    MAUSER Model 66

    Attachment 32326Attachment 32327

    This is a true german classical stalking rifle in 308 calibre it is in very near mint condition, it has a weaver rail fitted but you could swap for a different mount system.

    It has double set triggers which are very crisp.

    this is untouched and a rare calibre to be found in this mauser model.

    no scope included

    I would like 650 ovno

    regards chris

    smoothest action ever to walk the face of this planet right there. a real piece of german oberndorf mauser history.

    FWIW, these look amazing with EAW swingmounts and rail scopes!

    Lightest action to operate too, slick and easy. The Germans still love them, and Henneberger ( http://www.henneberger.de/mauser-66.html ) will make new barrels for them and some spares are still available from Gustav Jehn ( http://www.jehn.de/en/index.php ). There were several variants which I'm still trying to understand, early models had no bolt release catch, later models can be 66S models with set trigger releases, and I believe that very late models (66SM?) didn't have removable barrels. I've been looking for a thumbhole SP66 stock for mine for some time but no luck so far.

    PS. Nearly forgot, Recknagel will also sell you a single trigger assembly and trigger guard if you can't get on with the normal double set trigger http://www.recknagel.de/Joomla/image...8-2013-web.pdf (Catalogue 8, page 26) available through Alan Rhone here.

    I can help you have one custom built (thumbhole stock) if you're interested. Not cheap, but PM me if interested.
