Default Mauser Help??

Could anybody help me identify these Mausers? If I were to get one, what one should it be? I think their both k98's in 8mm.. But they have some slight differences? (Yes, I know what ones a M1917)

top mauser looks like a yugo m 48 ,the mauser below it looks like a k98. if you can only get one then get the middle one if its a k 98. As far as deciding which one to purchase check the bore on both of them . I would choose the rifle with the best bore and least amount of wear and tear. If they will give you a good deal buy them both. My k 98 is my favorite rifle.

+1. The top looks like a pretty typical M-48 Yugo. The middle looks like a German K98k of WWII vintage. Not much difference between the two. The M-48 will have almost all milled parts. The K98k will have some steel stampings. The Yugos are generally better finished as they were post war manufactured so they took fewer short cuts.

The Yugos also used the barrel support ring on the bayonet where the Germans did not.

I just purchased a m 48 and m24/47 at big 5 for 199.00 each at big 5 two months ago. the m 24/47 had matching serial numbers and the entire rifle looked brand new. The m48 had a good bore but the stock had some dings and scratches on it. I refinished the stock on the m 48 and it turned out nice.

Matching numbers, bore condition, check the bolt face also. Sometimes the pin hole will be enlarged if the chamber is out of spec and gases have eroded it.
