Default Not your average Yugo Mauser

Saw this posted on another forum from a local seller and stand up guy that I've purchased from before. First thought was "huh, never heard of that" second thought was "I'll take it"

It has a funky metal tack on the grip and some white paint/chalk on the crest that I'm working on but I do love me the wood grain in these Yugo made rifles.

While I was researching this one and before I picked it up, I learned about the Syrian variant. Lo and behold the next day I walked in to my LGS and snagged one. It is still in the "30 day" period for consignment before I can take it home but it is just as nice or nicer than this one so they should make a nice pair.

Why is it not average? Looks like a m48

Love that elm stock. That one is particularly nice. Hashemite crest is OK too.

That is a cool looking crest! Is the magazine floor plate stamped sheet metal?

Thats an Iraqi crest. Not syrian. Probably a Fed Ordinance import rifle. The Syrians had a different crest on their M48 contract rifles.

Started its life as an unmarked, no crest, M48.

Nice!

Yes, what I meant to say was, after I locked up this Iraqi, I was researching them and learned about the Syrian, went into LGS next day and found a Syrian.

So previously I had no idea about these variants and then within about a 3-4 day period I've got one of each. Kinda funny how that works sometimes.

These are truly an amazing value. I still have a few Yugo crested NIB's.



And one I put three 200g SMK's through using the G43 sight hood improved the front sight picture.

Nice catch you made there.

Very nice finds.

I glommed a Hashemite crest M48 years back and then a few years later found a Syrian M48. They are interesting Mausers.

Nice one Mustang

Had a chance to visit the Syrian today, should be picking it up next week. It is all matching, no cracks, nice crest.

My first ever C&R I purchased when I turned 18 in 1993 was a Yugo

Still have it, looks to be unissued and came with all the accessories.

Maybe not my cup of tea...but, I'm happy that there are people like you that take pride in collecting them and are taking good care of them.

History is cool

Congrats on two cool finds. Looking forward to seeing the other rifle once you can take it home.
