Israeli No. 3

Post by vandle »

This is my 3rd Israeli and at first Glance is looks like another Czech Mauser.

On closer look the receiver is not a Brno.

The receiver is manufactured by FN

There is a crest on the receiver which still remains although a little worn.

The crest belongs to Ethiopia.

The rifle serial number remains on the bridge although someone has tried to remove it.

It appears that Israel bought some Ethiopian Contract FN 1924 rifles and updated them to K98 standard using the parts bin.

The rifle itself is in pretty good condition and the bore is good as well.

Its surprising how many variants of Israeli Mausers to collect, no two are the same and could be a collectors theme on its own.
Now to find that IDF crested FN Mauser
