Mauser is a German arms manufacturer of a line of bolt-action rifles and semi-automatic pistols since the 1870s. Mauser designs were built for the German armed forces. Since the late 19th and early 20th centuries, military Mauser designs were also exported and licensed to a number of countries, as well as being a popular civilian firearm.
Mauser continued to make sporting and hunting rifles in the late 20th century. In 1995 the company became a subsidiary of Rheinmetall called Mauser-Werke Oberndorf Waffensysteme GmbH, before being acquired by Lüke & Ortmeier Group in 2000.
A division of the original company, Mauser Jagdwaffen GmbH, was split off and, in 2000, sold to Luke & Ortmeier Group. Mauser Jagdwaffen continues making bolt-action rifles as a subsidiary of SIG Sauer. The Mauser name has historically also been licensed by other companies on intermittent occasions.
