    Default Germanized VZ24 Variations

    Guys I would like to see a thread with a focus on the many variations of VZ24s modified by the Germans, from initial use of unmodified but German used VZ24s, up to the adoption of the true G24[t]. Please assist me in this endeavor. I will post photos of all my guns one a day and would like you to do the same. I think this would be an excellent tool for all of use to identify and verify the diverse nature of modifications to this weapon. It is important to remember 11 plus divisions of the German military carried these rifles into combat.

    Here is a G24t that was shown here 6 years ago. A nice example.

    Default Here's one of mine

    Everyone a bit different, as though there was no standard modification format....

    The bolt being blued seems to be the norm.

    Thank you, here's another //// note how side sling is completely milled off /// as stated it seems no two are exactly the same, which is surprising given how anal the Germans were / are.

    Default Another Unmodified VZ24

    The only thing that links this matching rifle to German use is the Czech Military acceptance stamp, the rampant lion crest and the Kar98k sling that was on it when purchased.

    A great choice for a topic Dave. I have no weapons to contribute but if it's alright I'd like to discuss some particulars of manufacture. The main plant at Brno is well documented and not many inconsistencies show up. The daughter plant is another story. I'd like to discuss some particulars regarding production there if you think it's appropriate.
