M-48 Yugoslavian Mauser

in 8mm (7.92x57)


This is an excellent M-48 Mauser rifle. I don't really know a lot about these but I'll describe it the best I can.

 Overall it's in very good condition for the age. Appears to have been arsenal refurbished. All numbered parts match. The stock and magwell plate have been forced matched at the arsenal. The stock is sound with the usual dents and dings. The blued metal parts have about 90% of the color left. The bore is excellent with good rifling. I would rate it about 9.5 out of 10. Bolt locks up tight. Still has the original cleaning rod. It is not import marked. I have disassembled this rifle and found it very clean with no rust in the hidden areas.

The sling is original and in excellent condition. The bayonet is in excellent condition and has the number matching scabbard with the leather frog.

Should be a good shooter with the proper ammo. The standard 8mm military surplus ammo and most new manufactured ammo you find on the market will work fine. I wouldn't try any hot high pressure loads in it. The pictures will tell you more.

This would be great for any Mauser variant collector.  

This gun must be shipped to a FFL or C&R holder or can purchased in person.
