Default VZ-24 build

I have an old VZ-24 action and I'd like to make it a shooter again, I need to find a bolt, magazine and all the parts that go with it, and a trigger guard, has a trigger, barrel, and stock with the action. Maybe somebody with a shot-out barrel wouldn't mind selling me some left-overs? I'd consider an offer for everything but the barrel and action.

Check out Numrich. K98 part will work on a VZ24. Plenty of other 98 parts vendors on the net as well.

Are you just wanting a shooter? It's going to cost almost as much for all those parts as it would a complete rifle. Right now would be a good time to strip it if you're wanting to build a sporter.
Sometimes you earthlings REALLY amaze me!

I used all 98 parts in my VZ24 so I don't know what that guy is talking about.

If you want to go extra cheap, you can knock the iron sights off a decent Millitary barrel, have it shortened and recrowned, spend $79 on a Boyds Walnut stock, and $80 to have it drilled and tapped for Scope mounts (this includes cost of mounts). You also will need the bolt handle forged down ($40 usually).

The 8x57 mauser is an extremely overlooked and extremely applicable round. It will kill anything in North America deader than it needs to be.

So you figure $80 for D&t, $40 for a decent Barrel $40-$50 for barrel recut, $90 for a shipped stock. $40 for finishing materials, and another $50 if you want an aftermarket hunting trigger.

That's $350 to start shooting before bolt forging and a scope.

Marlin XL-7, or Stevens 200 would put you in the same boat with a warranty for the same money.

I build mausers for a semi living. We build em as low as $350, and higher than $3,500. It all depends on the level of detail wanted. If you have a bare receiver with o bottom metal, or bolt stop, or follower/spring, your cost went up as well.

If you MUST have a rifle built on this action. Contact me with what you have, and I can get you an estimate on everything.
