We went into a pawn shop here in town and walked out with a vz24 Mauser. I got it for $165 out the door. The bore is nice, typical vz24. It still has the front sight protector but no cleaning rod. It is not a Romanian contract. It still has the Czech markings on the receiver. More pics to come when I get home. I got this instead of the Yugo M24 I was going to get for $200 on Saturday. What do y'all think? Thanks for any input!
