This sweet little Mexican 98 Mauser features a small ring receiver, so it's very slim. It was made by Smokie in Illinois before he moved to NM.. The whole rifle has been made short, slender and light, with a 22" barrel, and a 12 7/8" stock pull. .257 Ackley Improved Roberts caliber shoots reloads or factory ammo, as with all Ackley chamberings. Cheek piece, sling swivels, recoil pad, and Weaver blocks round it out.
