We've listed all the stuff we carry that Scott and Byron used on the May 18th-19th show when they built the Mauser rifle.

There are four basic sizes of Mauser actions. Two of these are rather uncommon and two of them are quite common.

Large-ring, military, Model '98 Mauser rifles utilize a cross bolt which serves as a seat for the receiver recoil lug as well as a means of reinforcing and strengthening the stock.

In order to obtain maximum accuracy in any rifle, the bolt locking lugs must sear evenly and completely in the receiver. In addition, by having all lugs bear evenly, the stresses placed on the bolt during firing are distributed uniformly no one lug is subjected to undue pressure.

Receiver Facing Mandrels

Brownells Receiver Facing Mandrels are designed to permit the precise squaring of the front, or face, of the forward receiver ring of a rifle action. If the face of the receiver ring is not absolutely square, it can place uneven pressure on the shank of the barrel and have a very negative effect upon potential accuracy.

Removing or installing a rifle barrel is a common gunsmithing task, yet it can sometimes be quite difficult. In addition to problems caused by the tight fit of the barrel threads in the receiver, the gunsmith may encounter problems directly related to his action wrench.

Bolt action rifle receivers are typically difficult to hold in a vise. The thin side rails surrounding the ejection port are easily bent and bowed from too much pressure and the front ring offers too little surface area for adequate purchase.
