Folks,

Any thoughts on Remington's new rifles based on the Mauser 98 action?

These are the same Zastava commercial rifles that used to be sold by Charles Daly. Remington is now marketing them and the prices went up. All the best...
Gil

This is from the Remington website. I tried to post the link and was not successful. All the best...

"Model 798.â„¢ The Model 98 Mauser Action Is Alive And, Well, Better Than Ever.

American soldiers brought it back from both world wars, and America’s oldest gunmaker is proud to bring one of the most trusted bolt actions of all time – the Model 98 Mauser – back into mainstream production. That’s right, you no longer have to rely on military surplus supplies or high-cost custom gunmakers to get your hands on this classic. Long revered for its superior strength, smooth, reliable cartridge feed and inherent accuracy, it’s now available from Remington in a wide range of modern calibers, both short and long action. And we reworked these rifles from butt to bore to meet the aesthetic and performance demands of today’s hunter and shooter.

The long-action Model 798â„¢ (square-bridge Mauser 98) features a richly blued barrel and receiver, and American-made brown laminated stock. To dampen recoil, we added a one-inch rubber butt pad. Barrels are clean, and receivers are drilled and tapped for standard Mauser 98 (long- and short-action) scope mounts.

Expect silky, ultra-positive feeding and ejection, rock-solid durability and exceptionally fast lock time. Influencing the design of virtually every bolt action made today, the Model 98 Mauser never died. It just needed a revival. We’re sure you’ll agree our version was worth the wait."
