-inch groups under the same conditions.

Every other round I fired scored somewhere between those two extremes. All rounds were fired from a Caldwell Stinger shooting rest using an Atibal Nomad optic at 12 power.

For some folks — and I’m one of them — the M18 will be overly harsh in recoil for the caliber and weight of the rifle. That’s because the stock has a fairly pronounced toe angle. The bottom of the stock is longer than the top, at least when compared to many other modern rifles.

That means that women or men with broad chests will end up getting the pointy end of the bottom of the stock, the “toe,” pressing into their chests during recoil. It’s not debilitating by any means, but it definitely diminishes the shooting experience.

Gun Review: Mauser M18 Rifle in .308 Winchester

There’s nothing “old world” about the fit and finish of the M18.  It’s a cheap plastic stock under a black gun. There were a few mild scratches and marks in the rifle, but I don’t know if this was the first time out for this trial and evaluation gun or not.

I own several Mauser rifles, and their variants. Their new M98’s are exceptional in every possible way, and I would highly recommend them to anyone. With the M18, Mauser has attempted to make a low budget rifle for the masses. So what I was hoping for when I got this gun for review was a cheap Mauser rifle. What I got instead was a cheap rifle, made by Mauser.

Ratings (out of five stars):

Style and Appearance * *
A flimsy plastic stock and matte black metal is not what a Mauser should be.

Customization *
There’s not much on the aftermarket for the gun, and there are few options available as well.

Reliability * * * *
As long as you use the factory magazine and give the bolt a push, there are no issues at all. It ran fine with any round I put through it. The difficulty of loading a single round in the chamber is frustrating.

Accuracy * * * * *
The M18 produced 3/4 inch with the best round and several under 1 MOA. I seriously doubt that holds up under field conditions with this stock, but off the bench, it’s a shooter.

Overall * * *
If this were any other brand of rifle, it would get three stars, so it gets three stars. It’s a decent gun. It’s inexpensive, reliable, and accurate. It’s not comfortable, and its materials and design will not stand the test of time. I understand the desire for any company to get a piece of the larger “people’s rifle” (their phrase, not mine) market, but Mauser should have no horse running in the race to the bottom.

  1. I have a Frankin’ Mauser 98k in 7.92x57mm, with an Arisaka Type 38 Barrel, ATI Stock Replacement and a Sarco 25-round Trench Magazine…

  2. You can find new Winchester Model 70’s for around that price. They have returned to the Pre-64 quality with a Mauser 98 action. Much better rifle for just a little more. The M18 is in the same class as the Ruger American and is almost twice the price.

  3. Psst… the lugs are in front… that thing at the back is just a cap. ‘Fully in battery’ is at the front. Come back after you’ve owned a couple more bolt actions.

  4. I think I’ll hold out for one that has enough in stock storage to hold a beer.

  5. It’s a disappointment, but mostly predictable for just about any company that is trying to mass-market their rifles into the US market.

    The lack of a real recoil lug is very disappointing, and will consign the action to low-recoil cartridges forever.

    As for your specific issue closing the bolt on a round into the chamber, it appears to me that the inside edge of the extractor needs to be beveled and polished up a bit.

  6. In the cheap ‘meat rifle’ category I’m sold on the Ruger American. I got mine plus a Redfield 3×9 scope and rings for less than what the price is for this Mauser alone. It’ll do the job I need done and if it drops off a cliff, no big deal.

  7. I bought a Tikka T3 CTR Stainless in .308 about this time last year, and it’s a beautiful piece of work. Yeah, it cost $250.00 more than this Mauser, but I don’t care.

    Mauser is going to have an up-hill slog marketing this against the Remington 7.


  8. From a Mercedes-Benz to a Toyota.

    I could have said Yugo but Zastava makes a Mauser 98 clone that is well regarded.

  9. This gun is just a symptom of how the “but I could get __# of cheap gun company x for the price of that gun” people are ruining the gun industry.

    A race to the bottom indeed… and way too many good gun manufacturers are getting dragged into it.

  10. First off thanks for the honest article. I would not buy this piece of junk if someone gave it to me. Maybe I missed it but you did not state if the trigger was adjustable and if it is what the trigger pull was at its lowest setting.

    Also I see it is a 3 lug bolt which means fast follow up shots would not be as quick as with a two lug bolt because the bolt lift will be much harder at least that has been my experience with every multi-lug bolt gun I ever handled.

    The bolt not going fully going into battery without using a sledge hammer blow is really a serious problem

    The junk injection molded stock makes the gun not as good a deal as people think because I have known way to many people that have taken their factory injection molded stocks and thrown them right into the trash and then getting a decent replacement stock drives up the price of gun to the point you would have been better off buying something of quality to begin with. I saw an injection molded stock actually bend when shaken lightly on a Thompson Contender gun and a Winchester M70 injection molded stock mushroom out when the middle screw was tightened even slightly which let the screw bear against the bolt which locked the bolt up tight. What trash these injection molded stocks are.

    The action is a push feed which can and probably will get you killed if you try and use it on dangerous game as I have seen way to many hunters short stroke their bolt gun under pressure and then jam it up hopelessly. I once as a kid in the 60’s jammed up my first push feed M70 too and had to pry to loaded rounds out of the action that had twisted themselves together. Boy that was a sweat using a long screwdriver to get them broke free. Now you know why I hate and loath push feed bolt guns.

    I have only ever found two types of bolt rifles worth hunting with, the original pre-64 Model 70 rifle which despite its crude workmanship was reliable and reasonably accurate. The best rifle of course is the original 98 Mauser Rifle. Even today you can find some real gems at some of the gun shows used. Some will have been sportsitized and some will be original factory guns. Sears sold a nice one that had an FN commercial action and an FN barrel and an American walnut stock and so did many other American companies that either imported them or used the 98 action to build them with their barrels and stocks. The list is very long.

    The Swedish Husqvarna Rifle was a good one although built on the 96 action not the 98.

    The original 98 Mauser was a controlled feed action preventing double feeding and a hopeless jam up.

    The 98 had a very safe gas escape system and I assure you it does work as I had a cartridge case fail once and I was not harmed.

    The 98 had a powerful ignition system with 1/2 inch striker travel it will work if the gun is frozen, dirty, full of water or over heated. Few modern made junk guns will have this kind of strong ignition system. Modern speed lock ignition systems are for weekend sand bag plinkers, not serious hunters or people who have never learned “follow through” after pulling the trigger.

    Many of the older 98 guns with original barrels had the old fashioned deep groove hand lapped rifling which lasts way longer before throat burn out than modern junk shallow grooved button rifled barrels or the completely junk hammer fudged type of rifling. I might add the original military barrels were actually hand lapped twice, once for uniformity to eliminated loose and tight spots in the barrel and a second time to eliminate any burs or roughness.

    The original 98 was designed so you could change out a broken extractor or firing pin without tools and in a matter of minutes. Most modern made junk guns take a trip to the gunsmith to get this accomplished.

    The Original 98 had double heat treated receivers that could take a real pounding from over loads.

    Yes make mine an original Mauser 98 because there is no other rifle even today that compares to it in reliability, safety and workmanship. And it brings with it the nostalgic history of famous big game hunters of long ago like W.D. M.Bell who slew the most mighty of dangerous game on the planet. They did not use junk guns because their lives depended on a rifle that would not fail them at the critical moment and in hostile environments of heat, dirt, dust, and rain or hostile tribes or brigands who would slit your throat as soon as look at you.

    • I’ve commented here at TTAG that every bolt gun since the 98 has been an exercise in removing safety features and simplifying machining operations, with the culmination in the Remington 700, a rifle where the bolt is made from three pieces of steel silver-soldered together and the receiver is naught but a round bar of 4140 steel that’s been drilled, broached and then milled out.

      The issue for the 98 is that there are just so many machining operations on a 98 receiver, the cost of production in today’s environment blows up through the roof. There are some outfits here and in Germany that make new Model 98 actions (bolt, receiver and trigger) that start at about $2500 and go up to $6K (a titanium action in magnum length). Most gun buyers just won’t for over that much for just an action.

      The other issue for gun buyers is that, unlike the Rem700 compatible receivers, usually the original 98K actions need some TLC from an old-fashioned gunsmith to make them into something the modern shooter wants today. eg, The bolt handle needs to be forged down. The keeper screw holes in the bottom metal need to be TIG’ed closed. The bolt might need to be faced off a bit, perhaps the firing pin hole needs to be bushed.

      If you’re going to use a scope, you need a “barn door” style safety (ie, like the ones on the Model 70’s or Ruger M77’s). Ed LaPour makes those for 98’s.

      Usually, I’ll put the receiver on a mandrel and face off the front of the receiver, so it is normal to the bolt axis. It usually only takes a couple thou to make this cut clean up all the way ’round. Then I’ll lap the lugs in on the bolt, before hanging a new barrel on it.

      The Mauser 98 has more safety features and better construction (IMO) than most of the bolt actions out there today. You’re right that it has a better gas venting system than just about anything else – and there’s a reason for this: Paul Mauser lost an eye due to a case failure in another gun design he was working on. This made him hyper-aware of gas leakage problems, and so you have the 98.

    • Mauser M18: $699 • .308 Win. • 6 lb. 10 oz. • 21.5-in. barrel Nathaniel Welch Outdoor Life
      Will miracles never cease? I didn’t think I’d love to see the day when I could purchase a new Mauser that didn’t require taking out a second mortgage. And yet here we are. It is actually made in Germany—and yet carries a very attainable $699 price tag.
      The price is a function of the rifle’s simplicity. But that simplicity is also what makes the gun so appealing. It checks all the boxes a good hunting rifle needs to and it avoids unnecessary embellishment.
      The rifle has a three-lug bolt that glides back and forth smoothly with a minimal wiggle and no binding. The slick action shined during the field drills—the test team was able to run the gun quickly from the shoulder while maintaining an accurate fire.
      The bolt handle has a generous round knob, and the 3.25-pound trigger is right in the sweet spot for a hunting rifle.
      A button recessed into the stock releases the box magazine, which loads easily and sits flush with the stock.
      The synthetic stock has a matte finish and soft, textured inserts on the fore-end and grip. It’s cut in the American Classic style and has an elegant air despite its economical construction.
      Mauser put a three-position safety on the rifle that keeps the bolt locked down when in the safe position.
      The rifle delivered excellent accuracy too, with a 5-shot-group average of .877 inch, including a .673-inch group with Federal’s 165-grain Nosler AccuBond. A performance like that in a rifle that handles well would be a good value in a $1,200 rifle. For a $699 gun, it’s outstanding.

  11. No doubt some of the stock quality comments are justified, yes I have handle the M18 a few times.

    what you cant ignore …

    Magazine, works as expected.

    Trigger, works a treat.

    Accuracy, show me another sub 1000 rifle that puts 5 shot consistently under MOA, Yeah nah not at this price point.

    MAUSER M18 is a Winner

  12. Anyone who expects Mauser 98 quality for the street price of $499 will probably be looking under his pillow each morning for a gift from the Tooth Fairy. I bought one recently, and I have a number of really top notch rifles costing well more than a grand, but this little rifle shoots as well as any of them. Sweet trigger, excellent accuracy, ugly but utilitarian, so what more can you expect…..If you object to pushing the bolt forward with force, maybe you should just get a semi auto and not worry about it. But, to each his own and opinions are varied. The most important one, however, with what makes a worthy rifle is your own.

  13. Seriously? There is a lot of innovative engineering in this barrel perfection and action design that these terrible articles completely fail to report on. Are you fools the least bit knowledgeable regarding Mauser’s decades of barrel making experience the fact that the action uses an innovative design where the bolt lugs lock into something other than the typical receiver design and… And using a K98 as a platform for comparison is just a logically fallacious bit of stupidity. Just wow.

  14. I’ve got a M18 308win from Santa in 2019 and I love it. Shoots great, it’s priced accordingly but that’s my choice. The stock is not as nice as my Tikkas but it is and will continue to be a good knock around rifle particularly on the quad bike. I get what the other people are saying as it’s not like the older 98s but some people don’t like change , but even if this Rifle was similar to the older guns my guess is they’d still complain …. Happy 😃 hunting and keep your powder dry, Big Trev from down under😉

  15. E-mailed Mauser to see if Sauer had crossover stocks, possibly from Sauer 100, that would replace cheap m-18 stock? E-mailed me back, said they wouldn’t fit! Made in the same factory, sure do look similar…

  16. Those comparing this to a ruger american or other sub $500 guns, read the fine print. MOA guaranteed for 3 shot groups… Mauser is guaranteeing this for 5 shot groups or they will fix it. That is not an easy feature. These guns locally are cheap, not as cheap as the savage axis (275) but we will see how it shoots. I just saw one on the shelf at my local shop for $410 and decided I had to have it. It is chambered in 6.5 PRC. Odd because they dont have that caliber listed on their website

  17. Sub standard review, has an odd tone! Feels like the author has a chipo on their shoulder. First article I’ve read here, and definately the last.

  18. Interesting Article. By and large I think you were overly scathing in my opinion. I had a play with one of these rifles in the weekend in .223 and I thought it was quite good.
    Firstly I should say, I don’t like cheap and nasty budget rifles. Remington 783, TC Compass etc.
    I would rate the Mauser almost on a Par with the Tikka T3X. Decent trigger, quality barrel, good accuracy but with an average composite stock.
    The Tikka probably has the edge in terms of build quality but it’s also a more mature systems with many versions available and it’s also dearer.
    I say this while owning many firearms including expensive HS Precision’s and Sako’s.

  19. I have one in 308Win. Sure enough, it’s inexpensive. Fussy about loads. The biggest and only drawback is factory ammo. It hates the stuff. However, load some 180gn Nosler BT and 45gns of 4895, and this sucker will drop a 1200lb cow at 800 yards. It’s sub moa on paper too. So it’s not grandpa’s. For younger people like myself, it’s a much-loved piece and for good reason. I love shooting it with light 150gn Hornady too.

  20. I you want a classic Mauser by the their super expensive M98, but if you want an affordable M98 get a Winchester M70, which is actually better as it has a coned breech and one can single load rounds into the chamber without difficulty or fear of breaking the extractor. For what you get, the M70 is the best rifle in the world, while anybody who buys a cheap push feed like the M18 or Ruger American must have rocks in their heads.

  21. I like the M18 and purchased 2, a 7 Rem Mag and a 300 Win Mag. Why? Both were under $400 and are moa rifles. I like the utilitarian look, lighter weight and 4 round flush magnum magazine. I also find the stock pretty ergonomic, which feels better shouldered than most other rifles I own! The triggers are as good as Timney triggers I install in my 700s. OK, I believe the dual ejector springs are making it difficult to close bolt chambering round. The strong springs require more pressure to slip extractor over case head. One has to slam the bolt home, or push forward with extra pressure when slow closing. I do not like this and contacted Mauser/Blaser. They tell me the springs and extractor need changing. I’m guessing to weaker springs? Bad run of extractors? One option they offered was to send me the parts, saying the swap was easy. I accepted and expect this will resolve stout chambering. To me the M18 is a hunting tool. Beauty Marks do not bother me. Neither light surface rust, as I plan on simply touching up with Rust-Oleum paint as required. I normally prefer stainless, but for the prices paid do not mind using my M18s in foul conditions/weather. I do care that the rifle goes bang when I squeeze the trigger and it hits what I aim at. Yes, I like the Mauser M18!

    • Chris V
      I just received my new M18 in 308.
      I also notice the harder than usual closing the bolt on this rifle other wise I love it.If one goes to hard you get a bolt bounce back and the bolt wont close. Its like the last 1/32 or 1/16 of a inch needs to be pushed in to get the bolt closed perfectly
      Maybe shooting it more will help it or really they should have made the lugs angled more where closing the bolt would help overcome the resistance of the dual ejectors or maybe removing one would help and the resistance going over the extractor.
      I would like to know the fix or can this be improved. Who to write too,phone number ect… to get the weaker springs Thanks

  22. update;
    I got new extractor springs from Mauser USA San Antonio but really its the twin ejectors that one might have a issue with. The last 97% of the bolt needs to be push in firmy and more precisely before the bolt turns down.If one shoulders the gun and cycles the bolt seems to be fine, But around the waist area and cycle one can cause it not to lock up correctly. They gave me some EXTRACTOR springs but don’t think its needed. I believe the dual extractors are the main issue with this gun. If one shoots a 91 Arg Mauser you wont care as they are cock on closing. Maybe one can file down both or get rid of the top ejector and see if it smoothens the action out otherwise I like the gun but haven’t shot it yet. Mauser said they will not change to a single ejector which I think would help, They don’t have weaken ejector spring to swap out. So otherwise I spray canned it Green and Brown and looks better than the Black stock. You wont find Made in Germany for 500$ anywhere else. I have not tried any other 3 lug short throw guns(Sako) So I cant compare the bolt issues but on a empty chamber youll think its the smoothest action in the world. trigger is AWESOME

  23. what a crap review i dont know how the reviewer got the stock to bend and touch the barrel because mine doesnt, as for the bolt being stiff to close i noticed it when i first bought it but after several hundred rounds i dont notice it anymore, ive shot 10 shot sub moa groups with it with zero feeding issues, it shoots as accuratly as any rifle ive used and imo it is great value for money, comparing it to a M98 that is way more expensive is like comparing a rolls royce to a dodge not everyone has 13k to spend on a M98 and for the price it does what it has to do and is a nice light hunting rifle, i have several Rugers and they arnt built any better, imo the reviewer was biased against the new rifle at the start and simply looked for things to fault it, its not an M98 its an M18 a peoples Mauser that everyone can afford

  24. Perry
    update. I shot my M18 308 and love the gun. For a Made in Germany sub MOA rifle for under 500$ is pretty good. The action is smooth and the lock up on the double ejectors get better overtime .At least for me.
    I spray canned mine 2 tone green and now they have the newer fluted green version with threaded barrel for a suppressor(not needed for me) If price is kept under 500 $ I would say get the Black M18s. I would get another one, USA model 70s I like and have one . But would get a KImber Hunter as its made in USA and dont want to buy a new Portugal made Wincherster m70.I dont want to reward Winchester for outsourcing the Model 70 But for a real Hunter that might beat the fuck out of his gun I say this M18 is fine. 60deg Bolt throw and lots of room for the scope. Get the right rings where the fwd base is step more in the rear to move the scope farther back to not hit the turret sooner. 2.11min into the vid see a M18 in action 400yrd wild hog;_ylt=Awr9NVWnDHdhbE0Amwj7w8QF;_ylu=c2VjA3NlYXJjaAR2dGlkAw–;_ylc=X1MDOTY3ODEzMDcEX3IDMgRhY3RuA2NsawRjc3JjcHZpZANBdjhPRlRFd0xqS2JxTHFKWUZJa1dBQV9NVE13TGdBQUFBRE0wMkFIBGZyA3lmcC10BGZyMgNzYS1ncARncHJpZANHLjc2Vm85X1E5dUNHZXJxSUxHaHdBBG5fcnNsdAM2BG5fc3VnZwMwBG9yaWdpbgN2aWRlby5zZWFyY2gueWFob28uY29tBHBvcwMwBHBxc3RyAwRwcXN0cmwDBHFzdHJsAzMxBHF1ZXJ5A21hdXNlciUyMG0xOCUyMG5ldyUyMHplYWxhbmQlMjAEdF9zdG1wAzE2MzUxOTIwMDM-?p=mauser+m18+new+zealand+&ei=UTF-8&fr2=p%3As%2Cv%3Av%2Cm%3Asa&fr=yfp-t#id=18&vid=df1f352b5fc157533f4881fa21719aa0&action=view

  25. having read at least 15 other reviews I can only assume your review was done without actually putting your hands on a M18. The first one I saw / handled was in .300 W magnum.and its aim point and grouping is stiil comfortably inside 1″ after 3 years of solid use.
