Im going to have to get someone to take it out of the display to see what the markings are, because it seems like it can only be one thing or the other, not both.

M48 rifles shouldn't be Russian captures.. They are Yugoslavian, a shorter intermediate-length action in 8mm or if'en you wanna get technical 7.92mm. A stamped floor plate is a M48A or B variation. Only war they may have seen some limited use in was the Yugoslav Wars.

So, yeah, tell the fella get off the hooch at work

So, an update.
went to the same store today, too hungry and in a hurry, so i didnt catch this in time to ask anyone.
They have a K98 for a lot of money  and then The cheaper russian capture is a zastava M48 According to the tags.
About an hour later i thought, what the hell war was going on still in 1948?
So, dear Mauser knowing people, what is a M48, did the russians capture it or is the tag making guy at the store drinking on the job.
And if i go back to look again, what should i look for?
The only other thing i remember is it was 7.92mm.
And it had stamping lines around the edge of the floorplate.
