For some reason it will not let me post the dirty bird inspection marks photos. :think: I always have problems posting photos with my 9 year old Mac. Got to do it one at a time and can only get 5 per post. Hence, so many individual posts for 1 rifle. He had two other Israeli .308 K98ks on the table, but all around $400. Both were FNs with the IDF crest. About the same condition except bore and muzzle condition varried. I took the one with a like new bore and good wood. I figure not bad for a nice vz 24 lacking the intact crest as a trade. We were both happy. He got my shooter, and I just found out this one is a tack driver, so that is a good trade in my book. :clap: :doh:

It is interesting the different markings and black paint and how each rifle looks. Each has a restamped matching bolt. Yours has a normal trigger guard, mine a winter larger trigger guard??? Your stock looks rubbed down mine was oil soaked. The dog beat Guatemalan rifles with CAI import marks and a secondary dot matrix serial number on the receiver from 2004 did not have matching bolts, sewer pipe barrels and really beat stocks. Vandle, I guess we were both lucky. Is yours import marked?

Hi 72 usmc

There are no import marks on the rifle. I believe it would have been imported direct into Australia.
Thank you for sharing information on your Israeli, its a very interesting subject seeing there are so
many variations to get ones head around.

Cheers
