custom Mauser rifle,Caliber is .22-250. The rifle is a heavy barrel custom built on a small ring Mexican 98 Mauser action. The 26" heavy barrel is marked with an "H" inside a "C" which I believe makes it a Carl Hottenstein made rifle.The overall condition of the rifle is good.The custom made target stock shows some finish wear and scuffs. It has a contrasting nose piece and pistol grip cap. The bore is clean and the action seems to work fine. The front and rear receiver rings are drilled and tapped. The front ring and barrel have scope blocks mounted for a Unertl type scope. Overall, an interesting Mauser custom.
