Sn 10397 An original Zastava Mod.98/48 Preduzece 44 Rifle and leather sling with matching bolt and trigger plate numbers. The Zastava M98/48 (often called Mod.98/48, Model. 98/48, Yugo K98) was a refurbished bolt action rifle, chambered for the 7.92×57mm Mauser cartridge that was temporary adopted in the years after WWII by the Yugoslav People's Army. It has been refurbished from the battle-proven Mauser K98k rifle that had been left-over by Germans or captured by partisans during WWII. The original German markings were scrubbed and replaced by the Yugoslav ones. The most noticeable markings are the Yugoslav Crest and the "Preduzece 44"(It refers to the site where it was refurbished. e.g. "Preduzece 44" stands for "Institute 44"-Kragujevac, Serbia-the location of Zastava Arms) present on the receiver's ring. Another noticeable marking is the one present on the left side of the receiver, the "Mod. 98/48". The rifle has a ladder rear sight and blade foresight. The receiver's ring is stamped on the left hand side with 'Preduzece 44' and just to the rear of this it has 'Mod 98'. On the opposite side it is stamped with a serial number "E4938" which is repeated on the top of the bolt and the plate just in front of the trigger guard. The woodwork is original and matching and in good condition. It has the stock slotted for a sling anchor. The stock is stamped on the left side with "9260 4938". The stock is fitted with a metal butt plate. The rifle is complete with a hide sling. The weapon cocks strips and dry fires as it should. Price includes deactivation certificate & UK delivery.
