Dangerous Game Hunting: The Mauser M98 Magnum

May 25, 2019

The Mauser M98 Magnum rifles evoke the nostalgia and romance of old Africa. M98 Magnums are the ULTIMATE partner whether hunting elephant in the Caprivi strip in Namibia or stalking forest buffalo in the dense forest of Central Africa. Hunters rely on the legendary reliability and performance of the rifle that conquered Africa: the Mauser M98 Magnum. 


We recommend the Mauser M98 Magnum as the most dependable bolt action rifle to take down dangerous game. Along with a five-shot magazine capacity, this M98 Magnum has you covered in any situation.

 

THE DESIGN

The 98 design has been consistently improving since 1898 starting off with the Mauser 98 Karbine Model M24/47 that was first manufactured in 1924. Then the World War II-era K98k which served has a standard service rifle by the German Wehrmacht as well as several other military forces at the time.

 

Fast forward, the modern M98 Magnum design is based on a double square bridge action made from a full block of steel. Two massive recoil bars and slightly longer stock are incorporated to provide for the larger caliber options: .375 H&H, .416 Rigby, or ,450 Rigby. Thanks to the unparalleled long extractor, the controlled feed, and amazing bolt cycle, each shot is delivered with speed and absolute reliability.

The contemporary M98's are a perfect blend of a reliable classic design with modern manufacturing techniques, making it more durable, powerful, and efficient than ever before. It utilizes several key features that are vital while big-game hunting.

 

The M98 incorporates a traditional rear-mounted three-position flag safety which is simpler to use and more compact. In addition, Mauser utilizes a contemporary three-pound trigger with no pullback or over-travel that rivals target firearms. While out in the field, this trigger is a feature to be greatly appreciated. 

 

To top it all off, Mauser coats all their new M98's with a plasma nitride finish that provides an excellent defense against corrosion while giving the metal a deep, beautiful shine that makes you fall in love with it instantly.
