Guns For Sale - CZ -- VZ 24 8mm Mauser caliber rifle_S1



This auction is for a CZ VZ 24 8mm Mauser caliber rifle.  Mechanically this gun functions well and condition is very good.

The VZ 24 rifle was designed and produced in Czechoslovakia from 1924 to 1942.  It was developed from the Mauser Gewehr 98 line, though is not a clone of any specific Mauser model. The fit and finish are of the highest quality.

The VZ 24 rifle was designed in Czechoslovakia shortly after WWI.  It was a new design, featuring a 23.6" barrel which was shorter and more handy than the 5.9"-longer Gewehr 98.  FN and Mauser Oberndorf produced similar-length Model 98 variants, the latter designating it the "Standard-Model'. The thinking was, as with the British SMLE and US Springfield, a short rifle gave away little in ballistic efficiency at combat ranges, but was easier to handle due to shorter length.

"VZ" is an abbreviation for vzor, which translates as model; "24" represents the year of the design, 1924, and the rifle replaced the 98/22 Mauser that was in production before it. The VZ 24 was produced in Brno and Považská Bystrica (from 1938–1942). The only way to identify the production location is by the serial number pattern and the VTLU code. A Brno manufactured rifle would have a serial number as such: 1234 T3. A Považská manufactured rifle would follow this pattern: A5 2345. The VTLU code (Czech acronym VTLU stands for Vojenský technický a letecký ústav - Military technical and aviation institute, which was responsible for acceptance of Czechoslovak army weapons) was an inspection and acceptance stamp. A code observed would be E4-lion-38. The E4 would denote where the acceptance took place (in this case it would be Považská Bystrica), the lion would be the national symbol of Czechoslovakia and the 38 represents the year, 1938. Here is a breakdown of VTLU codes:

E1 - Pilsen (Plzen)
E2 - Adamov
E3 - Brno
E4 - Považská Bystrica
E5 - Vlašim
E6 - Semtin
E7 - Strakonice
E8 - Prague (Praha)

The vz. 24 rifle was widely used the world over, by Romania, Iran, Guatemala, China and others. Many of the contract rifles made for South American countries were chambered in 7mm Mauser or 7.65×53mm Argentine.

During WWII, the vz. 24 was produced for the German occupiers. The factory was located at Považská Bystrica in the Slovak Republic.
