Vz24 right side
This is a Czech contract rifle, proofed in 1937, the sniper variants were reportedly made pre WWII & fitted w/a Czech 4x scope, post war they were used until the adoption of the Vz54 Mosin based snipers rifle (see the Vz54 album for info on that rifle), reportedly some of these Mausers were also fitted w/Soviet PE/PEM scopes as shown requiring shimming the scope to the rings, others used whatever scopes the czech's had on hand. There is also a Romanian verison of this snipers rifle (see the Romanian section for pics/info) but Czech &/or Romanian marked specimans could have been used by either the Czechs or Romanians post WWII.

Vz24 right butt view
Unk as to the meaning of the painted number but it's probably a rack number

rear side view of scope/mount
Note the odd scope mount w/the horizontal rail connecting the rings & the difference in diameter of the scope tube & ring diameter taken up by shimming the scope w/aluminum strips, also the turned down bolt handle & cutout in the stock compared to the standard Vz24's straight bolt & smooth side stock.

Action, scope/mount right detail
Not all of these Vz24's set up for scopes had the stock cutout, I've seen a few w/smooth sides, also some w/straight bolts although most of these rifles have been reworked & are not matching so not much can be determined from these examples.
