I received an email this morning, from viper5243, about his SBR 8mm Mauser, I’ve featured on here before.
He informed that he’s had his Mauser refinished, turning it into a Zombie Killer rifle.
The rifle looks great, the addition of the DeGroat Flash Enhancer and the Trench Magazine really make it a one-of-a-kind. Like it wasn’t one already…
The excellent work appears to be performed by 7.62 Precision Custom Firearm Finishes. More pictures can be seen on their site as well.
I have acquired a nice blonde stock from a sporterized 98k. It was a flat butt plate stock, cut down some on the back, and cut and rounded in the front.
Sarco still has cupped butt plates, so I ordered one.
My friend Mark made a jig for his table bench grinder, and trimmed the butt area down to accommodate the cupped plate.
The barrel is measured and marked. I think it’s going to be cut at 7″ exactly.
The project is now on hold until the Form 1 gets approved.
After scanning through a “Post a picture of your SBR” on AR15.com, in the mix of all the short AR15s and few AKs, member viper5243 posted the following:
I had very mixed feelings. I was in awe of the shortness of the gun, also stunned by the sheer terror of a cut up C&R gun, while breathless of the size of the fireball, but yet attracted to it like the proverbial train-wreck you can’t look away from.
The decision was made after dreaming about it that night: I need to build my own.
It was definitely worth the $200 NFA tax to register one SBR.
(SBR is a registered Short Barreled Rifle, usually a rifle with a barrel shorter than 16″. SBRs, along with other items are regulated by the NFA division of the BATFE)
I contacted viper5243, and he informed me that it was built from a Yugoslavian M48 Mauser, had a barrel length of 9″ and on overall length of 26″.
This thing was a monster!
