The Yugo Mauser M48 is a fine addition to any marksmen's collection. Although there are several types of ammo available I find the "198gr SWAT" round to work best for me.

These Yugoslavian M-48 Mauser guns are showing up everywhere on the surplus market in varrying states of condition. I paid $199.95 for one in like new condition.
Mine shoots decent groups at 100 yards but always shoots high.
At 100 yards if I aim 3-4 Inches under center I can hit the center consistently.
I have found ammo to be in the $3.00 per 20 rounds range and very plentiful.
Most of these guns were stored for many years and are in Primo condition. I have also found used and abused... (read more)
