Mauser Jagdwaffen is introducing a brand new Mauser rifle—the Mauser M12—that combines quality with an affordable price.

With a receiver contoured to the Mauser 98, the M12 features a classic straight stock, pistol grip, fine checkering and wood scalloping around the receiver. It also has a 60 degree bolt life and a non-slip bolt handle for fast and smooth action.

The receiver is made from steel with a smooth, 2-pound trigger pull and interlocking barrel, with the bolt securely locked via six locking lugs. It also has a three-position SRS (Smooth Roll Safety) that acts directly on the firing pin for precise and noiseless operation.

The M12 will be available in April 2013 in two versions in a variety of chamberings from .22-250 Rem. to .338 Win. Mag. The M12 comes with a wood stock, while the M12 Extreme features a gray synthetic stock with soft touch coating. Rounding out the package is a light beige M12 cap, a new version of the Mauser long rifle case and ear protection.
