1938 Dated Czech VZ 24 8mmx57
A Nice 1938 Receiver ring dated Czech VZ 24 showing a lot of original bluing, a nice bore and the usual dings and dents from service. While no numbers match on the rifle, it does show signs that it probably was imported from Eastern Europe (Probably Romania) in the early 1990's as it has a very tiny Century Arms import stamp on the bottom of the barrel. Romania purchased thousands of these VZ's before WW2 and they saw service as a German ally during WW2 and in the post war turmoil till the Soviet Union fell apart. Rifle shows an interesting rack number painted on the top of the butt as well. While Romanian contract VZ's are a bit common these days, this one is a bit nicer than the well worn and well used usually seen.
