We just received another shipment of M48 rifles. These rifles were made after WW2 by Zastava in Yugoslavia. The condition ranges from good to very good. We do have a hand select option available for an additional $50.00. These rifles come straight out of Ethiopia. They were delivered with other defense products in the 1950`s and 60`s to Ethiopia. These might be the last lot available of these great shooters. Rifles require a C&R or FFL to purchase.

History of these rifles

The Zastava M48 (Serbo-Croatian: Puška M.48 7,9 mm / Пушка M.48 7,9 mm, "Rifle M.48 7.9 mm") is a post World War II Yugoslav version of the German Karabiner 98k designed by Mauser and the Belgian designed M24 series. It was the standard service rifle of the Yugoslav People's Army from the early 1950s until its replacement by the Zastava M59/66, a licensed copy of the Soviet SKS semiautomatic carbine, in the early 1960s.

After World War II, Yugoslavia took the design of the 98k rifle series and produced its own domestic variant with minor modifications. Although very similar in external appearance, many of the parts of the Yugoslav and German rifles are not interchangeable, such as the bolt.
