Of all my non-USA mil surp rifles, I have to say that the Mausers are the most fun to shoot and frankly, the most well put together. Here's a short video I made on an M48 Mauser. I'd love to know this rifle's story, even has some Arabic on the butt stock.

Posts some pics of the top of the action, bottom metal, and carvings. I'm sure I can help. Also the left side of the receiver. I've got a bunch of chargers if you need some.

Thanks, bro. I posted pics to another forum and the Mauser experts told me it is, definitely, a M48 one of the M48BO:1956-1965*- The "bo" stands for "bez oznake" and translates roughly as "unmarked" or "without markings." These were identical to and manufactured concurrent with the crested M48B but were not stamped with any national or manufacturer's markings.

Now about those chargers....

:)

Yes the BO was an export to sometimes questionable places. The carvings would narrow it down. Pics before chargers!!

I like the 24/47 better. The M48 is not quite as accurate. I have only 1 now. A 1.TRZ. Sold the M48 a few years ago. This is a czech M98, 1945 DOU. Pure sexy.

I know all I need to know about it...thanks anyway.

Besides, who needs chargers when they are so easy to load to begin with?
:p

Trench art is not that common. On Yugo Mausers In the Serbian/Croation conflict they really tell allot about the soldier. I was interested because it it such a vital part of modern history and I am curious about any art on the rifles.
