I originally posted this over on the Yugo Mauser sub-forum, but thought i probably should have posted it here.

I picked up the Syrian Mauser from my FFL today. It does look pretty good, except the bluing is somewhat worn and the stock has a few dents and dings. Everything looks solid, though, and the bore is tight and reasonably shiny.

Has the Syrian crest, but no "jeem"

All matching

Had a hard time getting a pic of the bore, but it somewhat shiny and tight. That is a 200 grain 8mm Nosler CC bullet.

Very nice. Here is a pic. of my Syrian Mauser. It's kind of neat that they are 897 apart in serial numbers. Ralph

I might need a Yugo Model 1924 and a 24/52 in my collection. PM me if you have one to sell.

Wow, Ralph that is a great looking rifle. How does it shoot?

It looks like it has a milled floorplate. Can you confirm that?

Cool that our rifles have such close serial numbers.

You got that right!

Interesting that our Syrians are both all milled. I had someone on another forum (Gunboards) tell me that he had never seen a Syrian with a milled floorplate. You might want to check in over there is you haven't already. That guy is collecting Syrian serial numbers.

What a great crest, on a great rifle. I have never seen these. Were some imported at some point? Are these rare personal imports from back when you could? ...?

I'm not sure how the Syrian Mausers were imported, but mine has a very light CAI ST Alb VT stamp on the barrel, so I'm assuming that it may have arrived in a group.

The Syrian M48"s came in the late 80s early 90s along with a mixture of rifles from Syria.
