NEW from the master gunsmiths at Mauser comes a limited edition Mauser 98 to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the company. 

Styled after the classic safari rifles of the early 1900s only 25 of these masterpieces will be made.

“The MAUSER 98 action is regarded as the forefather of all modern bolt-action rifles. Built in the millions, copied by the thousands, but never matched,” said Jason Evans, CEO, Blaser Group. “We will have the first 125th anniversary rifle, marked #1 in the series, for sale at the upcoming SCI Convention in Nashville, and it is truly a work of art.”

Everything about these limited edition rifles is built to an extravagant level. While functional firearms, these really are collector pieces and works of art. While that puts them wildly outside of the price range for normal people, it’s still nice to see to know they at least exist. Even if they only exist in bank vaults. 

The action, bolt handle ball, trigger guard, pistol grip cap and magazine base of these limited-edition rifles are color case hardened and, together with gold damascening, English ornaments and an exquisite wood grade 8 stock with a red recoil pad, give these masterpieces a unique and elegant look.


  • Bolt handle ball with color case hardening, fish scale checkering and gold inlay
  • Color case hardening with English scroll
  • Engraved Original Mauser logo, inlaid in gold
  • Color case hardened trigger guard with serial number of the anniversary model
  • Wood grade 8 (walnut)
  • Red recoil pad
