With timeless and classic lines, the Voere Model 2155 incorporates all the features associated with the grandfather of all hunting rifles - the Mauser 98. Indeed, the 2155 is a modern day rendition of the Type B Mauser.
Voere has proven once again, that when the '98 Mauser action is outfitted with a good barrel, properly bedded in a good stock ,it is still one of the most rugged and reliable rifles of all time.
Voere’s Model 2155 and Model 2165 rifles have been on the market since 1965, and are based on the Santa Barbara Mauser ‘98 action made at the Spanish Military Arsenal at La Coruna in Spain with a number of variations. While it follows the classic Mauser ‘98 design, it is of new commercial manufacture and not a refurbished ex-military rifle. The extractor is beveled to slip over the rim of a chambered cartridge so that rounds can be singly loaded into the magazine. After the actions are received by Voere in Austria, they are smoothed up, fitted with a Lothar Walther barrel and then blued a deep black colour. The stocks which come from Italy are dense, close-grained walnut. Chambering options include a wide variety of American calibres which includes .222, .223, .22-250, .243, .25-06, .270, .308, .30-06, 7mm Rem. Mag.,.270 WSM, .300 WSM, .300 Win.Mag, .300 Weatherby,.338 Win. Mag., and .375 H&H ; metric calibres listed are: 6.5x55, 6.5x57, 6.5x68, 7x57, 7x64, 8x57IS, 8x68S, and 9.3x62
The Voere’s receiver has a flat bottom with an integral recoil lug under the receiver ring that’s larger than that of the original military M 98. The rear face of the lug bears squarely against an alloy crossbolt with a recoil shoulder inserted through the stock ahead of the magazine well. This recoil shoulder absorbs the impact of recoil instead of the wood. A pair of relatively rigid action siderails form the mid-section.
The Voere Model 2165 action has all the features that have made the M 98 the most copied design in the history of small arms. Most characteristic is the external non-rotating claw extractor attached via a collar around the bolt body. There isn’t any more positive extraction system than the Mauser design. Ejection is handled by a spring-loaded arm which contacts the case rim through a slot cut in the left locking lug. The ejector is integrated in the bolt stop mounted on the left side of the receiver bridge.
