M24/47 Yugo

It's worth noting that the Yugoslavian arsenals, prepping the rifles for a half-century of storage, applied Cosmoline with shocking generosity. You should have your firearms inspected and serviced by a qualified gunsmith. Your last photo shows what looks to be the remnants of the scrubbed original sidewall markings. Depending on the condition of the barrel when rifles reached Yugoslavia, they may have been switched out for a domestically produced M48 barrel. Original bayonets were also converted to fit the new barrels.

The M48 with all milled parts, the M48A with the only change a stamped floor plate and considered the best of the breed wait for it and the M48B a rifle made strictly for export and incorporating a greater number of stamped parts. Thank you for the additional photos, very nice! A brand new Mauser action and stock in a lighter, more maneuverable version chambered for one of the classic small deer cartridges. I use it for cleaning black powder in my cowboy action guns. It and a proper ste of screwdrivers is all the tools you need. Cosmoline is not in spellcheck btw.

Zastava M48 Mauser: MILSURP Gem

Take 20% off with our code — or and save twice that amount. A very small number had a 6 inches 0. Paul Mauser's designs were some of the most influential and lasting contributions to firearms development in the late 19th and early 20th century, and indeed, many of these contributions live on today in modern hunting and target rifles. I concede that the Czech Mausers, built under Czech supervision as opposed to Nazi occupiers are superior but then, they were generally superior to most any other Mausers. Fortunately, Yugoslavian guns and Yugoslavian cars are two different animals. The bolt handle is curved at approximately an 45-degree angle, unlike the K98k, which is turned down at an angle sharp enough to prompt the need for a cutout in the stock to accommodate it.

It must be remembered that both the Nazis and Partizans were busy trying to blow up the arms building works! Add to that one item, a case trimmer.

Another interesting feature of the action is the ability to decock the action without dry-firing the weapon. The excellent condition, beautiful stock and, above all, the Mauser 98 action, make it a damned fine specimen. To cut costs, the M48A was developed, which substituted stamped steel for the magazine floor plate.

Bolt is correct for the Yugo as identified by the stamping shown on the knob. The last rifles were produced in 1964. Especially if yours is a straight M48, I believe most of them were issued and saw a lot of hard use. We cleaned the Cosmoline off and took it to the range. One of the most recognizable features of the Mauser action is the three-position safety at the rear of the bolt. As an everyday shooter, only the trigger was unacceptable. I doubt there is much difference between them.

Armed (But Not Dangerous): The Last Mauser: The Yugoslavian M48

A buddy sold me a case of original, corrosive ammo, and I took it out to function-test the rifle. So now unless it is already screwed up I will not change them. It would be most unusual for a country that was making bolt action rifles to spend money to acquire teak stocks for them. Luckily for your wallet, many countries copied Mauser's 1898 design making a Mauser experience much more affordable. The reason for the conversion is logistical. Any constructive criticsm or advice is welcome.
