    30 06 R.Famage m98 info

    hey guys,
    Just looking at a old Mauser 98 in 30 06, from what i can tell its an ex military refurb from South America. any info would be appreciated. Here is a link to the gun with all the info. I'm not concerned about pricing, more are they OK.

    These are Mausers in the format of the 1924, like the Yugo 24/47. They were made for Columbia by DWM, Steyr and Brno. If you can take a good photo of the crest, it will tell you the maker and sometimes even the factory.

    Colombia rebored and rechambered these themselves from 7x57mm to .30-06, or rebarreled them with .30-06 barrels from FN. They have been fed a diet of USGI NATO ammunition, so have fun with them. You may be shocked at how accurate they are, once you get used to the sights.

    Thanks for that info, the dealer sold it, but he has a FN Mauser in 3006 he's putting up for sale, similar condition he said. Are ex mil FN mausers a good thing?

    All FN Mauser rifles, if "as made" will be good. A club member had one of these 30-06 carbines about thirty plus years ago. Short barrels +full power military 30-06 M2 ball ammunition = light up the sky! Hoping you have good ear protection!
