Over the past 150 years, the name Mauser has become synonymous with sturdy, high-quality products. Now, the American Gunsmithing Institute (AGI), producers of the most authoritative Gunsmithing DVD courses, has released the Building the Custom Mauser Rifle two DVD set.
Taught by AGI Master Gunsmith Gene Shuey, this seven hour course will show the viewer each step, from removing old parts, to installing and head spacing a new barrel. In this epic production, which took over two years to develop and produce, the viewer will see a solid, old military 98 transformed into a classic hunting rifle. Shuey starts with two identical guns and then goes through every single conversion step in detail.
After a thorough discussion and identification of Mauser Actions, Shuey takes you step-by-step through the modification process including:
- Selecting actions
- Removing old hardware and barrel from the action using a barrel vise
- Selecting barrels
- Considerations installing
- Reaming and head spacing
- Barrel muzzle break installation
- Custom floor plate installation
- Bolt handle modifications
- Installing sights and soldering
- Selecting a stock
- Inletting and contouring the stock
- Basic checkering concepts
- Stock refinishing concepts
- And much more!
The AGI Building the Custom Mauser Rifle is available at www.americangunsmith.com for only $79.95 (Product ID#306DVD).
