Picked this guy up. Pretty nice rifle. Any information or thoughts are appreciated. I don't know the entire history of these but here is what I have read.

Looks like an early first 10,000 production run of this rifle made for the Czech army after WW1. Many early production guns were built using Gew.98 parts from Germany and then stamped by CZ. German markings remain on many parts of this rifle I believe. Also, it is using the early rear sight leaf, roller coaster sight. The bore is in great condition.

Looks like it eventually was sent to Turkey and they also stamped certain parts of the rifle. Most numbers are matching except the rear sight base which you will see. As the base of the sight leaf is stamped one number, it appears as the others are matching the rest of the rifle. The stock matches the rifle as well. Pretty much everything.

It also looks like while in Turkey, they stamped their number which matches the CZ numbers on the bolt. Also some crests have been marked.

I think this is an interesting find as I just haven't seen any of them before actually. Somewhat rare maybe, or have I just overlooked them?

Sweet. That's as close as you will get to a Gewehr 98 without it being produced in Germany.

mrzachary,

Excellent post with picture. Your findings on the history is what I found when I found mine a few years back. I have seen them also refereed to as VZ-22 Type 1. Thanks for sharing.

Kevin
