    Its an interesting design. The bolt body/lugs revolve around a center which holds the case,extractors and firing pin

    I have a couple of Gevarm rifles, an E1 rough takedown but the other E3 is in pretty good shape and is a straight shooter.

    Occasionally itíll have FTE but is otherwise reliable. Pulled it out the other day and forgot it fires from the open bolt which perplexed me for some time.

    This little semi has sent many a possum to the marsupial afterlife.

    I wonder if anyone has any of the rare 25 round mags that didnít end up in the crusher.

    Well if you call an extra 12 mm silly then OK. Its exactly the same length as my weihrauch rear locking rimfire.

    The lock time with the open bolt firing takes some getting used to - mine has a shorter barrel and suppressor is weird to fire using subs, it seems as if the bolt slamming forwards is knocking the bullet out of the rifle - ‘clunk’ then ‘whump’ when bullet hits.

    One negative with that design Is using a scope sight - too easy for point of impact to change depending on pressure on fore-end.

    Far better piece of wood on yours, nice. Yes I prefer a full sized rimfire as well. I sold my anschutz because it was to small and to light.

    Measured mine for interest as well: 52mm bolt travel. For comparison, Ruger 77/22 47mm, Brno Mod 1 35mm.

    Can't say I'd ever noticed the difference when shooting.

    Full disclosure: Mine's a Voere 2000 and not a Mauser 201. But it's 99% the same rifle.

    From memory the Mauser 201 and Voere 2000 were both chambered in 22 WMR as well as 22 LR which may explain the longer bolt throw length.

    Can I? Yes, easily. Do I? Not generally, because this particular rifle gets used for position shooting practice with a slow rate of fire.

    I haven't handled the magnum version, but photos show the same action length. Bolt travel on my .22lr is 12mm after the point the ejector blade passes the bolt face, which would be enough extra to accommodate the magnum case.

    What you're not accounting for is that the front of the magazine is still just behind the breech face and actually ahead of the locking lug abutments. Which makes it about the same bolt throw as any other rimfire magnum action.
