    Persian Beauty

    Well, Gentlemen, here one of my favourite rifles.
    I wanted to go shoot her today, but yesterday I had a very long evening with friends, baking a zillion pizzas in my wood oven, so today was not really the best day to get out and shoot....
    Too tired.
    So, once I finished the necessary chores to clean up home, the dishes etc., I took her out and made a few pictures.
    If I'm not gonna shoot her, at least let me touch her a bit.
    Here she is.
    Matching in all numbered parts: barrel, bolt, stock.
    The rifling is as new, the bolt tight and precise as can be. I doubt this baby shot more than a couple hundred rounds in all her life.
    The front sight is just too short to shoot well at 200 meters. At 100 I can aim at the bottom of the black target and hit the bullseye, but at 200 I have to aim below the target, so I added (just as an experiment) a short pole, one mm longer.
    This way I had very good results.
    I never shot it again after that time, but tomorrow......

    Very nice. I have not yet found a Persian Mauser that fit my bank account or if not that, my condition requirements. I almost bought one dirt cheap but I decided that even with my patience and persistence, I wasn't going to bring that one back.

    Strangely enough, the Persians are not too expensive here (considering our price levels).
    Now there is a very nice one, all matching and in similar conditions as mine, including bayonet, at 750€.
    I paid 550, found another one a few weeks later for 450 and got a friend to buy it.
    Strange market on those ones, really.

    From what I can see, they are among the highest priced Mausers here in the US. Not counting the crazy prices paid for K98icon bring backs. $700 seems to be the norm and for my purposes of collecting those used in the wars, I can't really justify it. It might be because they are nearly all in very nice shape also. I don't know.

    I can understand you.
    Today I'll go see, and maybe buy, a Swissicon K31.
    It took me a lot of time to decide myself for this rifle, since Switzerland was neutral and these rifles have seen no action.
    Same went for the Carl Gustafs.
    But I also like the mechanics and the high quality, so, someday, I just stepped over this line.
    The Persian Mauser is such a beauty, believe me.
    I'm pretty sure you'd forgive her her "shortcoming".

    I have many rifles from neutral countries, so it's not that anymore. When I first started collecting I didn't buy them although I had a Swedishicon 96 before I started collecting. I passed on the K31icon for that reason when they were dirt cheap. But as I found things at good prices I bought them anyway. I think a Chileanicon mauser was the first. I now have several South American rifles and a few others that were not from those involved in active fighting in the two big ones. The K31 however I decided I needed for my displays. They did not declare war on anyone but they did manage to survive without being invaded and this rifle and their way of thinking is why. It would have been too costly to invade and the trade off of having a neutral nation in that location made it more attractive to leave as is.



    I expect I will get a Persian rifle at some point, I have the bayonet already, but it has to be on my financial terms and that is what I have not found yet.

    Nice one too.
    I must say I really love Mausers. All of them.
    Expensive passion, almost like women;-)

    The Persian Mausers have to be considered the top of the mass gun makers craftsmanship. Out of all the Mausers I have shot over the years the Persian just not only looks the best but it also feels better in most cases. Might just be a psychological thing but it sure seems to be right when you fire it.

    They are really very well done.
    I've seen only 4 in my life and used two, but they are all extremely accurate and mechanically great.
    The action is really tight. Smooth, but tight.
    I tried to load my dummy rounds (fired in my K98icon), but they have to be forced with great determination into the chamber.
    The Persian has such a tight chamber that it only accepts her own brass.
    Since I got first and second shot brass from the seller, I still don't know how she'll behave with factory new brass.

    Mtoms, nice place for shooting a great rifle. I'd like to be allowed to shoot into the woods. Enjoy your czech!
