Got this very nice German modified VZ24. German mods include a front sight hood and groove, blued bolt, and rear swivel removal and dowel plug. This refills the German VZ slot in my collection with probably the nicest one I've found. Only two flaws...bolt shroud does not match (26 vs 80), and the rear sight/hand guard screw is broken off. Don't know at this point if I'll fix it or let it be...I'll need help as removal of the stump is beyond my abilities. Added an original German sling and German modified VZ24 bayonet (removal of the barrel ring and grinding down the ears). No German proofs or depot markings. There might be a Czech Lion at the base of the pistol grip on the stock. Cost me less than the going rate of a RC K98.

Pics. Major inconvenience now that I have a PC lap top that replaced my MacBook. I have an iPhone 8 that won’t talk to the PC. I have to email the pics to myself or post pics separately from the phone :mad:

Nice score Tim. I don't know much about these. Does the lion crest appear in other locations on the rifle? Think I see it on the magazine follower and bolt handle?
