    As best as I understand it the Czechs used the Turk contract to clear out all of the Gew98 clones. They took all of the Army inventory as well as new production long guns and shipped them out to Turkeyicon. They then began production of short barreled VZ-24's for Army use. I have a long barreld Gew98 clone out of Turkey that is marked VZ-24. So I guess the marking VZ-24 initially did not refer to the short barreled rifle. The Czechs really took their time making these rifles and they are nice additions to any basic Mauser collection.

    I note in the photos that the triggerguard pictured has a Germanicon WWI stamp on it. Very common, as the the Czechs had piles of German parts as WWI war reparations.

    The bayonet lug is also imperial german proofed. The rear band has two numbers, one set on each side and I wonder if they just flipped the band around and renumbered it. Also, serial number in barrel channel of stock matches.

    m4a3sherman, here is a fun fact. These 98/22 Mausers are a great milsurp shooters deal! For a low cost of both rifle and ammunition you can shoot a full sized old world Mauser battle rifle. Most have seen plenty of use and rebuilds so you dont have to bee too careful with them. Just grab your rifle and ammo and shoot all afternoon.

    Regards milsurps

    Heh, waaaaaaay ahead of you- I love shooting my milsurps, especially the inexpensive ones. Although, to be fair, as much as some of these cost you, I kinda feel like it MUST be shot... just to justify it- like buying a super car and not driving it... booo

    And between dirty old surplus ammo and relatively cheap Prvi Partisan, they aren't too hard on the wallet to enjoy!
