Samco has Yugo 24/47's in excellent condition for $219. They also have a Swede M38 for $289. and an Oviedo short Spanish Mauser with a turned down bolt in .308 for $169. I'll be able to afford one next month, but I'm torn. I really like the idea of a short Mauser. I've been wanting a Swede, but ammunition is the most costly of the three I named. The Yugo is a straight bolt, but beautiful and Samco has 8mm Mauser at a really good price. I mention the Spanish Mauser almost as an afterthought, but it's chambered in .308 and it's the cheapest of the bunch. There's a fourth alternative, a bent bolt 24/47, but it's not in nearly as nice condition as the straight bolt Yugo. What do you guys think?
