    Looks like it was put together more recently with a Yugoslav reworked stock, barrel and front sight base. The front sight looks tall even for a Yugoslav M24/47, which has a taller base than a K98k.

    The RC stock was added from a different rifle as the Russian applied stock s/n doesn't match the RC rifle action.

    Looks to be in nice condition. Interesting that the bore diameter (7,91) is marked top center of a 44 dated barrel. Thinking that stopped being done on barrels around 1942. Maybe 7,91 marked by the...

    Looks like an "8 MM" stamp on the receiver side wall. That is found on most of the Spanish used rifles in that caliber imported by Interarms in the 50's-60's. Most likely delivered from Poland to...

    Maybe check rear sight graduation starting at 200M like on Hambone's Slovak contract in that link instead of 300M of typical Vz24.

    Yes, that's always the problem with using those Yugoslav refurb stocks to restore a non-Yugoslav reworked K98k. I have seen a couple that were not shortened, but most seem to have been. The VZ24 band...

    Nice find! The Yugo M1924's did not use a sight protector. The cleaning rods are the same dimension as the VZ24 rods.

    The stock looks to be one of the post war Yugoslav refurbs that was shortened about 1/2 inch. You can tell by the location of the forward barrel step and the front band.

    The OP says it's "matching", but I think we need to rule out a 1916 rifle being placed in a later depot reworked stock by somebody as a restoration project.
