    Turkish "M1938" Mauser long rifle, 7.92X57. Made in Turkey in 1940 by Kirikkale. Bolt mismatch, Turkish walnut stock and handguard. The Turks made the receiver ring longer front to rear than a G98 and cut a ring in the front to retain the handguard. I understand that only the Kirikkale receivers were made by the Turks. Also, there are some Kirikkale Mausers, especially some made in 1940, that used recycled M1903 receivers. I assume the handguards on those had the usual spring retainer. Correct sling, correct "M1935" bayonet, scabbard, and frog. Imported by Century.

    1918 Oberndorf Turk GEW 98, matching. I've since picked up a 1918 Oberndorf "Turked" matching bayonet and scabbard, still looking for a correct sling. It's stamped "Turkey" on the right receiver ring, at the proof marks. Does that indicate a pre-1968 import?

    German IG1871/84 long rifle, 11.15X60R. Made in 1888 by Spandau toward the end of production. I don't suppose they continued to make these for long after the Gewehr88 came out. Bolt mismatch (557 numbers off), no import marks, no unit marks, proofed FW for Prussia. It looks to me like it spent some time in South America. French sling, almost correct private purchase 71/84 dress bayonet and scabbard, replica frog. A well used Mauser.

    You have a Museum quality Brazilian. PLEASE don't laminate your target or use the framing technique you mentioned. Seriously bad ideas! :eek:

    You should store the target in an archival safe poly "sheet protector". To prevent curling, sandwich the sheet protected target between a couple of pieces of cardboard. A couple of pieces of tape will hold your 'sandwich" together. Don't stack any excessive weight on it. When you are ready, you should have the target properly framed with acid-free backer board and matting. Special coated glass to inhibit excessive exposure to harmful UVs is always a good idea. You NEVER want your artifact in contact with the glass. You can do the framing yourself for about $30 in materials if you utilize a simple, but safe, off-the-shelf frame and materials. Professional framing? Unfortunately expensive. Perhaps $100-$150.

    Here are my two "W prefixed Yugoslav refurb Mystery to some degree Mausers"...The first find, with no finger grooves was kindly identified for me by Mr. John Wall..since then they have been mentioned in Ball's MMOTW 4th edition..I believe very few have surfaced to date

    A link to a Surplusrifle thread about these rifles with many additional pics:

    http://www.surplusrifleforum.com/vie...p?f=38&t=84894

    The rifle with hang tag is a Radionica 145 M24/47 used for comparison...Please enlarge the last pic to see the MOD 98 "Ghost Marking" signifying I believe an S/42G or K reciever

    Starting on rifles; I posted all my Mauser long rifles.

    Belgian M1889/36 rifle, 7.65X54. M1889 made 1895-1914 by MANUFACTURE D'ARMES DE L'ETAT and then modified to resemble the M1935 rifle in 1936 (or later). Interesting that they rebuilt the bolt with a M98 type gas shield. Bolt mismatch, no import marks, 1936 stock cartouche. FN49 sling, correct bayonet (with muzzle ring removed) and scabbard, Swedish frog. The front band is hinged somewhat like a K98a. Why don't they make them all like that to make my life easier?

    Greek FN1930 rifle, 7.92X57. Made 1938-1940 by FN. Bolt and stock mismatch, bolt and receiver B block, FN stock unnumbered, imported from Turkey by Navy Arms. Generic sling, correct FN1924 long bayonet and scabbard, replica frog. Not as nice as the one posted earlier, but this one is MINE!

    In
    the FN Mauser Rifles book it says about the last 3,000 rifles in the H (Eta) and about a few hundred (in the 4,000 serial number range) of the Theta block were taken for German use. The Theta block was the eighth block, so about 70,300 were made, about 67,000 going to Greece and about 3,300 being taken by Germany. Since the total FN1930 rifles contracted by Greece were 70,000, the contract should have ended with the H (Eta) block. The few hundred Theta block rifles taken by the Germans were likely assembled from overrun parts. Why the few hundred rifles were serial numbered in the 4,000 range is unknown.

    German K98a carbine, 7.92X57. Made in 1918 by Danzig, 1920 property mark. Mixed numbers, correct type bolt, imported by Century. Correct sling, S98/05 bayonet, scabbard, and frog. This was the first attempt to replace the Gewehr 98 with a short rifle. Later, of course came the K98k.

    Geladen,
    Just how big is "The Museum"? I think your man cave must be the size of Howe Cavern :-). Seriously, you've got a great collection and those pistols you posted were great as well! When you wipe down and clean everything, what do you do? Bring in the local Boy Scout troop so they can get credit on their merit badges?

    What serial number block is your Greek mauser in? If its in the G or H block it more than likely never left Belgium and was instead captured and used by the Germans. This is according to Ball's Mauser Military Rifles of the World 4th edition.

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! Here's an FN 24/30, Venezuelan target mauser, matching, 7mm, target sights, original sling and 27 inch barrel. I've heard there were only 400 of these, MMR states it as "a small number" were built. I'm looking forward to shooting this one :-).

    Well I wish I had some Mausers as rare and beautiful as some of the ones I've seen posted in this thread, but alas, I don't. By the way, great rifles, and pistols, everyone. I'll share some pics of Mausers not yet posted yet. I do have a Persian, some Swedes and a Yugo, but there's already been pics of them. First up is my Czech VZ-24 with Czech lion crest and bayonet and sling. It was made in 1937 and refurbed at some point by the Romanians. I purchased it from Empire Arms back in '06. I remember AIM had some for sale with the lion crest and I went back and forth on whether or not to get one and never did. I regretted it after that. So when Empire got these a few months later I didn't hesitate and jumped on one right away. Its in excellent plus refurbed condition with only one or two dings in the wood and almost full bluing. There are a few spots that have been touched up with black paint on the bolt handle and front barrel band. Bore is like a mirror! Receiver, bolt (electropenciled) and stock are the only numbered parts and all match. The sling was purchased off the trader here and was advertised as a WWII German made sling for the VZ-24. I don't know, take it for what its worth!

    Next is my 1939 made German Karabiner 98K. It was made by the Mauser factory and is a Russian capture rifle. Nothing special about it really, just your regular ole Russian captured and reworked Mauser. Bore is dark but with no pitting. Shoots pretty good, especially with the 196 gr. Yugo heavy ball! Debating on whether or not I want to spend the dough for an original WWII German Kar98 sling only to throw it on a Russian capture, so for the meantime its sporting a Yugoslavian sling.

    Lastly is my Spanish FR-8 with correct sling and bayonet. Rifle was made in 1956, but not sure on when it was converted to FR-8 configuration. Neat, handy little rifle and reasonably accurate too. Purchased it from a local gunshop. Funny story about the sling. After I bought this and my buddy saw it and handled it he fell in love with it. He told me if I ever saw another one to let him know so he could get it. Well not a few weeks after I bought mine, another one comes into the same shop. I noticed this new one had a sling on it and the one I bought didn't. So being friends with the shop owner, I gave him $20 for the sling and then called my buddy to come down and get his new FR-8. I figured since I was more of a collector, and my friend was more of a shooter, he wouldn't mind too much. He still ribs me about it sometimes though! Hey, atleast I told him about it right?

    yup like a G-98M with slightly different Lower band and the higher curve in the rear sight base;The harder one to find is the G-98 copy with Radom crest-Seems to have early date of 1922-23 only seen 2 ever,since 1987.Hopefully JimmyC will post pictues of his tgf marked Cz postwar mauser,or NateG513 can get pics of the Bolivian B-50 98K

    German K98k carbine, 7.92X57. Made by Mauser in 1939. Stock mismatch, action self matching, stock self matching. Action is 1939 U block Oberndorf, stock is 1938 U block Oberndorf. I bought this from the vet and saved it from Bubba-vet who had sporterized the stock. Replica sling, correct bayonet, scabbard, and frog. My second Mauser after a Chilean M1895 rifle which I put in a sporter stock, had reblued, altered the bolt handle, put on a low scope safety, and mounted a scope. At the time (1962) they were common and I thought it was OK, since it wasn't German. I repented of my sin and much later bought another Chilean M1895 short rifle which I will forever keep original!

    Default Argentine 1933

    For the Buenos Aires Police In 7.65 Argentine. Not quite sure how many were made.
    The sling came with it so I left it on.
