 Bob Tuley - Clean Your Mauser Boy
The Mauser and it's many variants are some of the most accurate, most dependable rifles ever produced.
Beginning in the 1800's the Mauser factory in Germany began producing bolt action rifles; state of the art technology of the day.
Rather than having hand-fit to the extreme degree as is required of a craftman producing a Mauser, the Springfield could be made much faster and by lesser trained assembly-line workers by leaving the final tuning to the foot soldier, which history has proven served us well.

 Karabiner 98k - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Rifles with original German stocks have "7.62" burned into the heel of the rifle stock for identification and to separate the re-chambered Kar98ks from the original 7.92 mm versions of the weapon then in service or held in reserve, though some 98k rifles were fitted with new, unnumbered beech stocks of recent manufacture.
The Kar98k rifle was used by the reserve branches of the Israeli Defence Force well into the 1960s and 1970s and saw action in the hands of various Israeli Army support and line-of-communications troops during the 1967 Six-Day War and the 1973 Arab-Israeli War.
As of 2005, the Mauser Kar98k rifles that were captured by the Soviets during World War II and refurbished during the late 1940s and early 1950s have appeared in large numbers on the military surplus rifle market.

It does not have a Mauser marked butt plate and the bolt handle and safety switch had been specially milled for the hensoldt scope that is on it.
Mauser pretty much built these to order and had lots of options available, ie sights, triggers, triggerguard, barrel, etc. Without looking in my books to check I seem to remember that they ended production at about 130,000 but that includes actions supplied to custom gunsmiths.
