Renowned rifle maker Mauser offers the Model 12 as part of its entry-level portfolio, in calibers ranging from .22/250 all the way up to .338 Win. Mag. A solid, all-steel construction, and newly developed 3-position horizontal safety system that acts directly on the firing pin contribute to the modern characteristics of this gun. But make no mistake, this is still a traditional long gun, which has a detachable box magazine with 5+1 capacity (4+1 for magnum calibers) and Rigby-style cheekpiece.

This rifle will be featured in the March 2014 issue of American Rifleman, but in the meantime, learn more about the gun and watch Mark Keefe send it downrange in this video.
