  1. Hi Jorge,
    I have never bought any factory ammo or surplus for my Mauser. The original grain bullet was 196, I hear that the Yugoslavian surplus is good but I never tried it.
    I saw a box today at the local gun store it was Sellior and Belliot for $19 for 20 rounds.

    Ok Peter,

    I will not, I dot want to decrease the value. I will let you know how it shoots. The thing is that our shooting range down here is closed. They are re-doing it and making some renovations so it wont open until late december I think. Gives me time to buy Ammo now.

    Any suggestions on ammo since I do not reload?
  3. Jey Jorge,
    I would not blue it. It will effect the value if you ever decide to sell it. I would leave it the way it is-it wont effect the way it shoots.
    Let me know how you make out on the screw problem.

    Hey Peter,

    What do you think about re-touching the blueing on some of the parts on the barrel and the trigger guard and stuff. Do you think I should do this? I dont want to mess up the history of the rifle by any means. I was thinking of doing it my self.

    By the way im still dealing with my screw problem on my Mauser. I am taking it to a gunsmith this weekend and letting them take a look at it.

    I did the stock re touch though. I gotta say im pretty pleased. I used the howards and it looks nice! I got rid of alot of oil and dark spots from the stock and after the howards, it has a nice patina to it. Also the wood feels nicer and just looks better, it has more color to it. It is still half assembled though, so I can take t to the gunsmith, but im thinking of leaving it that way until I refinish some of the bluing. I dont want to take the gun apart like that so many times. I dont know though, I am contemplating it.

    PJ,
    I sent you an email.
  6. Hello JCROWNII,
    I have 3 Mausers and I haven't taken the bolts apart. I just soaked them in Hoppes and got the cosmoline off. Mineral spirits are what a lot of people use. Unscrew the metal from the wood. You will see the screws underneath the near the trigger guard. When I took mine apart I just used Rem Oil. The stock came out good.
    Tipton cleaning rods are excellent. Find a brass brush. I also use a nylon brush. Hoppes then Rem oil. Just clean after shooting until the patches go from black t gray.
    Good Luck

    PJ,
    That is some very interesting information. I am in Florida so I think im a long ways away from you but I appreciate your help very much. I just want to take the bolt apart and clean it up. I have seen some videos and think I can do it.

    My concern is about the stock. I just want to make it look nicer. I am going to try mineral spirits with a little bit of howards feed n wax I think its called.

    What tools do you think I need to clean the rifle as far as shooting goes.
    I am thinking of getting a tipton cleaning rod, bronze cleaning brushes for 8MM, and just the usual cleaning supplies. Let me know anything else I would need.

    Thanks

    PJ,
    I will surely take care of it. I am trying to gain as much knowledge as I can about my rifle so I can do so. Can you tell me the history behind the M1930 Greek Mausers? How did they end up over there? Please if you can, help me out when I get my rifle. It should be here in a couple of days; I will let you know when I get it. I want to clean it up, take it down completely and oil it up very nicely when I first receive it. Where can I find a gunsmith? at a gun store right? or can I just take it in a gun store and let them take a look at it?
