Sporting rifles represent an older Mauser tradition, though always a small part of the company’s output (historically), these rifles have always represented the jewels of the line. Comparing Mauser military rifles to their sporting rifles that were/are produced is like comparing a VW off the production line to a hand tooled Porsche. Finely tuned and beautifully finished, Mauser sporting rifles have been sold since the company’s early days up until the present. The Mauser was so appreciated it became part of the owners life, a family heirloom, and generated an incredible mystique. In other words, the real mystique of the Mauser is not in the military rifles, but in these highly refined sporters.
It is also worth noting that these have been imported and sold by exclusive firearm shops for years. Also, expect to spend around $12,000 for an entry level model. I hope to purchase one in 2015!
