I've got this 1939 VZ24 that has been sitting around waiting for me to identify some of it's markings.
Can ya'll help ? or point me to a website where I can learn what the various markings on each location on the rifle mean?
I figure most of the marks are probably some sort of proof marks..for which countries besides Czech..I don't know,
Need Schooling.

Is this a Romanian contract rifle? I'm not even sure if it's worth keeping or if it's a parts gun :?
Here's the pics..

On the pic below:
Not even sure if this is a "mark" on the end of the receiver. Some of the edges seemed too straight to be damage or pitting.

I pulled off the protector to take a look see.
Alignment mark for the front site? Image

Can't figure what this (serial #?) is/means on the bolt handle
Image

More pics available upon request. Oddly enough the VZ23 marked bayo fits this VZ24 perfectly..more research needed on barrel diameters on VZ23 vz VZ24...but that is for later.
Must sleep...need rest

It appears to be a Romanian contract rifle - 2 letter prefix ending in R

I also thought that the "R" was Romanian.
Mismatch bolt, but romanian also
I also thought that the Romanian had the "R" number on the Barrel??? Stock too, But...I may have been "molested" sometime in its life...Like the one from china that I have..Non Romanian contract, but a Romanian barrel!!!
