The Dumoulin Mauser actions are coming in the country right now.
Just the 3 position safety is worth the cost of the complete action.
I have been sporterizing and building Mausers for 49 years, and these are a real deal.
The catch?
You need to speak a foreign languages and be in Europe to find scope mounts that fit.
It is worse than a CZ527.
But they are .860" space  6-48 holes in front [like a curved bottom #46 Weaver] and .504" space 6-48 holes in the rear [like a curved bottom #45 Weaver] just like a Mauser should have. But the bridges are flat on top. See my sketch attached.

So I just ordered Weaver S61 bases [.860"]  that are flat on the bottom, and some 7/32" end mills to countersink a screw hole at .504" in half of them.

The prices at SWFA were much cheaper for Weaver #61 steel bases. I hope they are in stock.

 I ended up milling the bottom sides flat on a Weaver S45 and a Weaver S54.


629 yards with those mounts on a 6.5-05.

That was 120 gr Nosler Ballistic Tip that I molly coated, 50.7 gr IMR-4166 [think of it as IMR4895 with temperture stabilizing and anti Copper fouling coatings] 3.34", 3236 fps 65kpsi Quickload, 3197 fps chrono, sighted in with marks on tape on the SIII 3.5x10x44 scope out to 600 yards. I had to aim at the level of the top of the back to hit her at 629 yards. It was a hail Mary, unethical shot. But if I filled that last tag, for a doe whitetail, I could go home. I can shoot a mule doe once a day for a month. I can shoot a 3x3 mule buck every 4 days. I have never previously been able to get a whitetail doe. They are just too wary.
