Re: persian mauser or any persian gun
Another Persian gun you may be interested in buying, if you can find one. Is the short barreled or "Camel Carbine" Persian Mauser. Imported during the late 50's and early 60's it came in two models. One was a 1930's era (Czech made for Persia) 7.92mm carbine with a 17.5 inch barrel and the other was the (Persian made) 1949 model 7.92 carbine made with 17.5 inch barrels. There slight difference in markings and external detail, but both are essentially short barrel Mauser carbines. Mine is a 1949 model with a turned down bolt, all Persian markings, and the Imperial Persian Crest. It's great to shoot, but has the muzzle flash of a flame thrower in low light conditions and stiff recoil with full 7.92mm military loads.
