    New Mauser M18

    Another "budget" blued/synthetic rifle from a Euro manufacturer. They must hate stainless steel for some reason.

    Have emailed both Mauser and Sauer saying Stainless is preferable down here. Be interested to see if they are a press fit barrel or are threaded.

    Interesting, I don't think it will ever be a competitive option over here. Price alone and Blued will be the main ones. I can also see the detachable butt plate getting wrecked very quickly by kiwi hunters.
