CZ VZ24 – 8mm Mauser


For sale is a Brazilian VZ24 bolt-action rifle in 8MM Mauser. Serial number- C45753. The stock and receiver are matching but the bolt is not. The bore is in Excellent condition!. In the late 1930’s the Japanese Navy was forced to source the small arms it needed from Europe because the Japanese Army was allocated everything the Home Arsenal’s could produce for the war in China. The Famous Czech Firm of Brno had large numbers of Vz24 Rifles on hand for export and they were actively selling them to both the Nationalist Chinese Government and later to the Japanese Navy and also to Several European Nations such as Romania and Slovakia. These rifles are identified by the "P" suffix serial number, however there was a special group of rifles that were produced at Brno’s Bystrica Factory and they are marked with a "C" suffix only on the stock. This is one of those very rare rifles, and they are confirmed to have been entirely shipped solely to the Imperial Japanese Navy and no other attribution has been found. The Japanese Naval use of these rifles is well documented, they armed landing parties from ships and the very Famous Special Naval Landing forces, the Japanese Marines. The VZ.24 rifle is a bolt-action carbine designed and produced in Czechoslovakia from 1924 to 1942. It was developed from the famous Mauser Gewehr 98 line, and features a very similar bolt design.
