Default Mauser

with the mosin & SKS frenzy going on do not overlook all the nice serb M 48 and M 24-47s on the surplus market. that will for sure dry up . a never sold surplus rifle and a gun show- pawn shop rifle are not the same experience.

well now the m-48 is the final design of the Mauser platform. it was not made under war time stress in labor or materials. i have never herd one complaint in workmanship and materials. the tooling is German or FN. i think my 1950 first series all machined M-48 is better than your historic war time or capture K 98k.
i would not defend my position except you did get a little uppity about your sacred other Mausers. i got one Mauser just to say i have one and like it. i like my Mosins much better though.

I agree. Mausers are excellent rifles. I have one made in Transylvania. I want to cast a silver bullet for it... ;-)

you can get a nice Mauser m- 48 at big 5 for 299 all day long. on sale i got mine for 240 bucks.all matching, nice wood and metal. i shot it and it is a nice rifle.
on black friday you might get one for less than 240. . some people like the pre war serb M 24-47 better. if you just want a well made shooter you cant go wrong with a M-48 Mauser.

Good place to start at 7.62X39. Very good and detailed book on the Serb Mausers.

http://www.amazon.com/Serbian-Yugosl.../dp/1882391357

I got nothing but good things to say on the m48s and m24/47. Excellent built rifles and tack drivers. For their price can't go wrong.

my knowledge about collecting surplus rifles is TULA or IZZY ?. that is about it. i never get interested in stamping or ser #. I was at a turners and the guy showed me a real beautiful Mauser. all i had at that time was about 5 Mosins and a SKS. looking at that Mauser got the wheels turning. so when i saw a M-48 for 240 bucks at BIG 5 i jumped on it. wonderful example of a post war Mauser. if a nice Russian capture Mauser comes along the way i might buy it. that will be the total of my Mauser collecting.if i can't shoot it i do not want it.

7.62x63mmUS asked where I found the info about my 24/47.

I made a post a couple years ago with all the info in it, but I failed to locate it for you. I got two sites from my bookmarks, and I referred also to the Mauser Rifles of the World book.

If I find the post, I'll PM you with it.
