Thread: Mauser 225

    Mauser 225

    Can anyone shed any light on the mauser 225 rifles ? Any info at all appreciated !

    I read about these not too long ago whilst researching the M66 slide action. I don't recall much, nor did I save the links, but as far as I gathered in the 80's Mauser may have used the Voere action as the M225, because they rescued or bought out Voere after becoming insolvent. My understanding is they just re-branded the Voere as a Mauser for a set period, which became known as the 99 in the US??? but it wasn't actually a Mauser designed or manufactured action.

    I think it was/may have been made on the basis of the rather unsuccesful M66 slide/telescopic action, which was a front runner in design for straight pull bolts. of couse, the 225 action is a traditional bolt action, and the rest of the rifle and stock, etc. looks like it's just a 66,,with the Voere action,,which by design looks a tad like the turn bolt version of the M66.

    do you have one?

    Hi Andy,

    ~All well thanks :-)

    Voere were/are very good actions, so I can only assume they are very good tbh. I've never handled one (225)I have to admit. Then, I think Mauser had Heym produce a line of actions too,,they were not all 'in house Mausers'.

    most important two things you want to know are: headspace and barrel condition..if both are ok, you can get it to both shoot and look beautiful. headspace can be corrected, but a shot out barrel is going to set you back a penny.

    buying 2nd hand is always a risk, but if the seller can get an RFD or decent gunsmith to check those two by using go-no go gauges and inspect the barrel for crown condition, pitting, and general 'wear', you can get quite far.

    Had a mauser mod 225 in 243 for a couple of year before selling it to my mate, the rifle was very well built with one of the nicest feeling bolt action i have ever felt (better than the sako and tikka that i own). it shot very well with any weight of bullet ( i tried everything for 58 vmax to 100sp) and i do truly miss it, the only problem i had was finding a set of mounts to suit and ended up buying set of apel.

    Not quite but still an added expense which did make my eyes water LOL.

    Can also add that when i said that i was selling it my mate jumped at the chance as he knew that the rifle was a quality bit of kit,

    PKL is correct the rifle is a voere model called a titan or titan 2

    Mauser at that point was well into "Badge" engineering. Most of their sporting rifle line up at the time was made by other manufacturers like Voere and if I recall correctly Heym.
