    the yugo mauser question

    Its well known the ruling government had the basic rifle/carbine design hammered out for them in 1924 by one of the best companies making mausers outside of Germanyicon.

    Now, in 1947 yugosclavia did the whole rearm program, and the guns were repaired and given new parts as needed. making the 24/47 nomenclature.

    In 1948 they started making the entire rifle to the same dimensions as the 24/47


    So why does everyone insist on calling the model 48 an entirely new and final production version of the mauser rifle

    It is a new model for the Yugoslavs. Featured a bent bolt (M24 and M24/47s didn't), sight hood (M24s didn't), and the later ones started going for stamped parts instead of milled.

    There was countries adopting new models of Mausers after that point as well such as the Brazilianicon M954. I personally wouldn't say when the final Mauser was adopted, as there is always some new variation that someone else could pull out.

    The yugos had several mausers with difference designations, all of them being in K98icon configuration with and with out minor variations. The numbers just specify which Mauser it is between the handful of different ones they had on hand. Look at the tag on the side of a crate of yugo 8mm ammo, it will says in serbian script: Ammo for M24, M24/47, M48, m48A, M52C, M63. all of these are pretty much k98s, the exception being the m63 which is just a really short mauser.

    The bolts are shorter than the K98icon.

    Primarily because the M48 took enough notes from the German K98kicon design that it was considered a separate model due to product improvements, namely the bent bolt handle and changing the stock configuration to mirror the K98k stock. Differences then increased further when the Yugoslavian government tried to make the design less expensive to produce by replacing many of its milled parts with stamped parts (M48A, M48B, M48BO).

    I bought my Yugoicon M48Bo some years back and the stock wasn't finish sanded like many military Mausers. All milled parts and mint condition barrel. Tried some Sellier & Bellot Czechicon 8mm mauser with the 196 grain bullet. Shot way high at 100 yds. Evidently the sights were configured for a 150 or so grain bullet. Mauser stocks as used by the Swedishicon could vary with different types of wood. Two I have are walnut. One is a blonde wood maybe beech or birch. The remaining two are maybe elm and my M38 is also possibly elm. My Persian 98/29 long rifle is a beautiful piece of what looks like european walnut, they really did themselves proud on that stock.

    The sights are not for a 150 grain bullet , just the Yugoicon version of the sS 198 .
