This video will show you how to pillar bed a Mauser Receiver.
A description of the Brownells Action Wrenches.
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.
Insert short description.
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.
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
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
It’s a new year and time to get started on a new project, and what could be better than putting together a new rifle™
Before getting started I’d like to thank those of you who took the time to e-mail us with your comments and suggestions. It appears that I am not the only one with a Mauser project on his hands.
