The whole rife is a 98k.. German made. The only thing not 98k is the vz24 bolt. Am I on the right trackshort answer, yes, not sure about hand guard style on chinese rifle? does it have a lip on the rear sight, like a K98k?
if chinese hg is the long clip type, then no worries.
Thanks you just made my decision easier...I'll keep it the way it is. Really appreciate ityes the Vz stock will work, but the Vz hand guard won’t. your rear sight base has a lip to hold the short hand guard, this would prevent the Vz hg from sitting down as it must, unless you carve a big groove in the underside for the lip. the Vz lower band is closer to the rear sight than a K98k, so the band shoulders are in different places.
If you were just setting it up for hunting, you don’t need a hg or bands, just some way to secure the sling in the front.
what about a used Israeli stock? everything would fit, but has finger grooves like a Standardmodell.
