Too be continued
I mixed up the acraglas and applied it to the front lug and pillar. Then clamped it all together. Now it needs to cure for 48 hours.
Great work 7.62x39 !!!!
I like your trigger/housing with the bottom hinge. Is that a steel aftermarket one ???

Yes, it's steel. I did a lot of searching around for that. Numrich has the best deal out there. This is the third time I've used one, which speaks for itself.
Trigger Guard, Hinged, Commercial
Most steel ones are in the $150+ range. Some are really crazy

GREAT THREAD . ID LOVE TO HAVE ALL THE TOOLING YOU HAVE TO DO MINE ( WHEN GET A RECIVER/ACTION) . LOOKS LIKE YOU GOT A FEW BUCKS TIED UP IN TOOLING . IM REALLY HESITANT TO BUY ALL THAT FOR ONE GUN . IF I HAD THE TOOLING LIKE THAT ID HAVE BEEN BUILDING MAUSERS A LONG TIME AGO.
GREAT PICS AN EVERY THING. THIS IS WHAT I NEED FOR INFO.
WHY DONT THEY USE A RECOIL LUG LIKE A REMINGTON ACTION ???????
I saw a Spaindau? GEM 98 COBBLED SPORTER AT A SHOP ON THURSDAY ITS A ROUGH LOOKING GUN. THE METALL LOOKS GOOD AT LEAST ABOVE THE WOOD LINE.
I MAY GO BACK AN ASK IF THE SHOP WILL LIT ME LOOK UNDER THE WOOD. THE GUY IS A REAL DICK HEAD. HE GOT PISSED BECUASE O OPENED THE ACTION. I DONT KNOW WHO BUYS A USED GUN WITH OPENING THE ACTION. ITS MISSUNG THE CAPTURE SCREWS AN WHO KNOWS WHAT ELSE IS WRONG. I CAN GET IT FOR AROUND $180 . ITS A GERMAN RECIVER ANT HE BOLT IS BENT . I COULD TELL IF THE BOLT WAS MATCHING OR NOT . ID ALMOST RATHER BUY ONE THATS BEEN TRUED AN HAS A GOOD TRIGGER ALREADY FOR A $100 MORE.
I HAVE A NICE BORE ( FROM WHAT I CAN SEE) SCHULTS AN LARSEN BARREL IN 6.5X55. ITS FOR A MODEL 58 TARGET RIFLE APPARENTLY THEY WERE MADE FOR THE DANISH SHOOTING TEAM. ITS 27.5" LONG AN IS A LOW TAPER THAT IS ABOUT .770" AT TEH MUZZEL. I WAS GOING TO USE IT FOR A AK BUILD BUT ID LIKE TO SEE WHAT IT WOULD DO ON A BOLT ACTION .
yes great post its good to see someone working on something besides a AK, I started working with mausers as a boy in the early sixties, great way for one to get real experience, slapping ak's and ar's together is not smithing
love the tools you have also, wish we had more threads like this
Sprat and sprat1 are one and the same.
When I bought all the tooling a few years back, I already had 3 receivers in hand and envisioned doing even more. Receivers were cheap and plentiful.
I finished two and got as far as the receiver prep on this one, when I kind of lost interest and moved on to something else.
I was glad when we started talking about Mausers here lately, it gave me the motivation to dust this project off and finish it up.
I might consider renting out the tool package (everything except the ream and gauges) to members.
I WOULD BE UP FOR POSSABLY RENTING THE TOOLING. I NEED TO GET ALL MY DUCKS IN A ROW FIRST.
MY FIRST QUESTION IS HOW FAR OFF IS THIS STUFF TO START WITH???? I GUESS I NEVER COULD FIGURE OUT HOW IT WAS MACHINED SO WRONG TO START WITH . I HEAR HOW REMINGTONS NEED ALL THIS WORK AN WONDER HOW WAS IT DONE SO FAR OFF FROM THE START???
SEEMS TO ME IF A GUY HAS THE BOLT FACE TRUE TO THE BORE AN BOTH LUGS ARE MAKING GOOD CONTACT IT SHOULD BE ACCURATE.
WHAT DO YOU AVOID WHEN LOOKING AT A RECIVER ????
IF A MAUSER ALREADY HAS A FACTROY BENT BOLT WILL IT CLEAR MOST SCOPES???
I SEE MANY BOLT HANDELS HAS A RELIEVED AREA EVEN WHEN ITS BENT. SOME OF THE GERMAN MAUSERS HAD BENT BOLTS BUT THEY LOOK SHORT ARE THESE WORKABLE WITH A SCOPE AS IS?????
I WILL BE RUNNING BIG OPTICS ON WHAT EVER I BUILD.
SEEMS LIKET ERE ARE A ZILLION TRIGGERS THAT FIT LARGE RING MAUSERS BUT DO THEY FIT ALL LARGE RING MAUSERS???
ILL BE NEEDING A TARGET TRIGGER AROUND 14 OZ OR SO
IM ENVESIONING A LONG RANGE VARMINT GUN 800 YARDS AN BEYOND.
