Zombie Slayer SBR Mauser

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. 


Current status of the SBR Mauser

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.


Another NFA project.

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:

M48 SBR

and

Fireball

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!
