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.

    I was searching on Persian Mausers and came across these photos shorlty after I was searching the Samco site. This is a great looking rifle. I'm just getting started with collecting some military bolt action rifles and need to have a Mauser or two in the collection. Now I need to have a Persian as well.

    Nice pix. I bought one from Samco - advertised as excellent condx, no bluing. It is in excellent condx AND it had bluing. Mine is a shooter. Having lots of trouble trying to zero at 100M. Gunsmith installing "tall sight" next week. Would love to have an "unissued" Persian rifle.
