 Anyone know anything about the quality or rarity of these Mauser actions?  Saw a BEAUTIFUL custom rifle this weekend built around one. Told the owner I'd see what I could dig up.  Found most of the history about it but no hands on experience with them.

standard model as in prototype k98 or which variant. most of the value of a custom built in and action is shop hours, not the action. If the gun is orginal in every detail it is certainly worth more than..

  Dale,
  According to my NRA Mauser Rifles book it is a short(?) rifle which was produced comercially by the Mauser Co.in 7.9mm and 7mm in the 1920's. The book also says that China produced a crude copy called the Chang Kai-shek rifle. Also both original and copy were used by China in the war with Japan(1937-45),and also by Communist forces in Korea. It says that Mauser brochures do not tell directly what is meant by "Standard-Modell",but they do state that the 23.6"bbl gives special handiness,making the rifle standard for both infantry and calvary.
I briefly got to see a custom rifle built on one of these actions and chambered in 8x57mm.  So I find that China copied (like in stole) these rifles. Now I'm wondering what the quality of either original or copy would be. My book shows letter and crown marks to the left of the serial# which are German commercial proof marks. These are on the rifle I saw also. I wonder if China would have bothered copying these marks?
The rifle was built by the owner's hunting and fishing mentor(now deceased)at least 30yrs ago so now he would like to learn as much as he can about it. Not really concerned with value at all.
