    Disassembled. It has been together a long time, but the info under the hood is important.

    It looks like the rear sight has a lowest setting of 200m? My 2 VZ24s both bottom out at 300m. Was this rear sight a German modification to the original design?

    Nice!

    Any firing proof on the bolt ball? I wonder why some of these appear virtually sterile, while others have Slovak firing proofs (or in at least one case German ones) on the barrel/receiver/bolt?

    I agree, makes no sense. I've seen serials from both types that overlap, so I don't think it's a change. I was thinking about these sometime back, and wondered if these with the T proof weren't Slovak, but maybe something else. They are very similar to the Slovak marked rifles, and just as rare. Note that the Slovak ones have in the white bolts, these are blued.

    Maybe they are entirely separate serial runs? One run for Slovakia and one run for some other purpose?

    Thanks guys. That's the same one Andy. The only inspections on it are those shown. I tend to agree with the general idea that this was a different production run than the Slovak inspected rifles.
