(*) The rifle I have access to. Other manufacturers produced this rifle.
The Mauser bolt is very easy to operate. The striker is cocked on opening the bolt.
When the internal magazine is empty, the bolt will not move forward until new rounds are added or the magazine follower is pushed down.
The Mauser has a 3 positions safety switch:
Note that the safety switch cannot be operated if the rifle is not cocked.
The rear sight is a V-notch ladder, with graduations from 100 to a very optimistic 2000 meters in increments of 100 m.
The front sight is a hooded post. It can be moved for windage corrections.
