Can any of you mauser experts out there help me out? Does the Mark X in a short action in (this case it's a 243) have a magazine block and a short follower or are they the same long action magazine/follower as an -06?
A widow from my home town 2&1/2 hours away is selling one of these at a very reasonable price. I have never had a MK X in a short action cartridge before but am familiar with feeding issues with some military mausers that have been rebarreled to the 308 length cartridges. My brother who lives there has looked at it and says it's clean. My only hang up is the short cartridge long action issue. Am I worrying for nothing?
