    Mauser '98 7x57

    Mauser '98 custom, 7x57. I'm selling it for good this time. Had an accident with my car on the way back from a hunting trip this morning, and I need to free up $$, because the car is fucked. I'm waiting for a Timney featherweight trigger to arrive for it (should be here this week), which I'll throw in with the rifle.

    Comes with Hornady dies, 35 rounds of ammo, sling, gun case, quick detach scope rings and powder.

    It's up on Trademe, but I'll take down the auction if it's sold here.

    $2650.00....or make an offer, and I'll consider it.

    Thanks,
    AJ

    The front bead can be switched out manually in a matter of seconds, and you could replace it with any other NECG bead...like a fluro red one (perfect for the roar!)

    $1800 lowest I'll go. That's how much only the stock is worth...

    The rifle was originally built for a trip to Africa, but it never worked out. 7x57 (especially with a 1:9, 25" barrel) will stabilize the heaviest 7mm projectiles. And at approx 8 pounds of weight, the recoil of this rifle is very mild.

    If you want a rifle which kicks less than a .308, but delivers as much oomph as a 30-06, this is it.

    I'll ship the rifle anywhere in NZ. $1800 includes the price of freight.

    That will most likely be how I end up selling it. Unless someone on the forum would like it for the price advertised in this thread.

    That's Gary Keown's custom built rifle, and he's responsible for the project and also the beautiful stockwork. It still looks naked without any checkering though. I have met it in person and its a fine rifle.
    I doubt he got anything near that much when he sold it.

    Fraser, this is a different guy selling it on Trademe, not Frodo. Frodo probably sold it for $1800 and now this guy is trying to double his money.
