Default Yugo M24 Mauser

I was on Armslist last night and found a Mauser for sale. It was unsporterized and looked pretty good. I emailed the guy and he said he'd email me pictures tomorrow (today) when he has company over because he doesn't know how to send pictures over email. I got a price and quick description of the markings. From what he's said it sounds like a M24 Yugo. It still has the crest and markings on the left side of the receiver. He said it hits kinda low and that it's in overall good condition except for a dark bore. He said it comes with the cleaning rod, and a box of two of ammo for $200. What do y'all think? I know that after the war the Yugoslavians took all the M24s and re-arsenaled them into the M24/47. Anyone know anything more than Wikipedia had to offer about this variant of rifle? All input is appreciated!

EDIT: it is not import marked. Is this possibly a vet bring back?

I forgot to add the picture. Here it is. imageuploadedbyfirearms-talk1387631669.652357.jpg
Also, will a K98 bayonet fit on this? Because the nose cap looks the same. The original bayonets on Samco are $119.

I would go for it. You can never have too many Mausers. I just bought an M48A Yugo today at a gun show, very nice condition for $200. Last year a friend picked up the M24/47 for $190. So, I would say yours is a fair deal.

Ok thanks. I've already decided to take it pending pictures. You can rarely find a rifle with a box or two of ammo for $200, even for most Mosins nowadays.

Default Yugo M24 Mauser

On a scale of 1-10, how hard is it to find these M24s? With 10 being the hardest to find.

They are around.
https://www.samcoglobal.com/1-M24-47.html

$200.00 is a good deal as long as he does not want big $$ to ship.

The M24 was a Belgain rifle. Yugoslavia (Serbia) bought some and then bought the rights and machinery to produce them. In 1947 they redesigned the rifle. I believe production stopped in 1952. Some are original Belgain receivers, but most are Yugo made. They are very accurate Mausers. The ones I've owned have been very good. The one I have left is as accurate I any production rifle today. There are certain markings to look for. 1.TRZ which is stamped on the stock and TRZ.5 Which would be in script on the side of the receiver. Both of these codes tend to be more accurate then the standard ones. They both underwent some sort of extra work. There is also this manufacturing stamp that predated Prodeze 44

I've got a Yugo M24/52c with a straight bolt. It is the M24 made with Czech Vz24 parts instead of Belgian parts. For $200 I'd go for it they're both really nice rifles!

They are fairly common but usually $250+ so I'd say "3".

The Czech Vz24 is a standard Mauser action, The same as a K98. The Belgian or Yugo action is an intermediate, it is shorter. The 24/52 was a slightly different variant still using an intermediate action. You can Measure the bolt itself. That will tell you.
