NICE!
Do you ever provide any "personal shopper" services?

Romanian contract rifle had a scrubbed receiver, no roll stamp. It is not Persian either. The 2 countries I mentioned match closest. The Letter code would be E, number, loin stamp(not always) a number or letter block. This is what ID's the rifle. This was the lot and defining features. Some countries had there own specs, so this will tell what it truly is.

Default Serial Number

"Romanian" vz. 24s have a letter followed by an "R" in the serial number; for example SR 1XXX. Romanian vz. 24s "AR", "BR", "CR"... all the way through "YR" represent different periods of manufacturing.

BTW Your crest is clearr than mine but I have enough of mine left to know we have the same crest. Thanks for posting the pic, it might help me locate an unabused copy on line somewhere.

Guy

Default Parts????

While I'm here does anyone know where you can get parts for these guns? Mine is missing both sights and the upper wood section of the stock where the rear sight slot would be.

Price was right though, it was given to me and it has been checked and is safe to shoot. Pointless (pardon the pun) without sights....

Default Your Crest

I have attached a clearer picture of your crest, it is the King Carol crest.

I have a rear sight that I am not using. I actually bought it in the old days when Ebay sold gun parts and and assumed it would fit my K98. wrong! If I can find it, we can talk.

HighPlains drifter,

You interested in my rear sight if I can find it? If not, I won't go to the trouble of looking.
