Mausers from around the world.

Mausers, Mausers, and more Mausers! All of the rifles shown in the albums within are based off the tried and true Mauser 98 action... with the exception of the Swede. But, hey, they're all awesome rifles!

Argentine M1909... Engineer carbine?

This rifle was most certainly an M1909 long rifle at one point and it's most certainly not an M1909 Carbine. It looks a bit like an Engineer (aka Mountain) Carbine, but there are a few things than make me wonder if some Bubba didn't hack down a M1909 Long Rifle to make it look like one of the more rare Engineer carbines: the muzzle looks funny to me; much shorter beyond the front sight base than others I've seen and there's no beveling around the outside diameter... almost like someone hack it? Regardless, this is one heckuva shooter... it handles well and hits everything I'm aiming at. Definitely a nice little rifle. Caliber 7.65 Argentine.

Czechoslovakian Mauser 98/22

This is run-of-the mill Czech 98/22. The Czechs were pretty famous for making many fine Mauser-style rifles before WW2, and this BRNO example is definitely such an example. Caliber 8mm Mauser.

Czechoslovakian Mauser VZ24

This is another BRNO-built VZ24 rifle. This one is all matching, the bore still has some nice shine to it, and all of the metal parts still have quite a bit of their original finish. This rifle is clearly not a rework of any sort and would easily be an exceptionally nice collector's piece... were it not for the hole that was punched through the stock on the left side - and there's now a crack extending all the way up to the wrist. It's a shame, too, since the stock is stamped matching. I'm not sure what the hole is from... doesn't look to be a drilled hole and it's clearly not from any sort of obvious battlefield experience... looks almost like someone tried to punch a hole through the stock for some stupid reason. It's still a nice looking rifle, though.

German Mauser Gewehr 98

This is a German Gewehr 98 Mauser bolt-action infantry rifle built by Danzig in 1917 with 1920 Reichswehr acceptance-date stamped at top of receiver. (The receiver has been scrubbed, but both stamps are faintly visible.) This rifle is a Spanish Civil War rework (bold flaming-bomb enclosing MP8 cartouche on right side of stock attests to its Spanish Civil War heritage), updated with tangent rear-sight proofed S/42G. This rifle is definitely a mixmaster (all parts mismatched). The bore is still pretty strong, though it is somewhat dark. Caliber 7.92x57 Mauser.

Model 98/29 Persian Mauser

Persian Mauser, infantry long rifle, manufactured by BRNO (Czechoslovakia). This particular rifle is a pretty standard example of the type. Chambered in 7.92mm Mauser, it’s all matching and looks like it was made yesterday. The action is buttery smooth, the trigger pull is a little heavy (but has nice clean break), the bore is near-perfect, and the Farsi markings definitely stand out. My Farsi is a little rusty, but the inscriptions on the left side of the receiver wall should read “Rifle Model 1309 Brno Arms Factory" (1930 on the Western calendar is 1309 on the Persian calendar) with a manufacture date of 1317 (or 1938 on the Western calendar) and the stamp below the serial number on the stock should read “On Foot” or “For Foot” (or something along those lines) to denote infantry issuance.

Model 98/29 Persian Mauser Long Rifle

This Persian Mauser M98/29 was manufactured by the BRNO Arms Factory in Czechoslovakia in 1930 (1309 on the Persian calendar) under Persian contract. These rifles were selected as the standard weapon of the Persian Army and were renown for their accuracy. They were also favored by the Persian Palace Guards for ceremonial activities. The high quality of the Persian Mauser has made it the epitome of pre-WW2 rifle design -- this rifle exemplifies the lost art of rifle craftsmanship. Caliber 8mm Mauser.

S&K scout mount for Swede M96

Pretty straight forward... this handy scout mount simply replaces the rear sight on the Swedish M96 Mauser, without the need for any permanent alteration. Sweet!

Swedish Mauser M96 Target

This is a standard 1915 Carl Gustaf M96 Mauser (cal. 6.5x55 Swede) that was later equipped with an Elit rear peep sight and Kornring front sight. Various apertures can easily and quickly be changed by simply unscrewing the backside of the front sight and inserting the proper aperture. Target rifles such as these were used by civilians for match shooting, though they'd certainly work in a pinch if the military needed them. The stock is a well-figured piece of walnut -- definitely a looker.

Swedish Mauser M96-38B

This is a Swedish Mauser M/96-38B, originally maunfactured by Carl Gustaf in 1902, cal. 6.5x55mm Swedish. Note the stock disc and range plate on the butt.

Swedish Mauser M96B

This is a great looking M96B Swedish Mauser, manufactured by the Carl Gustaf factory in 1915. Overall this rifle is in awesome condition -- near perfect blueing, the wood is nearly free of dings/scratches, and it's 100% matching. The only drawback is the bore -- as indicated by the stock disc (the triangle above the 3), the bore is somewhat worn. It's pretty dark, but the lands are still very sharp and bright. Definitely a great rifle for any collection! The muzzle brake/flash hider is an American aftermarket part. Caliber 6.5x55 Swedish Mauser.

Swedish Mauser M96B 1908

This M96B was manufactured by the Carl Gustaf factory in 1908. I acquired this rifle in a trade and am overall pretty happy with it, though the stock does seem to have been refinished by someone at some point in time. The bore is a bit on the dark side (as the stock disk will attest), but it's still quite serviceable and will last the rest of my lifetime (with all luck). Aside from that, though, this mostly-matching example is in pretty great condition. Caliber 6.5x55 Swedish Mauser.

Yugoslavian Mauser K98 rework

This rifle started life as a German issued K98. After WW2, the Yugoslavian goverment reworked many of these former-German rifles, often removing all the manufacturer's original stamps. This rifle retains a few of the original German Waffenampts (see sear) and the "Mod. 98" along the left side of the receiver, but the original German manufacturer code and date of production have been scrubbed and replaced with the post-war Yugoslavian crest. This rifle also sports a laminated stock. Caliber 8mm Mauser.

Yugoslavian Mauser M24/47

This is a pretty standard Yugo M24/47. Many of the original Model 24 Mausers were updated/refurbed in 1947 to meet the then-current needs of the post-war Yugoslavian government. Caliber 8mm Mauser.

Yugoslavian Mauser M48

Right after WW2, Tito's government began producing their own version of the famed K98. While similar in appearance to the K98, the M48 is actually an intermediate length action; K98 and M48 bolts are not interchangeable. This rifle is fitted with an Iron-Elite cantilever scope mount and a Cabela's Pine Ridge 4-10x scope. Caliber 8mm Mauser.

Yugoslavian Mauser M48BO

The M48BO (BO - "bez oznake", meaning "without markings") was pretty much the same rifle as the M48. These particular rifles were intended for export, a practice that was frowned upon by Tito's Soviet "ally." The manufacturer markings typically found on the other M48s were not present on the BO (hence the designation "without markings") in order to "hide" the rifle's true origins. Yeah, I'm sure the Soviets wouldn't have been able to figure that one out. Caliber 8mm Mauser.
