Fox Studio G98

Thought you might be interested in this one. A G98 stamped with 'Fox Studio'. It came with the bayonet, as well.

Had it out, figured I post it.

Got this one out to help another collector & thought I'd go ahead and post it. It's unique in that, unlike many Turks, it has a matching bolt.

Nice, how's the bore?
Bore is good. Looks like there may be a little leading to remove.

Re: Restoring VZ 24

1 option is to put it in military dress and add a vintage scope for a 'faux' sniper. I do know where complete stock sets for a VZ-24 can be sourced.

Re: vz23 with wrong bolt

Finding a bolt with that prefix for your VZ-23 will be next to impossible. Best bet is to trade/buy for a standard VZ-24 bolt. Also, you can attach pictures directly using options found with the 'Full Editor' option.

Re: Hello from Southeast Idaho

Welcome. I have an unconverted M95 Budapest, myself. It's missing the sight slider, however. On a side note, my little brother lives on the Salmon river.
