I was in at a store looking at another Mauser and I saw this one but passed it up at first, I had gone back and passed on the original and took a closer look at this one. its all matching , mint with no import marked. came with a bayonet, ammo pouch, sling. http://www.flickr.com/photos/16343279@N08/sets/72157626151137779/

I've got one too about in that condition but the bolt doesn't match.
Just picked up a 24/47 about a week ago

I have developed a sort of Mauser addiction.

Nice looker.

If you find a M48A marked rifle that has both a stamped floor plate and trigger guard it is actually a M48B.

I picked up one of those about 15 years ago. It looks to have an elm stock with a large patch, extremely well fitted in one side of forearm. Interesting thing is serial number is one less than 10,000

I've always thought it odd to see elm used for a stock, but it seems to work well enough. I've got an M.95 or 2 with elm stocks. SW

gotta use what is at hand i guess - there was a day many reas ago when the elms of america were dying that the abundance of great wood might have spoken well to its use , but then it was never considered a great opyion even in those days of abundance ,

we lost in my family homestead two or three american elms with a three foot diameter++ which would have made a number of great stocks ,
