After the German invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1939, production of the vz. 24 and the shortened, lightened version, the vz. 33, continued. The vz. 24 differed only in detail from the German Kar 98k. The action was identical except for markings, and the overall and barrel lengths were very similar. The main differences were superficial; the vz. 24's straight bolt handle, different sling attachments, a solid walnut stock in place of the laminated stock of most Kar 98ks, a full length upper handguard instead of the Kar 98k's shorter item, and a minimum rear sight setting of 300 meters instead of 100 meters. The G24(t) produced under German control progressively gained some Kar98k features, but the Považská Bystrica plant (receiver code 'dou') switched entirely to Kar98k production in 1942. The Brno plant (receiver code 'dot') followed suit in 1943 after ceasing production of the G 33/40 (t) carbine.[7]

M24/52 Rifle Reworked Czech vz. 24 rifles[citation needed] in overhaul program similar to M24/47 beginning in 1952. Standard length action.

The Citation needed means there is no credible proof they ever were used. Since the action is Longer then The Yugo 24, It is very doubtful. Since it has been 61 years and there is still no example to prove it ever happened. Odds are it did not.
Freedom is not free. The best of us always leave too soon.
