San Antonio, Texas – In celebration of its 125th anniversary, MAUSER is pleased to introduce a limited-edition series of the original MAUSER 98 bolt-action rifle.
Built by MAUSER’s master gunsmiths in the style of classic safari rifles from times past, the MAUSER 98 125th Anniversary Rifles are a milestone of modern firearms technology. Only 25 of these masterpieces are available worldwide and each in the series is numbered.
“The MAUSER 98 action is regarded as the forefather of all modern bolt-action rifles. Built in the millions, copied by the thousands, but never matched,” said Jason Evans, CEO, Blaser Group. “We will have the first 125th anniversary rifle, marked #1 in the series, for sale at the upcoming SCI Convention in Nashville, and it is truly a work of art.”
The action, bolt handle ball, trigger guard, pistol grip cap and magazine base of these limited-edition rifles are color case hardened and, together with gold damascening, English ornaments and an exquisite wood grade 8 stock with a red recoil pad, give these masterpieces a unique and elegant look.
MAUSER 98 Magnum - .375 H&H / .416 Rigby
