M48 Mauser Trigger gaurd/floorplate


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I have a M48 Yugo Mauser with a stamped sheet metal floor plate. I want to either have the stock military barrel sporterized or re-barrel the action. I wondered if any one knew if these rifles came with a milled floorplate or if there was an aftermarket replacement available.
thanks
Royce

The Model 48A came with the stamped floor plate and trigger guard. The Model 48 came with milled trigger guard and floor plate. Your rifle is either a 48A or if not marked 48A on the receiver ring, the parts have been mis-matched. All you should need to do is find the trigger guard and floor plate from a 48 and swap them out. You may be able to get them from GPC.

Thumbs up

Thanks for the info Big Bore, My rifle is in fact a M48A. I will check with GPC and see if they have one.

If you already know this then just disregard it. The M48 yugo mauser uses a different trigger guard than a normal M98. The spacing on the guard screws is about 1/4 inch different. Closer together as I recall and some of the curves around the magazine won't match up either. When I went looking, almost none of gunstock makers like McMillian, H & S Precision made one for this model.

Fortunately Boyd's make stocks specificly for this model. Go to http://www.boydboys.com for info.
Good luck on your project.

Mordo,
Thanks for the info, I checked out Boyds stocks a while back. I have a semi-inleted second from Richards Microfit, I picked up last year for this rifle. It had a bad forarm tip (poor fitting with some glue or filler showing). I thought I would put a new Tip and Cap on it. Did you restock yours? any other modifications?

Replacement parts

There are a few other places that may have a Yugoslav Model 48 triggerguard and floorplate. They are Sarco, Inc. at www.sarcoinc.com or Marstar at www.marstar.ca. Hope this helps. All the best...
