I picked this rifle up at the TMCA show in Franklin the Friday before Easter. When I saw the crest I knew it was going home with me.

Not at all knowledgeable on Mausers, but that doesn't keep me from appreciating a fine looking rifle. And that sure is one.

Outstanding pickup. I let a similar one get away from me not long ago and have been kicking myself since. Gotta love those Mauser crests!

Wow. I hadn't heard of a Syrian M48 and I sure wouldn't have expected it to be in such good shape. Nice!

Thats a real nice one. I started to buy one years ago but, didn't commit. All the various M48 rifles are going way up in price. A friend has a Yugo 48 that looks unissued. Probably not though. Lol.

It depends on whether Mitchell’s mausers got ahold of the rifle before your friend. They’re the experts at humping up a milsurp rifle. You’re right, I see asking prices about double what they’re actually worth but to each his own.

I’m sure someone is willing to pay K98k prices for Yugo M48’s and others or the asking prices would fall but I’m not seeing that.

Yeah, I remember when Mitchell's was selling so many. I don't know if its one of them or not. It was bought about 12 years ago. Its got a wooden box, bayonet, bayo frog, cleaning kit, whole nine yards.

Good looking rifle.  I'm not a Mauser guy, I take it the Syrian variant is one of the rarer iterations?

From what I've read, there's not a lot of these floating around for sale. My example was either taken care of, ie, cleaned correctly after shooting or not shot much at all by the look of the bore. One of the members over at gunboards.com has a data base of Syrian serial #'s and it is a small list.
