Don’t be deceived by the vaguely scary payoff “the People’s Rifle”: the newly-introduced Mauser M18 is a real deal, being offered at just 699 USD. A solid, no-frills hunting real Mauser hunting rifle, the M18 is advertised as a gun that “brings together all the essentials for hunting in the best possible way and does not include anything that isn’t necessary in the field”.
Among its features, a cold-hammered barrel made of special steel with sub-MOA precision guaranteed, an adjustable trigger, and a synthetic stock with non-slip inlays on the pistol grip and forearm. Opening a butt-cap, the stock also reveals a storage space for important tools such as cleaning kit. Magazine is a classic removable, Mauser double-row 5-round type. The optics on the tested Mauser M 18 is the new Minox ZP3 (you can see it in the opener image). That’s an affordable version for US-hunters.
