INHO this should be a gimme? Didn't the Israeli's do this with the Nazi K98Ks after WWII?

I have had 3 22-250 98 Mausers, a small ring 98 .243 Win, and a 98/22 in .308. In each case, they fed fine. Maybe I was lucky. I will state that if the 48 has a good 8x57mm barrel, i would leave it alone. The 8mm is as good of a cartridge as the .308 or .358 Win.
IMHO based on use.

|gene_225||Years ago, 50+, my uncle rebarreled an Ariska 7.7 to .308 Win. Feeding was always problamatic. He did some work on the claw extractor by grinding it to allow it to slip over the rim, but keeping the shorter cartridges where they would feed was always a problem as some have described above.|

|mannyrock||Most die-hard mauser fans won't touch a Santa Barbara rifle, due to concerns about quality control and metal used in the actions. That is why they are normally priced much cheaper than a quality made mauser.|

|ulav8r||The few Santa Barbara mauser actions I've seen were well made and fitted, but not as nice as an FN action as seen in some of the Sears rifles. They were made in Spain and may not have as high a standard of fit, finish, and quality control as an FN.|

The Sears FN Mausers are first rate. $250 is a great price for one.
The Santa Barbara Mausers are total, absolute, junk, pieced together from old mausers, spare parts, knock-off parts. Zero reason to buy one.

I looked at a 7x57 mouser sporter at the Gun show today I ask the vender if it was a 98m and he said no it is a 96 don't know much about either but it did look nice I think price was 500,00
