    Here are my two German Yugos; a V.R.69 (recent PW Arms import) and a PREDUZECE 44 (C.A.I. import from 2003).
    All numbers match where they should and they have faint but visible German stock markings. The V.R.69 has many more remaining German proofs than the PRED.

    The V.R.69 has a star stamp on the grip; does anyone know what that is for/from?

    I got it at J&G sales. I'm lucky that I live nearby and can hand pick myself. Didn't know what I bought until I started researching it. All that I wanted was a good shooter with no counter bore, strong rifling and matching numbers. I didn't even see the BNZ or know what BNZ was famous for. I've been more of a Mosin buyer

    Pardon my ignorance, but what is the name used to identify this particular rifle? Is it a Model 98/48 or something similar? J&G Sales lists them as Mauser 98 Bolt Action Rifle, 8x57, German K98k Rebuilt by Yugoslavia.

    Here is my Yugo K98 I just got. Great bore, and it came with the sight hood and cleaning rod. It's a recent PW arms import.

    S/N K3115. The barrel, I think, is a Yugo replacement as well as the stock.

    I looked at a stamped Prez44 with a winter trigger guard at Danny's Guns in Duncan, OK today with gorgeous bluing all over and a red laminate stock for $380. it was pretty but I don't do Yugo reworks.

    Default Yugoslavian reworked German rifles

    Here's a comparison pic of the M98 long rifle rebuild (Gew98) and the Mod 98/48 (K98k) rifle. Both of these came from J&G Sales in Prescott, AZ.

    The barrel on the M98 is a Yugoslavian replacement, not a scrubbed original.

    That's a mutt then. The Yugoslavs did not make "winter trigger guards" those were post WWII Czech creations. Neither did the Yugoslavs make laminated stocks. I'm guessing you are looking at a reworked German rifle with a German made laminate stock and somebody put the bigger trigger guard on it after he bought it.

    Default RZ-5 marked rifle, a variation of the TRZ-5

    I stumbled across this at a Gander Mtn earlier this year. Was hoping to find one of the rarer variants, and came across this instead. A very pleasant surprise. IAW Branko (thru, and thanks to Nothernug), "....RZ-5 stands for "Remontni zavod", - "repair facility". It is exactly the same as TRZ-5 or Tehnicko-remontni zavod - technical repair facility. Name of the facility are sometimes written short - only Remontni zavod."

    Nice find! Especially the 'dou 44' still visible! The 'Z in circle' on the extractor ring looks Polish, or ?

    Thank you very much! I hadn't noticed that mark on the extractor ring - I'll have to take a closer look! I have a SCW WZ29 that has the circle-Z, but only on the receiver ring. I'll have to compare the marks to see if they are similar. Thank you once again for pointing that out!

    I received a Radionica 145 24/47 .the cool issue on mine is they did not go nuts on the import marks and the receiver is beautiful and the crest is also really mint .I would venture to say the YUGO name is a resistance to collecting these .Yes the tide is finally turning .If you say you've got a Serbian m24 or m24b ,then eyebrows go up ! Hopefully we can get past the YUGO thing and see these are well worth buying and collecting .
    I have found a german rework very reasonable I have been looking at in a California shop .It's a non mover so far .I might have to just go and "move" it.

    A M24/47 isn't a Yugo rework of a K98k, and neither is a Serbian M24 (do you mean Yugo M24?). A German rework is also not a Yugo rework, so I'm having trouble (as I normally do) understanding the point you are trying to make. Is that preface just gratuitous stream of consciousness postings, or are you trying to make a point by it?

    Are you trying to tell us that you found a YUGO rework of a GERMAN K98k or what?

    Serbian M24 or M24b? Serbia was not an independent country from 1918 until 2006.

    How's that expert information working for you?

    I no longer have this Yugo. Pulled up the only pictures I have of it. If I remember right the sling is a repro.

    Default Yugo K98k I picked up today

    I picked up a K98k today that has been reworked by Yugoslavia after WWII. The rifle is a Pred 44 rework and all most all of the German markings have been scrubbed except for a few serial numbers (none match), a couple of WaA, and the 43 on the receiver for when it was manufactured. The bolt does not match either the Yugo serial number or any of the old German numbers. The stock is a laminate stock that has seen better days. Some parts of it have not been sanded and other parts have seen a lot of sandpaper. There is what appears to be a manufacture date under the butt plate which looks like 2. 9. 4? K.K. I have not been able to get the front barrel ban off so I have not seen what markings are on the under side of the barrel or on the inner sides of the stock. From the look of the metal of the front H ban and the barrel I am not the only one to have this problem. The bore looks pretty good and I will be taking the rifle out to the range next weekend. I like the Mauser rifles and I have become more interested in K98k's so this is me putting my toe into the shallow end of that pool. I have not been able to get an overall image of the rifle, just couldn't get good lighting but I will get one later on.

    You sir, are wrong. They are not the same. There are the Yugoslav capture K98's the M48's, the M24/47's with both strait and bent bolts. The Yugoslav guns have just as much variation as the German guns.

    Also included in the list of various Yugo Mausers. The numerous post-war 98's assembled with a combination of captured and newly manufactured parts. The captured parts were not necessarily German. Parts, usually barreled receivers also came from Poland and Czechoslovakia. The combo Yugos are often mistaken for Israeli because the marking were often scrubbed or over stamped. Usually but not always, the Israeli have a Star of David stamped in various locations.

    Hey guys,
    I actually joined just to post in this thread. I picked up what appears to be a Yugo K98 rework, but I hoping for some help in confirming this. Sorry about the pictures getting rotated, here is a link an Imgur album for easier viewing: http://imgur.com/a/uKwik

    It's got a W-Prefix serial number and very nice barrel, which I'm assuming is probably brand new. The stock is also a very nice laminate, and the sling is an original Yugo M48 sling I picked up online.

    The biggest oddity that stands out to me is the receiver. It is completely scrubbed, which I've never seen before. I also noticed a VZ24 marking on the side wall, which I highlighted with chalk for the photo. Perhaps this is a parts gun built on a Serbian receiver? I found an article on a similar gun, which likely came from the same importer since I am also in Canada: http://rodandgun.netfirms.com/articl...ery_Mauser.pdf

    There are, however, several Waffenamt stamps. These are the ones I have found so far, I haven't had the stock off yet.

    He was making fun with me.

    Pardon my ignorance, but what is the name used to identify this particular rifle? Is it a Model 98/48 or something similar? J&G Sales lists them as Mauser 98 Bolt Action Rifle, 8x57, German K98k Rebuilt by Yugoslavia.
    Ignorance is fine. Very curable.
    To the Yugoslavs, the refurbished German model 98 rifle was simply an "M98" or "MOD98" as marked on the rifles side rail. From 1950, with the introduction of the M48 rifle, the German rifle became the M98/48.
    It was after 1950 that they started marking them with the "
    /48." So if you have one of those you may suppose it was refurbed then or later. Before then, they just left the original MOD.98 or M.98 in place. In some cases, the "/48" was added behind the original German marking MOD.98 or M.98, the difference in fonts being clearly visible. Other times the side rail was scrubbed and the whole nomenclature stamped anew as evidenced by uniformity of font.
    "In times of trouble and of war, God and soldiers we adore;
    When wars are done and wrongs are righted, God's forgotten and the soldier slighted."
