My grandfather gave me a 1916 Mauser that has been in the family for quite some time. Story was that my greatgrandfather picked it up over in Europe. Anyway, its in great shape and I took it out for a test spin today. I was surprised how little the recoil was and it was very accurate as well. Ammo is a little expensive so it will be a, every once in a while, shooter.

Very nice, I have a '98 my father started back in the 60's. I know so many on the web don't care for the Sporterized Mausers and I get why it isn't worth doing one today. But your's IMO is very nicely done from a time when it was certainly for good reason to be done. I treasure mine as I'm sure you do yours.

Nice to see the rifles are still being used. I am not a fan of sporters but this one was done well.
