I've had this this Yugo Mauser for several years but have never shot it. The bolt still has some old cosmoline in it. This is the nicest M48 that I've ever seen and I can't say for certain but I don't think it was ever issued. I'm not an expert on old military guns but the bore looks perfect. The stock is in fantastic condition as well and all the numbers match. I was so impressed with the condition that I just put it in a gun sock and stuck it in the back of the safe.
