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.

I think Yugo mausers are some of the most underrated surplus rifles available these days. I have had a M24/47 and a K98 refurb and they both shot very well. I ended up selling the M24/47 to a good friend of mine so he could get in on milsurps.

Yep. Very good rifles. Mine shoots very well.

that's a good looking rifle, btw. The stock looks to have some character. Any more pics?

I've not found a Yugoslavian rifle that I haven't liked. Yes, I even like the 59/66 SKS

Nice rifle!

Our local gun store, Sunrise Pass Arms, just sold me one for $150, which was full of cosmoline so he didn't want to deal with it. Cleaned it up with carburetor cleaner, and soaked the bolt in same. Looks much better, and the bolt and action is smooth. No bluing left on it, but the bore looks great! Wife did not know what to get me for Christmas, so I said This is it! So it is in a box with a ribbon on it under our tree.

Nice-looking rifle.

I own a couple of Yugo Mausers. Both are in very nice shape, and both shoot quite well.

Sounds like you got a great deal, too. Congrats, and enjoy.

Very nice! I really like stocks like that.
In case you don't know, that's an early one. The Yugoslav refurbishing program began in 1946 with German model 98s, and starting on their model 1924s in 1947 as the M24/47. At that time, the arsenal stamp you see on the receiver there was the standard. It was changed in Sept. of '47 into the familiar PREDUZECE 44 (IN Cyrillic form at first) so your rifle was produced prior to that. That is the primary arms works at Kragujevak in Serbia, by the way.

Is that teak? I had a 24/47 many years ago that looked similar in the stock department. Was definitely a well made machine. I sold it quite s long time ago, but have a 24/52c in its place.

They are in the top 5 accurate 8x57 m/m Mauser types out there. I've shot mine at 800 yards and it did very well with the 198 grain bullets.

There are NO teak stocks. That is a Mitchell's Mausers ad claim that quite frankly is nothing more than a good olde fashioned 'bald faced lie!

Now, there was a case of Yugoslavian made sks rifles stocked in teak. It was a limited order from an unnamed African nation who supplied the wood for the stocks. There was no excess to have been used for anything else.

Yugoslav stock woods used through WWII was walnut. about the first 10,000 M48s were said to have been stocked in walnut but then they switched to elm, most commonly recommended was "Carpathian elm" but I don't know enough about woods to say for sure. Also beech and oak were said (by Branko Bogdanovic) to have been used but, I have my doubts. Later sporting rifles made from parts from the military Mauser programs by Zastava were clearly stocked in Beech but I have never seen (in person or photo) a Yugoslav military long arm so stocked. As for oak, I have seen a number of straight grained elm stocks that I would have SWORN were oak. But, a look under the butt plate will prove otherwise.
The ringer in all this is that I have seen quite a few, and in fact own, a walnut stocked M48B. By all accounts, this should not be. but I have seen too many to consider it a fluke and in most cases it's pretty sure that the stocks are original to the rifle and not a later replacement.
