    They made the Charles Daly actions and the Remington 798 if you look on gun broker.

    Zastava. Serbian. The made the original Interarms Mark.X Mausers. Later imported by Charles Daly, then Remington as the 798. Now imported as the Zastava Z98. I had one in .243, but just recently sold it. It was heavier than I wanted in a .243, which is odd considering my #1 rifle is an Interarms Mark.X .30-06 and I have several other Interarms Mark.X rifles. The quality of the synthetic stock was not quite as nice as a Ruger or Remington or my T/C Venture. It shot very well, but got replaced by a Remington Model 7 in .243.

    I have also read they make the Mitchell mausers as well. Century arms will ship to your ffl of choice, so will buds guns. I have had my eye on one of their handguns. My father-in-law has one and it shots great.

    What specifically are you looking for? I usually check Great Northern once a week for powder, 22, and their gun racks. Let me know and I'll look (assuming you don't live in ANC).

    Looking for a .308 or other high power hunting clambering. Not really interested in a magnum.
    Thanks all for your responses.

    Gawd Mainer, who the h@ll can keep up with you? You are always on to something new.
    There is much to be said for the .243, but I am not the one to say it.
    BTW, that rifle is a real beauty.

    I got mine from K-VAR which was part of a left-hander group buy and had it sent to my pet FFL. Century is also carrying them too and I think J&G Sales had some too.

    This is what the .25-06 did with off-the-shelf, 100gr Remington junk. I don't know how I'm going to meet or beat that with handloads. I also a LH Mini-Mauser in .223 that I need to scope and sling. I'm still undecided on the scope, though the Nikon M-223 is on the short list.

    I have a 7x57 with a butter knife handle, double set trigger, deep mirror blue and full stock. It shoots 160 to 175 RN into an apple at 100 and kicks like a .338WM but it's a fine looking gun. Got it from a fellow named Karl in Nanilchik about 30 years ago in trade for some ammo and flying lessons...great trade.

    Yuuuuuup. Big Medicine. =)

    I've got an uncle in NH who is an antique Winchester collector/dealer/ I can ask him to keep an eye out for a nice on for you, when you're ready to buy. He can ship it right to my house if you want.

    What flavor of .405 are you looking at?

    You have to ask??? When one says "405" and "lever gun" in the same paragraph, one can ONLY be referring to the Winchester model of 1895. Anything else is pure heresy. =)

    I'd say.

    Iron Sights? Is it a Mauser, or Mannlicher?

    Mannlicher with hooded ramp and wide notch rear...can't use sights with scope on.
