I got a Yugo mauser a few years ago that was unfired. I cleaned it up and sure enough, the barrel was perfect.

It shoots great. Cleans up easy. Kicks like a mule. I love it.

Very nice.

Nice Mauser. I have two of them. One is a 1942 model. Pretty nice shape. The other is a 1945 model which shoots but is put together a little cheaper than 42 model. Has a few cast parts instead of machined like the 42 model. Both still retain the Nazi markings.

Soviet refurb eh? They are legit, don't let anyone tell you otherwise...

My favorite action of all time. The mauser is IMHO the most sold rifle every built.

Congrats and please, range report and lots of pics.

Very Nice!

What code/year is it?

From the looks of it, you have an early flat walnut stock


Here is my 1939 "42" Mauser Oberndorf Russian Capture

Awesome lil number you got thar!

The "cool" factor never matters, nor does finish. Any rifle in your own damn hands is beautiful.

I got 3 M48 Yugo's. 2 of them where "cosmo'ed" to the hilt when I got them and have PERFECT bores. The 3rd one was "clean" and had a very pited bore that looked like sandpaper! So, I had it re-barreled to .308win. and the same military conture so it would fit the original stock and iron sights.

I don't know if it's just me or not but, the .308win kicks a bit more than the other two (thier both 7.92)


Ether way, those mausers are great!

This is a 1943, BYF.

The bore is bright and clean, with very good rifling.


DriftPunch, it is a Russian capture, looks like all they did to it, was did it in cosmo, and set it back, all markings are intact......

Cool... There were 1,142,336 1943 BYF produced.... or 8.131% of all 98K Production. (1934-1945)

BYF is the code for Mauser Werke Oberndorf
My "42" is the same as yours...... they changed from "42" to BYF in 1941

The correct waffenampts (the small warbird over a ID number) for this rifle are 135

Correct parts would include: All milled parts, Upper band should be the "Closed" type, laminated stock with cupped buttplate.


Have you taken it apart yet? If so.... are there any markings on the underside of the barrel?

I just thought you would enjoy the tid-bits listed above
