    Have this laying around and would like to know what I got and what its worth. Its all matching #s, Its missing the stock and rear site. What should I do with it make it pretty again or get rid of it. Kinda want a project but is it worth it? I am not a Mauser guy but I love guns! Thanks guys!
  2. Curios and Relics
    I have been searching for one of these for a long time. Every time I find one though the stocks are usually pretty beat up, cracked or a chunk missing here and there. I finally stumbled across this a few weeks back and was able to pick it up today. 1958 Spanish FR-8 Mauser 17.5" barrel...

    Hello all, The gander mtn in cicero ny is undergoing a huge remodel and their gun selection is actually pretty impressive now. They have a whole bunch of yugo mausers for sale for around $350, ive been thinking about a mauser for a while but that price seems kind of high for a non k98/non full...

    My first C&R buy is in the book. I received a M24/47 Yugoslavian Mauser from Samco today. No pics yet, I'll have some tomorrow. The cosmoline it thick and almost black. It's going to take a bit of work to get it clean. Like I said, pics tomorrow

    Been working on this here and there for quite some time. Linking over to the new thread over at MauserCentral. If required, I can redo the whole post here. Mauser Central • View topic - (PIC HEAVY) Made progress on my 1909 Argentine Mauser! Let me know some thoughts!

    took advantage of a gorgeous day here in downstate NY to get to the local outdoor range. worked pistol for the first 2 hours, until my elbow hurt (Smith & Wesson M&P 40 and a Smith & Wesson Shield in .40 S&W). then went to the 200 yard benches for some Mauser & SKS action. The Mauser is my JP...

    I had gotten this rifle from my uncle in 1985 after retiring. He used to let me hold it on my lap while sitting on his plush rocking chair as a kid. I was only around 5 and he sure was taking a chance. My uncle had brought a military Mauser action to G&H back in 1949 to be built to his...

    LGS had a Yugo 8mm Mauser 24/47 for sale the other day. $299. I assume it was a '44 based on the 44 after some funky looking characters on the side. Came with cleaning rod . No sling. The good. It had what looked like a very nice bore. Nice stamped mark/cartouche (?) on the top. Not so...

    well dudes, this might finally be the tough one. it's a 1940 AX (Erfurter Maschinenfabrik (ERMA)) resto project. These were rare, rare, rare!!! :cheers: The AX code for Erma was only for 1940 and half (or so) of 1941 (then Erma switched over to cranking out MP40 machine pistols. we all know how...

    Most recent addition to the family was a total score off Gun Broker. Was advertized as a "Russian Capture", but it is most obviously NOT! Some other country captured it, as the soviets soiled all they touched in that regard. this thing is pristine, except for a few electro-pencil markings, and...

    This is one of the more comprehensive k98 Mauser references I have found. It covers every factory and year, and will be of great help to anyone going the C&R Mauser route. Enjoy! Ycgg WW2 German arms article index page (Sticky perhaps?) (Do we have a mod for the C&R section? I wonder) wOOt...

    I got this older Mauser a while back from and Estate Auction. To sum it up the rifle had seen better days but I cost me hardly anything. The stock was demolished so its pretty much a barrel receiver, bolt, trigger and hardware. It had a nice family of spiders living in the barrel I soaked it...
  13. Curios and Relics
    well, I'm not standing still. I am keeping these coming at a clip! :) Next up is a CE 1943 Mauser (Manufactured at the J.P. Sauer & Sohn factory in Suhl). Gotta get some work done here at the office, but here's one pic as a teaser until later. Will post more pics tonight! :)

    in the interest of keeping some good stuff flowing forwards (in the same vein as JT76's post a few weeks ago re his cool WWI stuff, during the heart of the early Cuomo Dark Times), I thought I'd post about my Mauser re-build project. I won a bolt mis-match barreled action from Gun Broker. it's...

    I'm only asking because if you won one particular rifle I have the correct numbered cleaning rod for it. The original owner or someone must have mixed them up.
