Manufactured by Mauser in the early 1980’s. This Mauser 105 .22LR semi automatic rifle is unusual as it functions using a blow back system. It is in immaculate condition and is a superb example of this increasing rare model with original woodwork/metalwork all in superb condition.
The rifle is out of my personal Mauser rimfire collection and I don't really want to sell but it is not being shot, is collecting dust, hence the sale. The rifle has been thoroughly restored and serviced making this rifle a nice addition to a classic rimfire collection.
The receiver is in very good condition with no notice wear and no loss of finish. The receiver has a ten round magazine which has a push button release at the front of the magazine housing. There is no safety catch as such but should the user want a safety mechanism, the bolt locks into the receiver. The single pull trigger releases at 5lb.15oz. Markings are the Mauser crest, factory, proof marks, calibre and serial number.
The heavy blow back bolt has no wear and no damage to the bolt face, it is fitted with twin extractors making extraction and ejection highly effective. Bolts function is smooth and reliable. Markings are limit to proof and inspectors stamps.
The rifle has a sporting 21” barrel with 100% bluing and foresight assembly. The rearsight as with many of these rifles has been lost and I have been unable to find a replacement. Barrel is crowned, has been threaded and fitted with a thread cover. Markings are the Mauser factory address, proof marks, calibre and model number.
Woodwork is beech, has been restored and is in excellent condition with no markings.
