They are pristine!! The same rifle will cost $329-369.00 locally. The 24/47 is well known for its' accuracy. Many Military rifles have a very long throat. The 24/47's I have had all had a throat equal to my Commercial Husqvarna.

Get the VZ 24 it is the higher quality. You can't go wrong with the VZ 24. I have built a few Mausers and I use only the higher end Mauser 98. The Turk Mauser is made of lower grade steel and there is no good way to find out which one ( the Truk's) are better made because the Truk's did get some of the rifles made in Germany.

What's the differance from a M24 and a M24/47? I know one thing is the K98-style front sight hood and the shorter pull.

Ok I totally messed that one up. Ok let's restart. What's the differance between the vz24 and the M24/47 besides the country of manufacter.

The Truk's, You ment Turks. The Turks bought 1895's and a few 1898 GEW's, but changed the pattern slightly. They are plenty strong, just not as refined. If you built Mausers, you would know how to refine the action.

The 24/47 is an intermediate action, it is slightly shorter then the '98 action of the VZ24. The Belgian M24 was also an intermediate action, it was the host for the 24/47.

So just the action? Ok I'm leaning toward the M24/47 unless I can find a vz24 around me.

Yeah I'm not a fan of Mitchell's at all. They are a fraudulent business and in my opinion, they take all historical significance out of the rifle by what they do. But they are great shooters and pretty accurate from what I hear.

Well i never ordered from em ,but they sure look nice on the website so strike my comments on mitchells then, i just got reamed for suggestioning them on another thread , i just went by what i saw when i was looking at em, look damn good on the web site but guess looks can be deceiving.I can say Samco has never screwed me .But dont take my advice choose on ya own i just make suggestions.But you wont know what ya getting till ya get it they dont put up pretty pics like Mitchell,s , with samco i found just be specific in what you want and remind them it isnt what ya ordered and asked for you will return it i say.but so much for mitchells they look good on paper.My bad just making a suggestion my freind.I never tell anyone where to buy just give suggestions on what i see .oops
