I have seen Yugoslavian M48 mausers for a fairly low price and was thinking of making a sporter Mauser. I have seen barrels for them available online and was wondering if a barrel for a k98 will fit a m48. i have read that the Yugo Mausers were made on the same machinery, so i was wondering if the barrels have the same threads.

i realize that rebarreling will takeaway form it collectablility, but i want a shooter, not a collectible.

thanks in advance,

the rifleer.
