A short, cut-down Mauser M48 that was sold by Mitchell’s Mausers as the M63 Tanker. Still chambered in 8mm Mauser, it was also available in 30-06. Recoil and muzzle blast are as expected; fairly harsh in comparison to the full sized rifle.
Mitchell’s Mausers has a rather negative reputation in the shooting community because of their false advertising. Many claim that they scrub serial numbers to force matching numbers and put fake German markings on their K98’s. I can’t say for sure if the rumors are true, I’ve never bought one of their rifles. A lot of their stuff is overpriced, for example they charge $1,200 for a Mosin Nagant PU sniper.
