Well, some were sold to Iraq for one.
And others were made in obscure factories and the factory codes are very rarely seen.
Some Yugo rifles were built off of German 98ís and those are starting to gain a following.

And I suppose that since Yugoslavia doesnít even exist any longer may be a little historical...


Again, your gun, but I will never understand that in this day and age people are still hacking up military guns when there are far superior and less costly commercial rifles available at any gunshop or on most ever local online trader.

You need to work on that.

The correct thing to do would have been to simply admit that you, the great mentiat that you try to appear to be, simply didn't understand a very simple paragraph and let it go. You didn't have to play the ******* card. We could have had a good chat.

Threats? That's rich.

Live long and prosper, sir!

I can’t say I’ve read any other of your posts past the ones in this thread.

Don’t be sorry. Your opinion is what it is.

I appreciate being included in the world class category. I do try.

Sadly I can only only put you in the common category.

Next beer is on me.

I only have one Mauser. A family hand-me-down Brazilian 7mm that is now a scout rifle. After having not been fired in 30 or 40 years it will now get a second life, but there's no free lunch. I feel like Trump surrounded by the media with all the hate I've been getting for destroying a piece of history...

I now have a second Mauser, also in 7mm, this one a Spanish 1926 model. Some joker put the bolt together wrong, and it wouldn't go on safe so I got it for a good deal... Starting to love the 7mm Mauser round. Doesn't beat you up, yet it's still a good shooting , and plenty strong round. Haven't had this one to the range yet though.

I have a 1942 K-98 that I have shot and hit targets at 300 yards. My question for the experts: Is there a non original scope in the $300 range that I can put on this mauser without altering or drilling? I would like to hunt pigs in limited visibility and hence the need for the scope. Has anyone had any luck with finding a Bipod that will work on a K-98 ?

The only thing I can think of that won't permanently change the gun is the scout scope mounts that you pin in place of the rear sight. Then you can always replace the sight if you want to. Brass Stacker, and others make them. I'm making one of my own from an old section of picatinny rail for my Spanish Mauser so I can fit it with a red dot. I don't want to permanently alter it like I did the Brazilian Mauser. I'm doing one for an M44 too.

Brass Stackers scout mount replaces a pin on rear sight but you keep the rear sight functional. You can see and use it under the scout scope. I have one on my sks and on my 6.5 swede.

Just got my Spanish Mauser back from the gunsmith. Too dark to take a nice photo outside, so here is the "gun on the floor" shot. Had him mill the rear sight base flat, and groove it on the sides to accept a Sig Romeo 5. Did a M44 Mosin like that too for me. My boy will probably get that one.

I have a 6.5 by the back door. I have hunted deer with it, killed pig and whatever. The one by the back door is sporterized. The two in the garage are not. that round is fantastic. The rifle not so bad. If you had to have one rifle, this would not be a bad choice

My son said he was looking for some 30-06 dies. I asked where he got a 30-06. reply: From you, remember the 30-06 mauser that you gave me? I drilled it and mounted a scope on it. Oh well. There are still unaltered mausers out there. I started on one of the actions in the barn, soon I'll have a 308

At least he'll be shooting it, rather than it sitting in a safe doing nothing.

All I have to say is never sell mausers! I had a ‘44 German that I got for $260 (yes I know y’all probably don’t believe me but it’s true) at a gun show 10 years ago, and like an idiot I sold it for $300 when I was hard up for cash...totally regret it it was such a good shooter too!

In 1974 I remember seeing a barrel of Mausers in a gun shop with a sign over it saying “Your choice, $12.00”

Man, a lil off topic but two of the best if not best gun buys I made were around 10 years ago at Big 5: my K-98 for around $500 and my Rossi 92 lever action for around $550 Fazul...

I picked up an ugly Mauser. 8mm. Rebarreled and shoots ok but they wanted a different stock. So the one they put on had the bolt hit the cheek weld. They cut and modified the stock for a groove to allow the bolt to rack. Then they put a scope on. Straight bolt hit so they bent the bolt handle/charging handle. Still wouldn’t pass so they ground it down on a bench grinder. Numbers destroyed on everything and no markings at all on the barrel. Was $100. 6” groups at 100 yards standing with factory loads. Damn it’s ugly. Its the exact opposite of my m24/47 with matching everything in fantastic condition. That one , with a spam can of ammo cost me $250 12 years ago.

Yes I have Mausers.... many, many, many Mausers. I recently had a extra 1896 Sweed on the table for sale from 1914. A person picked it up and immediately started talking how it would make a great truck gun as soon as he could cut off all the old useless military crap and mount a scope on it. I was asking $450 for it. I told him to put it down and go buy a regular commercial hunting rifle on the next table over for $100 less. He got rather upset over that and stormed off. I pulled that rifle off the table and put it back into the safe. I guess some people feel the need to take a hacksaw to a 100 year old collectors piece and make it "useful" again. My 2 cents worth, thank you.
