The Mauser M12 Black Impact is built for hunting in less than ideal terrain and weather. It incorporates a synthetic stock with non-slip soft touch technology which offers an excellent grip in the worst weather conditions. It also has an teflon coated barrel for maximum corrosion resistance. This rifle features a barrel that is threaded with a 15x1 pitch for barrel accessories, extended bolt handle with a 60 degree bolt throw, detachable 5-round magazine. With the accuracy that generations have come to expect from a Mauser there is no reason this should not be a serious contender for you next hunting rifle.
