This Persian Mauser M98/29 was manufactured by the BRNO Arms Factory in Czechoslovakia during the 1930s under Persian contract. These rifles were selected as the standard weapon of the Persian Army and were reknown 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.
