Mauser 98 Action
Drwaing from Olson, Ludwig, Mauser Bolt Rifles, Brownell, 1976.
Mauser Model 1898 Action- The premier bolt action, whose design by Paul Mauser coalesced in 1898, and from which were derived the Springfield 1903, the Winchester Model 70 and many others. Some of its salient features are: dual opposing forward locking lugs, web inside the front receiver ring, hollow turn-down bolt housing a coil-spring-loaded firing pin, non-rotating large claw extractor and safety which locks the firing pin. The preferred action upon which to build a custom bolt rifle. The above example, unaltered except for some aftermarket engraving.
