VZ 24 - what to look for?
I'm thinking about a Czech mauser 8mm for sale at a local pawn shop. It's priced at $250. What do I need to look for/at on this rifle - matching sn's, patina, import marks, arsenal marks? Wood looks good, so does the metal, but I only took a short look at it yesterday. Has not been sporterized or converted to 30-06.

"Then tell me this: Why would you want to hang around people that get uncomfortable, or even scared, about that kind of thing?" "Maybe to feel normal," I said. He laughed. "Normal's not all it's cracked up to be." "You think?" "Hell, I know." - from Spirits In The Wires, by Charles de Lint.
