Living legend.

WHEN IT COMES to premium rifles For dangerous-game hunting, only one name really matters: Mauser. The world's most reliable rifle action was perfected 117 years ago--just about every "improvement" since then has been a step in the wrong direction. What started as a rifle built to function in the rigors of combat quickly evolved into the foundation for some of the finest sporting rifles ever made. The most coveted of all Mausers are the magnum-length actions designed to accommodate the massive cartridges designed for Africa's Big five. Originals sell for thousands regardless of condition, and entire companies have been founded to try to recreate the design.

Rejoice! The M98 and M98 Magnum Mausers have returned. Once again made in Germany and available in the U.S., the Magnum is chambered in the infallible .375 H&H and .416 Rigby and built in the express rifle style that evolved over decades of East African hunting. You know that a Mauser will feed, go bang, and extract every time, which makes it the standard for dangerous game. Add in the generous magazine capacity and a stock made for fast handling and you are ready for the thick stuff, for the price of a cheap Cape buffalo hunt, you get a proven insurance policy against things that bite, stomp, and claw. 512,999
