Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Yugo rework Mod 98 long rifle

#1 Post by M67 » Fri Oct 25, 2019 12:08 pm

From my collection. I bought from one shooting club. Yugoslav Army delivered to the shooting clubs along the country lots of obsolete rifles to practice shooting.
I saw many of these long Mausers however very rare original butstock. It has scrubbed German markings and forged yugoslav chest. Some small markings stil exist. All matching.

And another interestingyugoslav oficial Army document. The list of all mausers in the Yugoslav Armed Forces (beside all other small arms). I found this photo of long beauty in it.

Pretty cool rifle and book.
Was the book available locally or just for government use?

It was in the government use (RESTRICTED). It was published in 1984. After the collapse of Yugoslavia the book didn't have any restrictions however it is pretty rare. It is very good official and confirmed source for me as a military collector.
I have lots of Yugoslav military and technical manuals. One of them (PUŠKA 7,9 mm M48m M48A, M24/47 i M98/48 ) is presented in this subforum and covers the Yugoslav rifles- all mausers types. It is from 1962.
