Mostly Tam's 7.65 Argentinian model, but also M98 and M48 Yugo. More will be added as I take the photos.

Some nice pics Oleg .....

I have a Mauser 1916 Spanish . in .308 ... I shoot non .308 Win thru that .. not the strongest bolt lockup. I used to have a tasty K98 but .. alas no more!

I converted a Turk to take the (ugly! .. Steyr type) ATI furniture ... shoots quite reasonably.

May I add tho ..... cos still Mauser ... my Circa 1920's Mauser Obendorfe ...22lr .. a fine rifle.

The Spanish, small ring, 1916 Mauser in .308

Modified Turk with ATI furniture .. 8mm

Mauser Obendorfe in .22lr

That Mauser 98 in 22LR sure is pretty. :)

Since we're playing show & tell with our mausers, I have a few of my sweets that I'd like to brag on.

1st (top):
M48 Yugo
Sporting scout scope

M96/38 Swede

K31 Schmidt-Rubin

As handy a rifle as you'll ever find

My chopped Swede Mauser:

And again on the far right:

:o Sorry that a Bubba-ized version's the best I can contribute... Bubba did a dang good job, though. :)

Don't have a shot of it on it's own, but that's a Mauser k98 on the top of the pile there. Israeli army issue, .308, Seitengewehr 84/98 3rd model bayonet.

Also in there is a 1944 Maltby No .4 Mk I with Mk II* spike bayonet and a 1926 Lithgow No. 1 Mk III with chromed dress Pattern '07 bayonet, but they're not what this thread is about ;)

That's a neat looking Turk- much cooler features than mine.
Mine looked like they were tumbed in drums full of rocks before they were imported.:o

how do we like that stock - the black one, of course.

Dagnabbit, Oleg: Now you've done it!

I never was much into military firearms, but your recent photos have me drooling to become a collector.

I especially have liked the looks of the Mauser k98 in military configuration. I've owned them before, in the long ago past, but the heavy recoil augmented by that ill-fitting metal butt plate, have always made selling or trading an easy thing to do.

Recoil has seldom been a deciding factor in my reasons for disposing of or acquiring new rifles; but the Mauser 98 has always been an exception. It might well have been the stock fit as well as the buttplate, but together they made shooting the rifle unpleasant to say the least. Even my .45-70 has less apparent recoil.

Nonetheless, because of your exquisite photos, the M98 is almost certain to be my next purchase. And I'm afraid that might lead to others.

how do we like that stock - the black one, of course. Chapper ...... assuming you mean mine .... well, it sure ain't the prettiest thing on a rifle!! Strangely tho .... when in use it feels remarkably ergonic .. I really rather like it. As I think I said, they have sorta copied the Steyr form here. Wasn't over easy to fit either.

I'm not one for bubba-izing old stuff normally but ..... the std stock on the Turk was so, so awkward for using irons ..... could barely get eye line down low enough ..... and if I did it was ''whack the cheek'' time ... very flinch inducing! :p

I'm not sure tho that the scope mounting is that tough .. tho it's survived thus far! It's not a tight grouping gun right now .. must check it out again and may even fit a spare Leupold I have.

The bolt on that, I did the ''cut off - drill&tap - add bent'' sorta deal ... to save the torch and bend operation.
