The Zastava M48 rifles have not seen widespread service, having been replaced by the Zastava M59/66 SKS-pattern rifle and the Zastava M70 AK-pattern rifle. They are solely used as ceremonial rifles for the Former Yugoslav Guard, and at military parades. Virtually all M48 rifles imported to Canada show only slight wear to the stock and bluing — usually from storage. Strong rifling, non-existent corrosion, excellent mechanical condition, and an interesting history make the Zastava M48 rifles a no-nonsense and affordable choice for Mauser shooters and collectors alike.
PLEASE NOTE: The product image is not indicative of the condition of the rifles currently in stock. Our surplus rifles arrive in mechanically sound condition, with purely cosmetic wear. Surplus rifles are heavily coated in Cosmoline rust inhibition grease, and should be thoroughly cleaned before first use. Failure to do so can lead to misfeeds, misfires, and even catastrophic failure if the bore is obstructed. We are not liable for any damages and losses incurred through improper cleaning and handling of surplus firearms.
