Yugo Model 1927 8mm. I restored it last winter and it's a fantastic little shooter.

1916 spanish in 7.62 unmarked for date- I blew it up just to see how much it would take....40 grains of bullseye on a 180 grain bullet sent the bolt in the oposite direction of the bullet.
1938 turkish 8x57 dated 1942
1895 spanish in 7x57 dated 1936
VZ-24 Czech was 8x57, now .308 undated no crest

Custom .243 with a Mauser 98 action on a 24" shilen barrel and a Monte Carlo youth stock. Judging by the swastika I would say it is a made in Germany action. Not sure of the year. 2003 is when I got it for my boy. Shoots good.

Charlie,
Hate to tell you but K98k's never had buttstock storage for any type of cleaning kit.

Yugoslavian M48 in 8mm and a commercial Mauser sporting rifle Model 66 in .30-06 and .25-06. Strangely enough I was never very interested in the Mauser military rifles.

Hangfire,

At my age, I'm not certain of much anymore. The Mauser however, is in my safe, next to another one, which is a mismatch and that is the one that goes to the range.

I believe my good friend from PA, 7mm nut, can vouch for the Mauser I posted about. He slobbered all over it when he was here in my home.

Well, lets see. Isn't 7mm the one that listens to Heavy Metal, and is going to relace a bbl using a pipewrench?????And I don't consider slobbering much of a confirmation.I rest my case!

KEEP THEM COMING...
i know there are more MAUSER RIFLE owners here on GB.
MARK CHRISTIAN... i was never a big fan myself, but as my collection grows, and i concentrate on MILITARY ISSUE long arms from 1895-1940 i found a need to purchase several MAUSER rifles. as i filled some holes on my MUST BUY list, i have come to appreciate these guns. best regards, mike.
