I have a Czech VZ24 rifle that has the manufacturer's markings in small print on the left side of the receiver. Yesterday I was in a gun shop that had a VZ24 that had the markings in large "artsy" letters on the top of the receiver. What could be the significance of the two marking styles? Is it age? (The factory is BRNO for both guns.)
I think I got it figured out. The one with small text on the side of the receiver is a 7.92x57 made for Czech military while the other one is a 7mm made in 1932 to fill an order of 15,000 rifles for Brazilian rebels.
