Mauser M03: weapon overview

15

One of the broad areas of use of the so-called "civil" weapons - hunting. It has its own niches and peculiar weapon circles of preference. Some make a choice exclusively in favor of domestic versions of small arms, others prefer European manufacturers, and still others tend to acquire overseas hunting weapons.


In this story, the Kalashnikov concern's specialist Evgeny Spiridonov reviews the Mauser Mauser M03 rifle.

Evgeny Spiridonov:

My choice fell on a Mauser M03 with a .458 Lott main barrel.

This is a hunting cartridge caliber of 11,63 × 71 mm, the development of which in 2021 marks exactly half a century. And the creator of this powerful cartridge is American gunsmith Jack Lott, who decided to develop a replacement for the .458 Winchester Magnum.

Speaking about the Mauser M03, the expert notes that the weapon is, in fact, a kind of designer. That is why an order was made for several additional barrels.

The open sighting device "Mauser" M03 consists of a rear sight and a fairly large front sight. The weapon has a technological device for damping recoil, which can hardly be called effective as a muzzle brake.

    And it looks like TOZ-8, if not for the caliber of the barrel.

        For that kind of money, you can buy a civilian version of the HK416 with a full body kit. But to go hunting with him ... they won't understand. repeat
        Personally, although I am a rogue, I am ready to pay a thousand and a half for a hunting weapon, a maximum of two, but almost 5 is already snobbery.

          but almost 5 is already snobbery.

          $ 5000 for snobbery is not worth it. In the photo Peter Hofer - from 200 pounds.

    This has nothing to do with the Mauser 98k. A Blaser creation, but with a three-point bolt action. A very economically made contraption with historical roots. Was in two calibers, parted without regret.

    I do not know about other colleagues on the site, but I am a little enraged when instead of a description they offer to watch videos. If I am interested, there is a YouTube. Pichal, the site was ok, but alas (

    To hunt a certain animal, a cartridge is selected.
    And only after that the weapon.
    Then zeroing in with factory cartridges, correction, independent bullet / gunpowder equipment.
    Again zeroing the series, correction.
    There is a lot of things, I hope I got the main idea.
    On the subject: I personally do not need such a product.

    Although I respect German weapons living in Germany as a German, you Russians have no worse guns with which you can also hunt well.
