Voere 30-06

    I recently acquired a Voere Nato-Imperial in 30-06 (Mauser 98 action). It is a very beautiful gun and has a solid feel. I have yet to take out to the range yet but hope to soon. I have a few question that I hope you all could help me answer. This is my first Mauser action rifle so some of these questions might sound newbish.

    1)When loading a round into the chamber it almost feels as if the bolt is catching or hanging up on something for just a second, then everything is fine. Is this normal for Mauser actions?

    2) When I acquired this rifle the rear sight was missing. I am wanting a replacement but not sure on which way to go or what will fit properly. I have contacted Voere but have not gotten a reply back. The reason I want the rear sight is as backup for my scope and also so the rifle will be complete.

    3)There are some parts from the Voere website that I wish to order, but since no one there will respond to my email and you cannot order off of the internet I am wondering if someone could give me a link for Voere ordering or Mauser 98 accessories that work with Voere firearms.

    Thank you for your time and knowledge.

    Sthrnstrong, for Mauser 98 actions it is very important, to load the rounds from the magazine. If you putt a cartridge directly into the chamber and then close the bolt you risk to brake your extractor. M98 type actions are controled feed type, not push-feed like Rem 700. If you are loading your rifle in this fassion then the resistance that you feel is from the extractor bending over the rim.

    I wish that was the case. But, even when no rounds are in the chamber it still drags. The only thing I can think of is that I just need more practice with the action. I am use to the 700 action. Thank you for the info on the risk of breaking the extractor by push feeding I did not know that.
