    Remington Mauser 798. 7= like Remingtons 7xx and 98= Mausers 98. Sounds fine to me.

    They are the same Yugo made commercial Mausers that used to be imported into the US under the Charles Daley name. Since remington started to import them under their banner, the prices went up.

    Well, you can charge more when you have a name like Remington. Looks like anyone who wants one should have bought it back when Charles Daly was offering them without the prestigious name. And I'd kind of like to have one myself.

    The Interarms MarkX is also in that same family. The Bosnian War of the early 1990's put them out of business.

    Having held one and operated the action, I was really underwhelmed. The safety is not on the bolt but along the side, the action itself was very rough and gritty, and the wood was just okay.

    Yeah, it's leagues better than a 770, but for a Mauser action, folks would be much better off with a Ruger or CZ.

    I've got one of the earlier Daly Mauser actions built into a .458 Winny, and it's been an excellent gun. From what I've seen it looks like Remmy had them build them to an even lower price, put a bad stock on them, and raised the price. Quite a good business model there Remmy, keep it up.

    Quit blaming Remington. It is their parent company, Cerberus, that is having the evil impact on a good gun manufacturer. If you have any complaints, send the emails to Cerberus...... I have.
