    Ran into a snag with the PH Mauser. It has excessive headspace! I had the gunsmith check it on a whim and the bolt didn’t even slow down on the no go gauge, with 3 layers of tape it gave “some resistance.” So 
    , that’s a hard pass! It would explain the bottom  locking lug that was polished....... maybe that was an issuer there

    Have your smith set the barrel back one thread and re-cut the chamber, but lap the bolt lugs into full contact first.  It's not a difficult job, but it might not be cost-effective for a used rack rescue.

    That's just common courtesy - or so I've been told.

    The stock and action was worth the price, even with a rebarrel.

    Unfortunately a custom build won’t be in the cards for a while for me...as much as in hate to do it this one will get away.

    If you can't afford it right now just put it in the back of the safe and wait till the gun fund runnuth over. But setting it back like described won't cost that much and will give you a .30-06.

    376 Steyr. 

    I know where you can get a M98 threaded 375" un chambered barrel,  and 100 rounds of ammo for good price.  Also happen to know a mauser specialist smith who has the reamer and works pretty cheap in colorado

    Also know where there is a pre-threaded long chambered 9.3x62 M98 barrel available.  Just needs to be screwed on and blued

    Thanks, but the Mauser has gone to another guy...... a Mauser guy up north here. He did come back to the shop and said the magazine was bad too. He added new bottom metal.
