    When it comes to bolt action, center-fire rifles I am pretty predictable: I want a Mauser 98. I only have 3 bolt guns that aren't Mausers. A pair of Remington Model 30s and a Krag.

    Here are some of my Mausers.

    The CZ BRNOs from left to right: A 550 FS in 30-'06 with a Weaver K3; A CZ 98 also in 30-'06 built to look like a European sporter; A 1951 CZ 21H in 7x57 (a Leupold 1-4x20 is awaiting the arrival of the rings); and a 602 in 375 H&H also wearing the 1-4 Leupold.

    Some other Mausers hanging around: A Colombian military 30-'06 K98 rebuilt with a laminated stock, express sights and other goodies; an original K98 left unaltered (I don't recall when I bought this but I paid $69 for it so it's been awhile); And an 8x57 M98 sporter "Guild Rifle" stamped with a Bavarian maker's name.

    Wow, that K98 is pristine! Worth a lot more than $69 these days, that's for sure.

    That k98 looks like a m48 because of wood between rear sight and reciever

    I am not familiar with military Mausers. This one bears no markings at all other than a 5 digit serial number. They were sold a couple decades ago as "Mystery Mausers" due to the lack of identification on them.

    Someone once told me it was likely a Yugoslavian model made after the war. Whatever it is, it's in very nice shape and was probably kept in storage for many years without ever being issued prior to being sold to the public. I have shot it a few times but mostly I just keep it as a representative of what my rebuilt rifles looked like before being modified.
