The M48 Mauser is a post World War II Yugoslavian version of the Belgian Fabrique Nationale designed Mauser Model 1924 short rifle which was produced under contract by the "Kingdom of Yugoslavia" beginning in 1928 and ending with the Nazi occupation in 1941. After World War II, the Yugoslavs took this design and incorporated modifications based upon Germany's Mauser Karabiner 98k. Although similar in general appearance to that of the German rifle, many of the parts of these two rifles are not interchangeable, especially the bolt and related action parts. The main difference between the M48 and the K98k is that the M48 uses an intermediate-length receiver. They are usually easily identified by the top handguard, which extends behind the rear sight and ends just in front of the receiver ring, although this feature exists on other models as well.

Im very pleased with my purchase. Thanks for the super service,Robert. I will buy from your store again,for sure. My son loves his yugo..Have a great year.
Received my 1944 Mauser a couple of weeks ago, and have been doing some work on it sporadically since. The stock was just a bit rough, so I did a real light sand and put a satin finish on it. The bore was o.k., but after some JB bore compound and JB bore bright, it looks fantastic. I am a retired old geezer, so Things like this give me something to occupy my time. I got out this morning with three of my new "toys" and did a little shooting. 20 rds through the Mauser, and not one little problem. Very accurate and powerful even with my failing eyesight I used surplus ammo on stripper clips, but hand fed as the clips were a pain for me. The internal mag is so sweet they almost fall into place with hardly any pressure at all. The only minor complaint I have is with the safety knob. It is very hard to move for me. But with my old arthritic fingers it is understandible. All in all a very outstanding piece of history. This was my third firearm from Impact, and I just ordered last night my Mosin Nagant sniper. Can't wait to get that in my hands. Impact has been terrific considering the crazy and busy times they are going through As the title says, I am a well pleased customer. Thank you IMPACT!! Jim
I don't think the one I received has ever been fired. It did come with a straight handled bolt though, and not the curved as shown in the picture. It still works, but it was not as shown. Other than that it is a nice rifle for the money.
The surplus "Yugo" Mausers have been selling off like hotcakes ever since the cache reached U.S. soil for good reason, they have been well cared for and these are among the best quality Mausers ever made. good, tight action, Post war, these were made with non-wartime shortage high quality wood & steel. Mine has always been right on the money, good weight distribution, the gun itself deserves a 5 rating in my opinion, had to give it a 4 because it can be difficult to find good ammo for these. For those who have reported minor problems, certain main line brands of ammo don't play nice with this model. Beware the follies of corrosive berdan primed ammo, unless you intend to fully breakdown & clean your gun immediately after your done shooting. Made for every citizen of Yugoslavia after WWII & stored in preservative these rifles were made to guarantee the freedom of a nation. They never got their chance...yet!
rifle is better than i thought it would very happy
gun came in best condition. stock great. barrel great. bolt great. shot it for first time sweet shooter. rest. would highly recommend it.
It is beautiful; much nicer than I expected. Appears like new, has beautiful furniture, ALL matching parts! And for THIS price! Mitchell's wants $200 more for same condition. Also, I am impressed with the customer service including the speed of transfer to my FFL as well as the courteous and prompt attention to a minor issue with my initial order. Kudos to Kathy and Brian in internet sales! You have all earned a loyal customer!
Just a note to say that my rifle was in better condition than listed in the internet. Arrived at my dealer quickly. Could not have had a better experience. What a great rifle for under $300 bucks.
I used it back in days,when i served in Yugoslavian national army,on my trooper training (1981).I can tell you,never used such accurate rifle as this.
