    It was made in Secret work shop 124: Yugoslavian M24/47

    Yeah yeah okay I bit.. I just had to know... so I asked



    Me: What does made in secret work shop 124 mean?



    Seller Answer: That is what we found where it was made from the stamps on the rifle.must have been some secret arsenal that was not supposed to exist.

    You be the judge...

    According to Branko Bogdanovic's book Serbian and Yugoslav Mauser rifles, of which I have a copy and if I have understood it correctly, the marking stands for "Military Workshop Number 124". According to the book the reason that the location of many of the Yugoslav workshops, maintenance plants and factories that had a numeric code is not known is because the list of the manufacturer's codes no-longer exist.

    In all fairness, it isn't a usual marking for these.

    Perhaps I can shine some light on this a little. First off it is only a sales gimmick and about as secret as McDonald's secret sauce. My step dad is from Yugoslaviaicon. I have poked and prodded him endlessly for two decades or more about Mauser stuff and related things. He had a 24/47 issued to him when he was in the JNA in the early 1980s. Him and I have had this conversation before about 24/47 and m48 Mauser markings.
    The most common stamp is Enterprise 44 as we know. At some point Enterprise 44 started producing the m48 mauser and handed off the conversions and updates of old M24s and k98s to smaller “work shops” to focus on making the m48s, tt33s etc. There were probably a dozen or so smaller places that had the ability to overhaul or update mausers. Some of them were not the best suited to preform the work and the quality was rather poor.
    When this particular mauser was a 24, it had in Cyrillic FN herstal Belgiumicon stamped on the receiver. When it was updated to the M24/47 pattern that stamp was removed and restamped with the depot or workshop that preformed the updated. Like most eastern block countries all factories were given a number designation. All factories were state owned so it wasnt like a factory had a brand name. That mauser was updated at Work shop 124, no more, no less. I have seen a number of different marking that were workshop number such and such.
    I really love the brown painted stock and wood filler where the new serial number has applied.
