New from MAUSER at the IWA 2016: the bolt-action MAUSER M 12 will be available beginning June 2016 with a manual cocking system

MAUSER manual cocking system for M 12

The MAUSER M 12 hunting rifle has become a distinctive and timeless rifle thanks to many innovations in the last several years. MAUSER will also be introducing the M 12 with a manual cocking system at the IWA 2016 — the M 12 S. The new M 12 S continues to offer all of the functions which have made the model so successful. Moreover, silent cocking is now possible even in a shooting position thanks to the manual cocking system.


The firing pin spring is tensioned just before the shot is released. The gun can therefore be carried with absolute safety in a loaded but uncocked condition. The manual cocking system of the Mauser M 12 has been designed so that the chamber in uncocked condition is automatically secured against being opened accidentally. Light pressure on the cocking lever toward the right suffices to be able to open the chamber uncocked. The cocking lever is built in horizontally so that it can easily be operated even with gloves and low-mounted telescopic sights. The state of the manual cocking system is clearly recognizable via the position of the cocking lever and the additional color marking. The MAUSER M 12 S with a manual cocking system will be available beginning June 2016.
