Persian Mauser Carbine....almost! 5 Years, 4 Months ago Karma: 14  
This gets put in "the one that got away" file. A Persian Mauser Carbine in walnut stock became available to me the other day...my heart almost stopped when I saw the photo, absolutely beautiful! I took a quick break, checked the bank situation, decided which bills I could do without paying this month, considered how much trouble I would be in with the wife and decided that I could live with being in the dog house for a month or so...I was ready to go. No more than 10 minutes had passed when I checked back and...SOLD...to somebody else. 10 freakin minutes of delay and I lost it. You snooze, you lose and I lost big time. Ah well, the hunt continues.

The Persian Mauser Carbine has got to be the hands-down most beautiful Mauser that I have ever seen. The first time I saw one was in a post by JunkYardDog over at the Russian Mosin Nagant Page and it was stunning, a real beauty. Accordint to JYD it throws quite a fireball, comparable to the M44. I would love to see that coming out of a Mauser!

So, this begs the question, if you all had your druthers what would be your dream Mauser? My vote goes to this Persian Mauser Carbine.

While I have never handled a persian carbine I have messed with a Persian 98/29 mauser rifle. Fit and finish were spectacular and that still doesn't describe it. Probably one of the prettiest military rifles I have ever encountered

But the Persians are nice!

The Persian Mauser carbine is a fantastic little rifle, very well made, at least the Czech made ones, I have not had any of the later ones the Persians produced, but have been told nothing negative about them. They do come up for sale on the auction sites, but the prices can be steep on them. The fireball on the Mauser is larger than the Mosin M44, shorter barrel.

I just this weekend got to handle a Persian Rifle not carbine. Excellent condition all matching gorgeous rifle in pristine condition. I dont ever get any guns myself so no dream Mauser from me, my dream right now is just to find a super compact .45 for carry. I myself would like a Central American Mausers with the huge gorgeous crests which are hard to find in great condition, German would have to be the Ammunition Test Model of the K98K with heavy barrel, removable iron sights high turret scope mounts. That would be a very sweet shooting rifle
