Has anyone have experience with the new Mauser M12 rifle? Fit, finish, function and accuracy? Thanks!

Not sure if itís that model but there is a new Mauser that is relatively affordable.  Problem being is the barrel is pressed in not threaded makes re-barreling almost impossible. 
 Might want to check on that

Well, it's to late, I purchased one already and it's at home. I was quite aware that the barrel was heat treated into the receiver and wasn't to concerned over it. I know that I won't shoot the barrel out, however there may be other reasons for replacing it. When I cross that bridge I will have to deal with it.
I really can't say anything negative about the gun, except that the wood is only a grade one. The rest is perfect, fit and finish, beautiful trigger, open sights, three position safety, cold hammer forged barrel and receiver, etc. BTW, they retail for $2,250.00 plus GST, in Canada, a lot less expensive than their Mauser MO3.
