The M48 Mauser is a post World War IIYugoslavian version of the Belgian Fabrique Nationale designed Mauser model 1924 short rifle. After World War II, the Yugoslavs took this design and incorporated modifications based upon Germany's MauserKarabiner 98k. Although similar in general appearance to that of the German rifle, many of the parts of these two rifles are not interchangeable, especially the bolt and related action parts. The main difference between the M48 and the K98k is that the M48 uses an intermediate-length receiver. They are usually easily identified by the top handguard, which extends behind the rear sight and ends just in front of the receiver ring, although this feature exists on other models as well.

I bought one from them before

I bought one from them before they changed the description and added the SOLD IN AS IS CONDITION NO RETURNS!. I returned mine. I have returned two firearms to them and will never buy from them again. I have heard good things but I have not had a single good experience.

edit: I just remembered the one I received was damaged and I was unable to take it apart. The other firearm I returned was an SKS that would not fire in SA mode even with the grenade launcher button in the correct position. It also had sticky bolt despite the extensive cleaning I did on it. I was pretty upset because not only did I put a lot of time into cleaning it but I put a lot of work into making the wood look nice. I suggest trying to fire anything you buy from them before putting much work into it. I also cancelled one other order of a pistol because I recall the description being questionable. As I type this I remember another time I was thinking of ordering a cz 52 I think and was questioning some things in the description so I called and they said that it was the last of the batch so it was probably not very good condition despite what the description said and that they had been meaning to change that........my two cents, buy from AIM, SOG and others first

Kennyboy, I, too, was put off

Kennyboy, I, too, was put off by the disclaimer, "SOLD IN AS IS CONDITION NO RETURNS." Buying a firearm in "as is" condition (with no returns) is a recipe for disaster.

Anyway, thank you for posting your experiences. After reading what you went through with Widener's I feel fortunate indeed that my one purchase from Widener's went well. I might add that, in seeming contrast to your "shady vendor" experiences, it was a purchase from AIM (rather than Widener's) that turned into a nightmare for me.

Watch out for this scam post.

Watch out for this scam post. Read the actual description of the rifles on the main website. They're in fair condition. Not "very good" condition.

I got an M44 from the, the condition looked great at first until I started cleaning it. The wood is good, the bore was OK but the bolt had rust and some terrible machine marks. It took a lot of muscle to get that bolt to cycle properly.
