Mauser M24/47


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


The surplus Mauser M24/47 rifles that are for sale everywhere the same shorter action as the M48's? Are these a large ring receiver? Any details would be great.

Is the M98 the only action that will take the threaded and short chambered barrels, such as Midway sells?

I have both the M24/47 and the M48. Except for the 24's straight bolt handle and a few stock changes, they are the same rifle. Both appear to be large ring.

Do not know about the Midway barrel.

The m24 is a large action and will accept the Midway barrel. Where you may run into confusion is a Turkish mauser. These are different in the thread diameter. If I remeber correctly these have a large reciever ring but a small barrel thread.

I have built several rifles on the VZ24 action and found them very good actions.

There are barrels available for the small ring and the Turk's also.

Thanks for the clarification.

From what I understand this action is a bit shorter than a "regular" M98, so it would be best to stick with x57 based casings or shorter?

The actions of the M48 series and the M24 series (24/47)...are considered "intermediate large-rings". The actual difference is that the distance between the action screws is about 0.25" shorter (than the standard-length Mauser 98 type actions). As for cartidge cases, the round used is the same....the 7.92 x 57JS (commonly called 8mm Mauser). Standard cases made for this cartridge may be used....as well as re-formed .30/06 cases (re-formed and trimmed)...as well as other parent cases with the correct base diameter (0.473"). There is NO reason to avoid using these re-formed cases, if that is your choice of what to use. The maximum ase length for this round is 2.240" (56.896mm)...so you see, you would have to trim the .30/06 cases (63 mm long) back, quite a bit. But, it is perfectly OK to do this. The correct bullet diameter for ALL of the M24 & M48 series rifles is the standard .323" (8mm Mauser) bullets. The 24/47s and M48s usually like heavier bullets rather than lighter....170 grains or heavier. 180, 185, 195 grain bullets usually do very well.

Midway barrels for the '98 Mauser

I have a local gunsmith who put a Midway F34 Contour '98 Mauser .280 Remington barrel on a 1903A3 Springfield sporter. He had the rethread and rechamber it, but it works very well. All the best...

I have a yugo m27/47. I am also considering rebarreling with a short chamber adams and bennett barrel. I removed my barrel and noticed something strikingly different. The barrel has a gas ring around the chamber that protrudes out about an 8th of an inch and it has a groove notched out of the barrel for the extractor. I also noticed the bolt faces are different form the regular german 98's and machining appears to be required for these barrel jobs. ouch

Someone recently told me that there are different types of 8mm ammo, and that some of it will work fine if the Yugo 24/47 and some of which will damage the rifle. What do you know about this?

If the round is 8x57(7.9,7.92) you are all set. An 8x57JS Rifle will not accept 8x56r, 8mm Breda, as they are completely different cartridges. Any 8x57 Mauser round is ok. Some folks don't like Turkish, it is very hot! JP

Welcome to the forum.... the 24/47s are fine, strong rifles.

The surplus turk ammo gives a sticky bolt lift in about half of my guns, FYI.

Well I can say now that the M48 bolt and M24/47 bolt aer interchangeable, but both are too short for the Kar 98. My M24/47 broke its firing pin, and I had to buy an M48 to get another one. Now I have an M48 with no firing pin.

Try Numrich gun parts. Here's a link to their Yugo 48 parts list.

http://www.e-gunparts.com/products.a...20YUGOSLAV&MC=

They seem to have a firing pin for $20.

Post Mauser M24/47 manual

We just bought a Mauser M24/47 and am looking for a manual or a site that has specifics on the gun - reloading details, the use of the recoil screw, etc. Anyone know of a good site for this?

It's a basic Mauser action and so any book on that type of rifle should suffice. As for reloading - it's an 8mm, right? Most are and you should be good to go with data from any loading manual, although you will find that the maximum pressure level varies with the book.

I don't know what you mean by the recoil screw. Cross bolt? Ask any other questions you need to clarify......

Wow! Such an old thread. Start here:

http://www.surplusrifle.com/yugom48/index.asp

The M48 is very simular to the M24/47. Go into the forums sections and look under Yugo rifles for some good info.

http://www.surplusrifleforum.com/viewforum.php?f=38

Also you can try mauser central for all things Mauser.

I just tried a 98k bolt in a vz24 czech mauser and it fit and functioned.

I think the m48 yugo mauser has the shortest bolt and its not interchangable with the other mausers. If i remember correctly.

Yup, M48 is an oddball, it is a descendant of the 24/47, and also some trivia - the Turk 1903 actions use the same length bolt, although the total length of the 1903 Turks matches the usual large ring mauser.

No end to the trivia on the subject of mausers....

More or less. You will have to check headspace and make sure everything lines up, though.
