New Mauser M12

    Mauser M12

    The new Mauser M12 is now available according to the company.  The classically styled rifle comes with either a wooden stock or a synthetic stock.  All calibers and configurations are available with both stocks.  There are standard and magnum versions of the guns, each having different dimensions based on the cartridges.

    According to Mauser, the action is very smooth with a 60 degree bolt lift to speed cycling.  The trigger has an approximate two pound pull.

    The flush fitting magazine is detachable.  The rounds are staggered in the magazine to increase capacity.  For standard calibers, the M12 magazine holds five rounds.  For the magnum versions, the mags hold four rounds.  The magazines are metal, but polymer versions will also be available.

    The M12 has a three-position safety called a Smooth Roll Safety (SRS).

    The gun is drilled and tapped for scope mounting.  According to the company, any mounts designed for the Mauser 98 will fit the M12 “perfectly.”  The rifle does not ship with sights, but open sights can be added to the rifle for an additional charge.
