M98 125 MAIN

In celebration of its 125th anniversary, Mauser has introduced a limited-edition series of the original Mauser 98 bolt-action rifle. Built by Mauser’s master gunsmiths in the style of classic safari rifles from times past, only 25 of the 125th Anniversary models are available worldwide, and each in the series is numbered.

“The MAUSER 98 action is regarded as the forefather of all modern bolt-action rifles. Built in the millions, copied by the thousands, but never matched,” said Jason Evans, CEO of Blaser Group. “We will have the first 125th anniversary rifle, marked #1 in the series, for sale at the upcoming SCI Convention in Nashville, and it is truly a work of art.”
