About Product

Stated prices are for rifle without engraving. Prechtl manufacture MAUSER actions due to the original MAUSER drawings of Paul Mauser from the early thirties. Action and magazine boxes are milled from solid steel. Prechtl made the following modernizations: Reduced the bore for the firing pin from 2mm to 1,7mm because of to take into consideration the higher gas pressure of modern cartridges. Extended the external diameter of the bolt about 0,2mm. For to guarantee an excellent bolt slide, they reduced the stipulated case tolerance of the bolt about 50%. Extended the clearance of the magazine opening of the breech case about 1mm for to have space enough for high volume cartridges. Because of this they had also the possibility to enlarge the magazine box. The magazine box is available in the MAUSER standard sizes and original MAUSER 9,3x62 size - elongated about 1,5mm. Therefore also large cartridges like .300 Win.Mag. 8x68S, 9,3X64 have space enough and it is not necessary to machine the magazine boxes. The large box has an internal length of 86,5mm. Prechtl deliver the magazine boxes with fitted in magazine cover which can be opened by the snapper in the trigger guard. On it’s back the magazine cover is as long as it can be centered by the trigger guard. For to guarantee a higher safety of the spring, the extractor is elongated about 17mm. The firing pin nut is delivered with close nose. Therefore also modern shotgun triggers can be installed. Due to the design of the latest original MAUSER civil versions, Prechtl made a stud on the backside of the clearance for the bolt handle which serves as an additional guide and safety for the chamber. Free selection of the material for the breech case : annealed Swiss high-tensile steel with tensile strength between 900 and1100N/qmm, or a modern high power chrome-manganese steel, color case harden able with a core strength over 800 N/qmm. Prechtl makes this technical development for more reliability and safety for the marksman. They cut 14,8 kg of solid steel for each MAUSER standard action which has a total weight of only 1.350 kg after finishing. All parts are machined from the solid material. They deliver all breech cases hardened - or hardened after engraving. All surfaces are polished and ready for mounting - no polishing or filing is necessary. The action is prepared for scope mount and is in the standard delivered with the original MAUSER bolt sleeve and Recknagel shotgun trigger.
