    6.5 x 54

    Here is something that does not pop up too often. Less than 5000 ever made, a M98 short action and chambered in 6.5 x 54.

    Grab that Mauser!
    I had a Mannlicher in 6.5x54 and it was sweeeet. A good friend has it now.

    Nice one. Excellent rifle.

    Been pondering on an Oberndorf Mauser, 1940 made stutzen...7x57, working out getting it from Germany to Uk. Waiting for currency rate to improve somewhat!
    I have a 6.5x54MSch Takedown already, but also been looking at a MSch GK stutzen 7x57 1960's made. Hey ho, decisions.....

    Muir, sadly I don't own it, belongs to a good mate who also has a 6.5 x 57. And it is an annoyance to me that he finds these classics. He is also on to a Type A in 250/3000, pretty rare that one. I have only seen one other in the last 30 odd years down here. Btw , apparently Jon Speed has a new Mauser book coming out, devoted to the history of the Obendorf Factory.

    I can be jealous of your friend. I have plenty to go around!
    I had a friend who converted a Model 54 Winchester bolt action to 6.5x54. I guess it was offered special order back in the 30's? He acquired a barrel and bolt someplace. It shot so well! Hornady 160 RN dropped into a ragged hole at 100M whlke using a simple Weaver 4X on top. I applied a lot of pressure on him to get rid of that rifle. All I got was some brass and an extra set of dies he'd picked up with the Winchester parts "...for when you get your own.", he said. I had a 1903 Greek Mannlicher action but I ended up giving it away...~Muir

    deeango -
    That MS GK will not disappoint. I have had a GK rifle in .30-06 for a decade ( now being used by a friend our West ) and it shoots everything into tiny groups. Any MS in 7x57 is pretty hard to find in the USA. With a set of the factory swing off scope mounts, it would be a sweet thing for deer, or most big game.

    I've been looking at the MSch GK 7x57 for some time. It's in excellent condition but no swing/QD mounts.
    It has a fixed mount with Weaver scope, so that will have to be changed if I buy the rifle.

    I'm waiting for the currency rate to improve though. £/€ is pretty awful right now.
    It's also frustrating because I have the Euros on a prepaid Euro credit card, but the dealer doesn't/cannot take credit card payments.
    Bummer really, otherwise I'd have already bought it....!

    Walk the Euro cash card into a bank in Germany and get cash or cashier's check and pay the dealer as he prefers.
