    Default M.24 Yugo Mz rework

    HZa rework of Yugo M.24 carbine. Stock and triggerguard came from one rifle, were renumbered to match second rifle and parts. Refinished during rework. Mint bore. Mz (Mainz depot) but unlike my other Mz repair, it does not appear to have a number after the Mz. Old dried grease in bolt, firing pin in white numbered to rifle.

    Well, at that price I don't know how much of a "grab" it was ;) However, the seller is a great guy, a collector like us, and I'm happy he got that for it. I was happy to pay him this and needed this variant. It's in exceptional shape. Win win.

    That helps. In psychology circles you are what is called "an enabler"

    I don't know why, but I really like the Yugo M24 rifles. This one is cool!

    I can see the number in the original auction photo. Its the typical 6 or 8. Right next to the dent. Cannibalization seems to be the rule with repairs on Yugo rifles (all of which seem to come out of Mainz) with the minor exception of the police modified M1924s. Nice one!

    Tks guys. Ryan, I thought typical Mz.8 too, but when I looked at it it looked like more space between the z and where the number should be. That pic that you turned and enlarged shows it much better than I saw. Thanks.

    Good job, Hambone! I'm glad a member got that one, its a very nice representative of the species, and looks great. Congrats, and enjoy!

    RyanE,
    Actually, I have one that is 'Jt 20' (Ingolstadt) marked, not Mainz. It's marked in the same manner as Hambone's but modified a bit more. Mrfarb's right, the pre-war Yugoslav rifles have an appeal all their own!
    Best,
    Pat
