    I recently purchased a czec vz 24 rifle, its a bolt action, and I have been trying to find some good info on it aside from wiki and a few people saying that THEY like THEIRs which is great. Buuut what I was really hoping for was some semi factual opinions from some of you folk on here about its pros and cons, max effective range and all that jazz. Also has anyone ever heard of a ww2 bolt action rifle with a mag on it? Near as I can tell it is a non detachable mag that looks to my untrained eye to hold 10ish 8mm rounds on top of what is normally inside of the rifle itself. Any info and opinions on the gun and/or 8mm mauser ammo would be great, and as always thanks in advance. I'll have pics up sometime tomorrow afternoon

    If your barrel is nice an shiney it should be a good shooter. They also make a good action to build guns on. I have one that I turned into a 35 Whellen. If your just wanting a good deer rifle you have it.
