At the 2013 IWA, Mauser presented the new carabine M12. Its technical attributes and accuracy are enhanced by elegant design features including a classic straight “Prince of Wales” stock, pistol grip, fine checkering and wood scalloping around the receiver. A short 60 bolt lift and non-slip bolt handle knob enable fast and smooth repeating with a double ejector ensuring strong ejection of the cartridge. Direct locking in the barrel via 6 large locking lugs results in optimum shooting performance, maximum stability and utmost safety for the hunter. Highest safety demands are met by the enhanced, easy-to-handle 3-position safety SRS (Smooth Roll Safety) which acts directly on the firing pin. A roll on the inside of the safety provides an easy, precise and low-noise operation. The firing pin flange prevents the cartridge from igniting unless the chamber is completely closed. The crisp and clean (2lb) trigger pull allows very accurate shooting.
