Custom 303 Mauser 98
      #298701 - 08/04/17 09:54 AM

While I was over at Patos taking some pics of his WR318 I also took a couple of his custom 98 in 303.
Another super sweet rifle built be an old mate of his.

What a cracker! That is a very nice custom build and in a quite different caliber selection as well.

Love that 303! Can you provide any details about the extractor and magazine? I'd love to know how they were made!

That is a sweet looking rifle. I do like the timber in the stock.

The 303 is still a very capable round and in an accurate rifle will still shoot with the best of them.

If only it was for sale!

Absolutely Gorgeous rifle!!

What would be a good starting action to look at doing a 303 build on?

Papascarface - sometimes Mauser 98ís in 303 come up for sale on usedguns. Keep an eye out there.

Siamese Mauser actions have all the prerequisites for accommodating rimmed cartridges, including slant magazines. The 8X52 Siamese cartridge has an overall length of 2.96" versus 3.05" for the .303, so the magazine might have to be altered or handloads adjusted to fit. The actions have been successfully used in connection with .303 British, .348 Winchester and .45-70 Government ammunition.

The Simese.....and of course the super rare Original Orbemdorf are the only action you can sucessfully do this with.
Good luck with find an Orbenforf example on UG.....only around 100?? were made...............................

Claydog,

Lovely rifle Pato has there.

Who was the custom maker? The gold etched ".303 British" reminds me of a particular maker. But it slips my mind at the moment????
