    I just want to share my new baby with you. He is 9,3x62 and has been made by a great craftsman gunsmith here in Spain with a DWM mauser 98

    Thank you sestoppelman. Reading some of your posts I know 9,3x62 is one of your favorites.

    Stunning rifle Nsok.

    Excellent craftsmanship, and appears well proportioned.

    I've not personally used the 9.3x62, but from all accounts it should prove a very useful and effective all-rounder.

    You look like creating some fond hunting memories with this one.

    That first scratch is going to hurt though !

    What are you going to scope it with ?

    Thanks for sharing,
    Paul

    Thank you Paul. First scratch, first war wound will be doing what is has been made for, hunting,
    but yes, it will hurt a bit :) Scope is going to be Zeiss victory 1,5 - 6 x 42

    Very, very nice and I think that is the perfect scope choice for a 9.3x62.

    Beautiful rifle nsok! Can you tell me about the rings and bases? The front ring with that extension bringing it towards the rear is just thing I could used for my .375.
