For about the last 140 years, Mauser has brought to market rifles and pistols that have not only stood the test of time, but have inspired the shooting industry with mechanical innovations. Fast forward to SHOT Show 2018: Mauser released a bolt-action rifle geared toward America's riflemen and riflewomen, and at a friendly price—the M18. This synthetic-stocked bolt-action rifle features a cold-hammer-forged steel barrel, detachable box magazine and ergonomic styling.
