Default My constantly expanding Mauser collection

Got my C&R a few months ago and growing my collection. Currently, I own a Persian M98/29, Bolt Mismatch K98k, Persian Model 30, and Persian Model 1949.

I'm very inexperienced as a photographer so any feedback about photographing firearms would be great! I live in an apartment, so taking pictures outside isn't really an option

Thanks for the advice. I'll try that for the next batch of photos. Here's the Model 30 crest:

Model 30 vs Model 49:

I've always thought the Czech-made mausers had nicer crests. The Iranian-made Model 49 lion kinda looks like the Cowardly Lion. The amount of detail in the Czech-made mausers is stunning.
K98k crest:

I'm also on the market for an all matching VZ-24, preferably a Persian one so if you know of one, send them my way.

Very nice. Consider adding a Swede to that Mauser collection.
