What do you think about this?

Nice Rifle. Good price as well. I would see if some of the accessories come with it, but you would never use any of them anyway, so it is not that big of a deal. A bayonet would be nice though. You never know when you will have to finish off a groundhog or bear or something.

This is the early milled all milled version, much tougher if you must "butt stroke" someone.
(Carefull with doing that, you can crush a skull in one shot with one of these.)

The wood is nice. It looks like the Teak wood stocks that I have. That is good as it is tough as hell. It's the same wood the navy used on the decks of battleships. It also will not splinter. It is about 2 pounds heavier than a regular laminated stock, but this heps to reduce recoil.

M-48's are getting hard to find, especially in this condition. Most rifles now are M-48A's.

If it were me, and I was looking fo a good Mauser, I would jump on this one. The Yugo steel is stronger than the German steel.

The only bad part is that the receiver is shorter than a German receiver, so if you want to convert it later (please don't) you must keep it within a caliber shorter than _ X 57mm.

Hope this helps.
