One of my buddies that has drilled Mausers suggested a carbide drill. I know nothing about these actions but if they're hardened, that type of drill is a must. I'd probably use a carbide end mill the nominal diameter and go down below the surface hardness before tapping.

No need for a carbide drill to drill a Mauser action, they are not that hard and if you break one off in the receiver then you have another problem that can be hard to overcome.

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
