For sale is my .308.
This is a commercial short action mauser action with swept back and checkered bolt handle. Cycles smooth as anything.
Comes with timney Featherweight deluxe trigger.
European style stock, front sight but no rear sight leaf. Hinged floor plate.
Sling not included.
The Mauser 98 action bears the inscription 'forest' as it's only mark. I have traced this to be either a very early Waffen Frankonia build by Steyr for WF, or an early Zastava, or a very early Sako frontrunner to the Forester, built by FN in Herstal.
It literally cloverleafs 150g RWS SP's factory ammo. The bore is in decent condition (there is a touch of pitting in two places in bottom of grooves, but nothing in the lands). This does not affect accuracy as it literally is a tack driver. The rifling is very proud and I suspect it has thousands of rounds left in it.
I have glass bedded the front of the action and it sports a nice floating barrel. The front swivel is secured by a rear locking nut. Crown is good
Bolt face does not have pitting or gas cutting.
Bluing is 8/10
it comes with a leupold 1 piece base and a leupold vx1 4-12x40 in great condition.
