So I was reading the internet like I do and saw that Mexico had a Mauser chambered in .30-06. I lived in Mexico for 2 years so it peaked my interest. Are they any good? and can they be found in the states?

I have a Mexican Mauser I inherited it this last year. However it was made in Germany and bought by the Mexicans it is a 98 action chambered in 7mm mauser and was in poor shape so iI refinishedit . The bore is in excelent shape and it shoots very well. Groups as tight if not tighter then my yougo 47. Great gun it has no import marks and has 1903 stamped on the receiver. I would post a picture , but this site seems to be differant then other sites if any one could share with me how to post pics on this site that would be great.

Mexico actually manufactured TWO bolt action rifles.

First was the Model 1936 in 7mm Mauser.
This has been very popular with custom builders in past years, since the action is a combination of Mauser and 1903 Springfield features.

The second was the Model 1954 which is a Mauser and 1903-A3 Springfield combination with a receiver mounted peep sight. It was in 30-06.

Build quality was good, but rougher than either Mauser or American standards, and the typical rifle is pretty badly worn and pitted, considering the years and hard use they were put to.

Thanks, like I said I am interested because I lived in Mexico for 2 years, so I wouldn't mind if it wasn't in the best condition, of course a good condition one would be nice
