i have a mauser sporter in 30-06 that shoots great. it is a single shot because the mag is not long enough for the 30-06 m2 ball rounds. i have looked for a 30-06 length mag/trigger guardwith no luck other than the $$$ custom option. can anyone scheck if the mag/trigger guard from the springfield will fit on a standard length mauser action? thanks

it is a german mauser made in 1917. it is a standard length action. the only ammo i have is m2 ball and 168 ballistic silver tips and they are both to long for the mag.

Sounds like you need to take up reloading. Work up loads with LOA that will fit and feed thru your mag.

the action is fine it is the mag that is short. i know that m2 ball and the 168 grain ballistic tips are very long OAL. maybe i will buy a box of plinking ammo and see how it fits. i don't have a digi cam or scanner, not that i would know how to post pics even if i did.
