Default Any Mauser guys here?

I picked up a bunch of ammo today and got a Russian Capture K98 (eagles are still on it) and a yugo 44 K98 thrown in on the deal.
Yugo has one of those rear sight rail replacements and a scout scope on it (reversable) but otherwise they are unmolested.

I'm not a "markings guy" I know enough about most guns to recognize "I think that's a rare one, let me look it up" and go from there (thank you smart phones) and I'm having trouble pricing them. (I am a scout rifle fan And would like to shoot the 44, but with my spine I doubt I'll manage a magazine.) I've found very little in Russian captures that's recent, and pretty much every thing on Yugo's is the 48, not the 44.

The pages I've found to Russian capture markings are mostly dead links, so I'd appreciate a lead on that also.

Thank you.

Good luck. The Nazi K98k is the most faked gun on the planet, you’ll need to get it into the hands of an expert to figure it all out and be certain.

Meh, worst case they are functional firearms in very good shape and I have nothing in em. (I really just wanted the black tip)

Just looking to checkout markings on the Russian and to see if a 44 should be treated like a 48 value wise.

Also....what the heck is a yugo M44? That’s a re-arsenaled Mosin, in my understanding.

Do you mean a 98/48, the captured German rifle that was scrubbed and remarked as a Yugo? They are marked with preduzece 44, the factory that did it.

Yea, that. Sorry I'm about to probably crash and sleep for 12-20 hiurs, for some reason was looking for 44 vs 48.

They say the Russians captured k98s were so well taking care of by the Russians that 375% of them are still around today.

If you were still in Louisiana, I work a deal with you if you wanted to let them go.

Why would people fake markings that would lessen the value?

I have a RC K98, has the waffenampt (sp) stamps and eagles. Its a great shooter but it has its components electro penciled which I hear denotes that its a RC. There is a great Mauser forum online, google it and join them. There are some experts on that forum that can answer
all your questions, you will probably need to upload some pics.

Let me think about an offer and I will PM you. I start my new job May 1 so, I have to hang on to my liquid assets at this moment. Thanks Nomad.

Honestly - no.


I would say this title goes to the "Pistole 08", aka "Luger" or "Parabellum".

Correct on the factory 44.
(I also have a 124)


The Yugos sell typically for $350 around here but the prices have been climbing.
I did sell a 44 example last year that somehow didn't get scrubbed and recrested for $800.
Nice RC's are about $5-600 here depending on the amount of Russian influence with total beaters being $350.

I have two vz. 24's. Bought them, stuck them both into black plastic stocks and burned the wood. Both great rifles. Was thinking about getting the bolts cut so I could mount scopes but other projects came up. I need to get those two out and clean them, I think. Been years.

I have a JC Higgins Model 51, 30-06. Great rifles. Made by FN in Belgium for High Standard I believe who contracted to JC Higgins and Sears. Chrome barrels. You can never shoot them out. Even today they are low cost and low interest. They also shoot MOA.

I have two Mausers. Both are WWII era rifles. One was butchered at some point by an "not-so good" gunsmith. But I picked that up for $25 back in the late 60s.

The other one is pretty much stock. Not all of the parts have matching serial numbers though but it was kept stock. I love shooting that rifle. As best we can tell, it was built circa 1938 to 1942. It has the eagle stamps on it. It's accurate as hell. There is information on the web (but I forget where at the moment) that will allow you to find the year when it was made and which even the factory that made it.

But it's a shooter and gets used more than even my M1A. It's a "fun" rifle to shoot. Surplus ammo was, maybe still is, easy to find. I haven't bought any recently. But I stockpiled a lot of it and am working my way through it. Funny, I don't use as much with it at the range as I do with more modern SA rifles.

I have used it for local (old) military rifles matches and shoot against Springfields, a few Enfields and such. I do quite well.

Love mausers! I have more than one. I've got a yugo in the garage which throws the projectiles everywhere but straight. I bought a new barrel for it. I also have a 308 bull barrel? It has been sporterized so no collector value. 8mm is a very nice round. I'll make a decision soon. I also have a '93 which has been acting up. I'll work with it a while if not? Mausers are great.

My son has the family Mauser. It was sent home from Germany by my father's brother and my father sportisered the stock. It shoots min of angle at 100 yards. My father put on a nice peap site but my son wanted a scope so I had the already bent bolt bent a little more so it would clear the scope with high rings. The rifle has minimal value because of the sportisering but it is a family heirloom.

I have a Turkish Mauser and a sporterized Mauser rechambered in 30-06 that my dad gave me. I like them well enough, but I really want an SS issued Totenkopf marked Mauser, but they are rare and expensive. I saw one at a gun shop when I was a kid and I have wanted one ever since.
