    Hello everyone,

    I received this Mauser as a gift from a great friend of mine a few years ago. It has never been fired. I was wondering if someone can give me some information based on what I attached.

    Thank you :)

    It's an FN Mauser. Note the markings on the sight, look Arabic, my guess is that the rifle was a contract piece for some Mid-Eastern country.

    The markings on the sight appear to be the same as on Iranian rifles.

    It is a FN k98 made in Belguim. The sight markings are cyrlic. The receiver crest should tell you for whom it was made. I had one almost the same except it was made for the Israeli army and was chambered in 7.62 NATO
