I paid 41000 kr for my M03 extreme in .308. 3400 pounds That was with the short barrel 52cm (costs more). Mauser mounts . You have no choice but to use mauser mounts. Topped with a S&B 3-12x50 FD scope.
A heavy rifle. Very well made. 100% pleased with mine.
Yes funny old thing when the pound recovers the price rarely drops! Makes me glad I got mine last year.
Thar how was your trip to NZ I managed to get out red hind stalking up north and got a couple plus got some nice pictures of some red hinds and some great stags.
Maxtich and SF. To be fair to the one who isn't, are you able to say who it is that you are referring to when you say 'rep' and 'distributor' in the context of rude?
I called Beechwood, today, who advised they are no longer 'Importers', the description used in the Shooting Times article on the Mauser 03 in the 23rd January, 2007 issue.
Or are you referring to Rupert Haynes of Open Season Ltd., as shown on http://www.mauserwaffen.de/index.php?id=england ? Cheers, Paul
