I hear they use the old 8mm mauser round for their marksman rifles but what about MG's and assault rifles?

Are we talking the artist formerly known as Yugoslavia, or Slovenia, Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia Herzogovina, Montenegro, and Macedonia?

If the former, there was a mix of everything. M53 GPMG, was 7.92, while the M80 was 7.62x54R. Also, the M70 was 7.62x39.

We could stick with Serbia and Zastava:

A dog's breakfast of calibers. A collectors dream, a storekeepers nightmare.:uhoh: :D

There was an article a couple of issues of SAR ago that featured writers and staff (inlcuding Dan) of SAR going to Serbia and shooting all week. Everything under the sun was present.

They started off after WWII using Axis style weapons and chamberings and then transitioned to com block calibers and weapons with some US stuff mixed in, yes they had some M1 Thompsons and older M16's.

They even made MG34's and I think MG42's or at least they were used in the last war. Most of the older stuff was all 8mm Mauser inlcuding the MG34's and 42's

All kinds of things turned up in the last war there, even MP40's the previously mentioned M1 Thompson AK's from all over the place, M48's and K98 mausers that were restamped, scorpions, G3's, MGL's RPK's, PKS
s, and various pistols manufactured over the years as well as stuff that was captured after WWII.
