Here is a specimen of the last military Mauser to be issued, the Yugoslavian M48, A variant. We estimate this specimen was manufactured in 1953; serial number is Greek Pi prefix, but we are not privy to serialization on these mausers. The A variants were discontinued in 1956, so all of them are C&R eligible. The BO variant does not bear any military crest. Manufacturer was Preduzece 44 / Zastava factory of Kragujevac, Serbia, then in Communist Yugoslavia. Type is 1898 Mauser with intermediate length receiver. Importer on this specimen was Century Arms, marked on the forward right side of its barrel. Production equipment was from FN in Belgium. Construction is milled steel barrel, receiver, and bolt, with stamped steel upper barrel band, magazine floorplate, butt plate, and trigger guard. Stock is European Walnut. Chambering is 8mm Mauser caliber, 7.92x57, still in production throughout the world. Barrel is 23 1/2 inch 1:9.5 right hand rifling. Yugoslavian Army issue bayonet and scabbard is included. Sights are dovetailed banded blade front, with 2000 meter calibrated military rear. Magazine is internal box type 4 round, total loaded capacity of 4 + 1 rounds. Safety is traditional Mauser type, on top of the bolt cover. Trigger is two stage feel, 7 pound vicinity with moderate felt creep and overtravel. Weight empty is 8 pounds 11 ounces, with center of gravity at the breech face or chamber mouth. Floorplate, bolt, stock cartouche, and receiver numbers are all matching. Surface detractions are only moderate on this specimen. Original bluing is quite strong, but with moderate edge whitening and freckling. Stock is original oil finish. There are no cracks in the walnut. We rate this M48 as Very Good, 70 to 75 percent vicinity by our estimate, but photos ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. Bore shows extensive etchy texture in the rifling grooves, but lands are strong throughout with no pits in them. Chamber, magazine, and mechanism are all bright and clean. One often sees these rifles priced at $500 apiece or more. We’re offering the M48 in the photos, however, for only $ 289.00.
