I picked this Israeli Mauser up a little while ago.

The condition is ok for a rifle that was used a little by the IDF

Its a Brno 1945 all matching. I cant find any dirt birds so Im assuming its post war manufacture.
Its not a bad shooter but needs some experimentation with loads to get the best out of it.
I managed to find a Israeli K98 Bayo to go with it.

Thanks for posting.
It is interesting that these rifles have markings placed in diff areas of the receiver from whom ever modified them to 7.62x51mm. They are fine shooters at long range.

Hi Rapidrob

You have raised a good point. From all the pictures i've seen there seems to be no directive given on how to mark the receivers, only the information. It seems it was left to the individual on the end result.
It seems there was no instructions/standard to adhere to.
