We just had our local Annual Mauser Match down here between Homer and Anchor Point (May 17) and it was a hoot.
It was open to any military issue bolt action, with issue sights.
We had Swiss straight pulls, Swede Mausers, some M/98s variants in 8mm, a French MAS 36 and a 1895 Chilean Mauser .
It was won by an m/38 Swede Mauser. Closely followed by the 1895 Mauser in 7x57.
Are there any similar type matches coming up around South Central AK??
