Rifles With Mauser 98 Commercial Scope Mounting Surface

The Mauser 98 Commercial rifle is a development from the numerous post-World War II Mauser models and lacks the bulb on the receiver, which was used during the war for faster reloading with stripper clips. This change results in a larger mounting surface on the receiver, making the scope mounts non-interchangeable with those of the older models. Known for its robust action featuring a three-locking-lug bolt, controlled feed extractor, and three-position safety, the Mauser 98 Commercial continues to influence modern rifle designs due to its reliability and the historical importance of its action system.
