OK, Mauser and Blaser, now it’s a party. One of the most important firearm designs of all-time, the venerable Mauser 98 celebrates a landmark birthday this year. And the 125th Anniversary Mauser 98 brings a remarkable bolt-action package to the party. But hold onto your hat, as you’d better bring the black card if you want one of these. These Mauser 98 rifles bring a $35,000 price tag.
125th Anniversary Mauser 98 Rifles
But oh my, does it look so good. Built on the classic safari platforms that captured so many of our imaginations back in the day, these modern Mauser 98 rifles comprise quite the package. Blaser will offer only 25 of the limited-edition rifles.
“The MAUSER 98 action is regarded as the forefather of all modern bolt-action rifles. Built in the millions, copied by the thousands, but never matched,” said Jason Evans, CEO, Blaser Group. “We will have the first 125th anniversary rifle, marked #1 in the series, for sale at the upcoming SCI Convention in Nashville, and it is truly a work of art.”
The action, bolt handle ball, trigger guard, pistol grip cap and magazine base all feature color case hardening. Gold damascening, English ornaments and an exquisite wood grade 8 stock, with red recoil pad, capture the classic look, regal look. But make no mistake, these are hunting rifles. And dangerous game capable cartridges, including .375 H&H and .416 Rigby, ensure you’re ready for your next safari.
