Are Mauser actions accurate?

Can a husquvarna be mounted on a Mauser 98?

Can a military Mauser be converted to a hunting rifle?
One of the most striking features of Wolf’s conversion is the butter-smooth bolt. No rifle in my collection comes close. There’s no hint of binding.

How does the striker work on a Mauser rifle?
The original Mauser safety, when rotated fully to the right, locks both the bolt and striker. With the safety in the upright, 12 o’clock position, the bolt is unlocked but the striker is not, enabling one to unload the rifle or to be in readiness to shoot. When the safety is rotated completely to the left, the rifle is ready to be fired.
