    I was curious if someone made a newly produced Mosin or Mauser and I see that Molot is importing their KO-91/30 now. Anyone have any experience with one or even seen one? I like the idea of having a brand new one so that I can treat it well (ie, no cosmoline) ko-91-30-right-side.jpg

    Plus a 308 version

    They make this too but it is not imported

    That new "Mosin" is cool, and the reason I've never bought a "vintage" Mosin is because I'm not into eaten up hunks o' junk (even for $99)... IMHO asking $899.00 when there are far better options for less is "sofa king we todd did". :rolleyes:

    yeah, the price is pretty high for it. I'm just disappointed with the 2 mauser's I got are in pretty bad shape and you dont really know until you get them and clean them up. its like they packed the barrel with sea water before dunking it in the cosmoline

    I saw a fairly nice SKS for $399.00 locally. What caught my eye was fixed 15-20 round factory mag.
    Personally, I'd rather have a Mauser than a Mosin. That Mauser action is the titz!

    know of any modern produced Mauser replicas (real firing guns, not just non-firing replicas)?

    I wish we could get some of those more rare molot guns over here. If I saw a hunter version of their VEPR in any caliber sitting on a shelf, I'd likely buy it at any price.

    It would seem that the closest you'll get are guns like the Remington 798. :(
    I wish they would make mausers now... With a thick receiver and in 8mm.

    Long before I built a Mauser from parts I'd buy the FN 'America' Model 70 clone, the best "Mauser" ever made.
    Thing is that giant Mauser claw extractor does degrade ultimate target rifle like accuracy. The Rem. safety breach system with it's tiny, bolt face extractor, and shorter lock time is inherently more 'accurate', as is the Savage tactical/target line . Which is not to say if your bitten by the Mauser bug buy one w/a factory warranty.

    well, never mind, I picked up a 1909 Argentine carbine Mauser (the engineer's model) instead today. It was in good enough shape and not a drop of cosmoline.

    Mauser still makes commercial 98's (called the M-98). However, they are very expensive (but oh, so beautiful).

    Dang those are pretty.
    I've really wanted a 1903.

    I'd long to have some old wall hanger rifles. I wouldn't shoot them, just for the art of them.
    Or something like these
