Just bought this beauty!

Been wanting some type of mauser or other CRF rifle as kind of a beater, loaner, ride in the car rifle. Picked this one up on gunbroker for a good price. Though honestly she's almost too pretty to spend time in the car.

Interarms Mark X in 30-06

With a weird magnifier in front! Must be the new slimline design.

Beautiful rifle for a quick pick-up!

Nice!

All- did all Interarms rifles in that line have such graceful bolt handle sweep?

Don't know that much about Interarms. Only seen them in magazine advertizements. But your new addition sure appears to be a quality looking 30-06 {no doubt about that.} Curious. How's its trigger preformance?

Have you guys seen those Zastava Mini-Mausers in .223 and 7.62x39? I've heard those were pretty good rifles. Pretty good price too.

I'll let you know how the trigger is once I get her in my hands. As for the mini mauser's I'm sure they're good rifles I don't like em since they aren't really mauser actions haha.

Yes. Zastava copied "that other" company that made Mauser 98 copies (FN). And most commercial Mausers have copied it as well.

personally

I'd rather have a used Mark X than any of the poly stock, price point rifles that seem to be flooding the market these days.

Those are solid, dependable rifles. I've had a couple. They are a workhorse, not a show horse.

Workhorse was exactly what I wanted. She's gonna spend more of her time bouncing around in my trunk. I was away from home at work all weekend so check is going out tomorrow, If i'm lucky I can pick her up this weekend.

I've heard nothing but good things about the zastava built mauser rifles, and am really looking forward to it.

It's a low cost, rugged mauser hunting rifle and looks to be in good shape too.
