    Mauser MO3 - Front thread sleeve

    Hi,

    Could anyone please guide me as to where i could get a sleeve for the threads on the barrel as i lost mine. its a 1/2 UNF thread size.

    I called Open season and as of last this monday gone they are no longer distributors of Blaser and Mauser. Does anyone know who are the new distributors.

    Thanks

    Hoshang

    Try Robert Sajitz at Blaser Sporting Ltd., who took over Mauser/Blaser distribution in the UK on 01-07-2013.

    rs@blaser-sporting.com or 0207 622 2116

    Try UK Custom Shop 01905 797060 they do Wildcat mods in 1/2 inch unf . My lad got a belting brand new Mauser action rifle off them on saturday threaded and sleeve provided on request.

    I take it that what you have lost is your thread protector? You don't need to go to the importer 30-06 for a replacement any good gunsmith should be able to supply you with a suitable replacement in the thread size of your choice. They have even been advertised on this site and ebay in the past, just use the search facility to find them.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    OK, but you'll grant that obtaining a thread protector which matches the diameter, finish and thread length of any given barrel is not so easy, nor necessarily as quick or cheap (though given the price of an 03 scope mount, who knows?) as obtaining an original factory protector from Mauser.

    The OP may only be looking for "something" to protect his muzzle thread -in which case I'd agree that "any good gunsmith" (and how many of these are there, really?) could supply one, but personally I'd be looking for a match to the original.

    He says that the original was 1/2" UNF, somehow to me that doesn't sound like a thread size that Mauser would use, wouldn't it be a metric size?

    That bit surprised me too. But I didn't see why the OP would want to contact Mauser at all if it wasn't a factory protector.

    The original M03 leaflet I acquired from Beechwood whom were the original importers makes no mention of threaded muzzles so back then when first introduced any muzzle threads would have been done here in the UK.

    Good news regarding the change of distributor when I asked for something a little specialised they couldn't even be bothered to quote for it!!
