Is it fully legal to build a Mauser rifle? I see all the parts are available online.
Thanks Mark. I would definitely need to have a gunsmith connect a barrel since I have no tools and space for it. I might embark on an adventure building a Mauser and see how that turns out. I could use the one I just purchased through this forum as a template.The receiver is the "numbered/registered part" so just like with an AR15 you can/could assemble it yourself (though it isn't so easy (to do properly) vs. with an AR15).
Not to mention tools. Just doing the barrel install is a whole process.
I checked Google and anything pre 1898 is considered antique when purchasing a complete weapon. Purchasing a Mauser action without barrel would be great since barrel removal is such a pain. Thanks for the reply.You can purchase receivers and bolts through the mail as long as it doesn't have a barrel installed, and most places ( SARCO) will not ship the barrel at the same time/same shipment! It's perfectly legal to ship right to your door, no paperwork no back ground check, no nothing!
